Subpackage Descriptions
complete This is the doomgame-iwad-standard metapackage. It pulls in all subpackages of doomgame-iwad-standard.
doomsw DooM is a scifi / horror themed first-person shooter game released by ID software in 1993. Thanks to its then incredibly powerful engine and the fast-paced action, back in the day the game was nothing short of revolutionary. It supports different floor and ceiling heights, light effects and moving level geometry as well as features like teleporters. DooM also introduced the ever popular multiplayer mode known as Deathmatch. The first of the three original episodes, "Knee-deep in the dead", was released as shareware. This package contains the IWAD (resource container) file for the DooM shareware.
hereticsw Heretic is a dark fantasy first-person shooter game developed by Raven software and released in 1994. It uses a modified version of the Doom engine that supports new features like looking up and down as well as an inventory. The player can collect several magic artifacts and use them later. Those include among others: Health potions, an ancient tome that temporarily boosts weapons or the wings of wrath which enable fly-mode. The first of the three original episodes, "City of the damned", was released as shareware. This package contains the IWAD (resource container) file for the Heretic shareware.
hexendemo HeXen is an apocalyptic fantasy first-person shooter by Raven software. Published in 1995 it is the sequel to Heretic and uses a heavily improved Doom engine with higher resolution and many new features. HeXen lets the player choose one of three characters (a warrior, a priest or a mage). Each class has unique weapons and attributes such as toughness, power, and moving speed. Therefor different tactics are necessary to beat the game depending on the class chosen. Due to introducing hub levels, the game is largely non-linear as previously visited levels can be entered again. HeXen includes several large-scale puzzles. By completing parts of a puzzle new areas in various levels open up. The goal of each hub is to complete the puzzle, defeat the boss and get to the next hub. The engine features so-called ACS scripts. The scripting makes the world much more dynamic and allows for the cross-level puzzles. A four-level demo version was released for interested people to try out. This package contains the IWAD (resource container) file for the HeXen demo.
strifedemo Strife is a scifi themed first-person shooter by Rogue Entertainment that was released in 1996. It uses a much enhanced Doom engine. Strife is notable for adding some role-playing elements: There is a dialog system, player abilities (like accuracy) and several quests can be solved in more than one way. A currency (gold coins) can be used to buy items and ammunition. Due to the various missions the player has to accomplish, the story is much more important in Strife than in most fps games. As the player joins a resistence movement agains the oppressive Order, stealth rather than going rampage can be necessary and makes this game stand out from its primary genre. A limited demo version exists. While the game has been considered "abandonware" by many and offered for free downloading on the net, it actually is not. In 2014 a digital re-release on Steam happened. This package contains the IWAD (resource container) file for the Strife demo.
freedoom1 FreeDOOM is a fan-made project to re-create textures, sprites, sounds and all other data that is part of the registered version of DooM (including the fourth bonus episode of "The Ultimate DooM") and the not episode-based DooM II. The idea is to have a replacement for the full games that can be distributed freely together with the various source ports. A special WAD file for deathmatch levels is also part of the project. Textures are generally pretty similar to the original, while sprites for monsters etc. can be rather different. The levels are created from scratch and not modelled after the classic ones from the commercial games. This package contains the IWAD (resource container) file for FreeDOOM: Phase 1.
