guns? boring. rocket launcher? Who do they need? The only thing the Man of Doom needed to defeat the Giants of Hell is two bare fists—and maybe a cheeky kick or two, if the Doom II mod doom fighter Anything to go.
Released on ModDB over the weekend, Doom Fighters reimagines the classic FPS as a retro 3D brawler. Do any Doom II campaign you like, with fighters slathering their arsenal and pulling back the camera for some over-the-shoulder punch-ups, giving Doomguy a chunky 3D makeover in the process. .
Now, our venerable slayer isn’t a complicated fighter, and there aren’t many fancy combos going on in this mod. But your man hits like a truck, hitting monsters and zombies with explosive force. He can also pick up villains and explosive barrels to strike each other, while Doom Eternal’s glowing red crucible sword makes an appearance to carve through hordes with remarkable proficiency.
With this week’s release marking the first version of Doom Fighters, developer Adipgaza hopes to beef up the mod with destructible environments, more weapons, a helpful NPC, and brutal execution moves.
Still, even at this early stage, Doom Fighters are worth a shot—if only for the utter hilarity of shinning a Cyberdemon.
