In 1994, Doom was ported to SEGA 32X. SEGA32X is the hardware that turned SEGA Genesis into a 32-bit machine. In the name of science, someone decided to look at putting FPS games on the vanilla genesis console. The result is boring.
This handiwork comes from Twitter krikzzI have successfully run the Linux version of Doom on a typical off-the-shelf Genesis SEGA Everdrive cartridge. When I push the 16-bit retro console to the limit, old games appear as gray rectangles on the screen, but they don’t work. I say run, the actual gameplay is such a technical devil’s kettle, so it’s really just the main menu and demo screen.
Destiny was one of many aspects of the early to mid 90’s console war between Sega and Nintendo. Sega was initially able to get horror games on consoles, but it needed an add-on peripheral, 32X, but it was still not a perfect translation. Doom hit the SNES in 1995. This is a relatively weak version, but I didn’t need any other add-ons. Atari Jaguar and 3DO also have ports. Still, Doom was placed on everything that had a screen and buttons.
The list of appliances that can hold a small rift continues to grow. Last month, a new Nintendo game and watch was created to run Doom. If you want to get meta, you can build a PC with Minecraft and play Doom. Playing it at a Minecraft sheep or McDonald’s cash register may still be the strangest thing to do.
If you’ve ever wondered how Doom works on bare genesis hardware, here’s the answer. An interesting port based on the Linux Doom source is already here (:
