What would happen if Hocus Pocus was a fps rather than a sidescroller? Inquiring minds wanted to know!
So I did a thing.
Hocusdoom is an attempt to bring this crazy baked idea to reality
It is a mashing sidescroller turned 3d!

[===== Download: =====]
Requires the latest version of GzDoom and Doom 2.
Current playable demo for 01-04-2017
Mp3 versions of music (updated)
MusicallyInspired awesomely has made an SC-55 music pack of Hocus Pocus. It is compatible with Hocus Doom! Give it a try!
[===== Changelog: =====][===== Screenshots: =====][===== Features: =====]
Hocusdoom will have relatively the same features as the original Hocus Pocus. You complete maps by collecting all available crystals. However, you can find red crystals that let you warp to secret maps at the end of the level. You are awarded points for finding treasure, killing enemies, and completing each map within a time limit.
Rapid Fire Bottle - Fire shots lightning-fast (pardon the pun.) Will go through extra ammo just as quickly.
Extra Lightning Bolt - Lets you fire lightning bolts faster. Find 10 to shoot lickety split!
Fireball Bottle - Gives 3 shots that will obliterate and pass through any baddie. Bosses are a bit tougher but will still go through them!
Power Shot - Gives 20 shots that will kill any lesser monster. Does 10 damage to bosses.
Splitter Shot - Gives 20 shots. Shoot 3 lightning bolts at a time.
Homing Shot - Gives 50 homing shots. Lowest priority.
Power Wand - Completely replaces your original weapon with a more powerful variant. Other powerups will work the same as before--only more powerful. Lasts for the rest of the level.
Jump Potion - Lets you jump super high. Only useable once.
Teleport Bottle - Warps you to another area of the map. Only useable once.
Rubies - 100 points
Diamonds - 250 points
Golden Goblets - 500 points
Opals - 750 points
Emeralds - 750 points
Golden Crowns - 1000 points
Golden Ankhs - 1500 points
Crystal - 1000 points. Needed to finish a level.
Red Crystal - 10000 points and access to a secret level!
All powerups give 1000 points
[===== Help Needed: =====]
While I don't mind doing most everything by myself, there is one thing I could use help with--enemy sprites. I can use the original sprites for side views, but I need front and back views for them. If anyone would like to help, I'll provide a spritesheet that you can use as a base, to keep everything consistent.
What I'd love to do is have some sort of permanent inter-game scoreboard, but I don't think that's currently possible.
