About This File

DOOM95.EXE will work with any DOOM or DOOM2 main wadfile.

With DOOM95, you no longer need to keep your main wads in seperate directories. Copy all main wad files (DOOM.WAD, DOOM2.WAD, PLUTONIA.WAD, TNT.WAD, etc) to the DOOM95 directory and launch DOOM95. To play, choose the appropriate wad file from the launcher and then start the game.

I love cheats added in Doom95. First of all, it's my first source port. I played Doom, Doom 2 and Plutonia on dad's PDA (later I had been solving Hexen puzzles on gran's PC with Vibra 16 sound card AFAIR). Doom and Doom 2 were too glitchy to play and had no music. You may not believe what I say, I saw Doom for first time on my birthday when I got 1 year old.

 

The best game ever I seen.

To the person who said "Better than Zdoom"

 

ARE U KIDDING ME??? I sincerely hope u are kidding because any port is better than this (and zdoom totally destroys it). Stop being a hater.

Microsoft did this to promote Windows when they found that more people have installed Doom than Windows OS. They didn't bother to fix some bugs in this port, even claimed that game was made to be played without mouse. Choco Doom and other ports proves that Doom community have much more talented people than Microsoft. I think Doom was the reason for Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth being made by Roland too.

It was great to play with it in the past. And nowadays a must-have becauseof historical interest.

FFS people, stop reviewing this like it's new - it's history. And if you really do want history, play the DOS version on a 486 ($10 from eBay). If you just want the retro feel, then it's Chocolate Doom. Otherwise play PrBoom or ZDoom.

Get Chocolate or PrBoom+ instead. This port was rushed out the door by Microsoft.

Ah the memories I have of this. Fond ones too. Doom 2 for Christmas, then Final Doom the following one. Eventually I discovered Icarus Alien Vanguard... then I discovered that there were superior ports out there. but for a pure doom experience without DOS, this is it. 5/5

meh..I never really liked Doom95. The thing I always hated about it is how all the sound effects are inexplicably "slowed down" a tad and there's no option to fix it. And now that there's Chocolate Doom, Doom95 is rendered absolutely useless?!

I used this for years with the Maximum wad CD before I discovered the Doom ports, it's pretty good even now, although the blur effect screws up with my newer computer

      I was wowed by the amount of special effects on display for something as simple as vanilla Doom 2. Despite complains about the gameplay, I found myself enjoying it for the most part; it only felt a bit wonky to have the monsters teleporting in random locations which wasn't the most ideal setup for the amount of close quarters combat you'll be having in some tighter spaces. Someone could end up not having a good time with the monster placement getting randomized while it plays nicer for others. There's some dark caves and vent tunnels, and lots of wonderful little touches throughout like animated vent fans, a plane taking off, a computer running Doom II and other detail treasures. I would liken it to a Doom museum with a gameplay gimmick that may not fancy most Doomers out there, but I quite enjoyed my time exploring the world (or moon) of Phobos. I only wish it had more maps.

      10 out of 10. Better than Viva Pinata. Helped me become a better person. Greatest self-help Doom 2 mega-wad ever created.

      I'll admit to being indecisive with how to rank this experience, despite going in expecting to take it slow with the first map opening up with no action and just letting myself get pulled into the atmosphere. The music is pretty cool and sets the mood in places - I particularly liked destroying what seemed to be some kind of device which led to the next map blaring an alarm as I scrambled around the place. It's got some nice moments that carry the action a little better but loses momentum with the frequency in maps that contain lots of halls, doors and enemies packed in a rather square-looking interior. Being a lover of old-school vanilla wads, I did have trouble committing myself by the time I reached the third map. The good points weren't enough to outweigh the negatives for me, but there's always a chance someone can appreciate what they were trying to accomplish for the time it was released.

      Xenomorph Base has some cool moments and nice details to it, though I did feel in some places it either felt unpolished or wasn't as engaging as I'd hoped it would be. It's got a nice introduction to the action and starts to pick up much better with the second and third maps, however it seemed to drop in quality by that point, though I did enjoy the last map even if it felt a little shorter than expected. It does feel like something that could have used more work in places but as it stands it's an okay enough romp to blaze through.
