This is the first game in the Doom series. For other games in the series see the Doom category.

Doom is a computer game created by id Software and published during 1993. The game is considered to be a cult classic among first person shooters. It was originally released as shareware, with only the first episode (Knee-Deep in the Dead) playable until players registered and purchased the rest of the game (episodes 2 and 3). A second version of the game, titled The Ultimate Doom, released the fourth and final episode (Thy Flesh Consumed).


Doom's plot takes place on moons of Mars during testing of an experimental teleport which fails and creates a time-space warp into Hell, allowing demons to invade the surface of Mars.
