Just a little too late for Flash Friday, it's Flash Doom 2D, a fairly solid side-scroller.via Aaron Williams.

I will admit to being the first person who can be swayed to like something simply because it's Doom, but I really like the way the fifteen year-old graphics and sounds are put to use.

I really wanted to like this, especially being on a Doom kick lately, but playing the original the modern way is way more satisfying. For example, you can actually dodge shit.

It's ironic, considering that the Doom engine never allowed one walk-on-able point to be above another.

I've been playing Doom 2 most of the week. This is a nice change of pace.

I am as equally great at side-scrollers as I am terrible at FPSs, so this was a great confidence booster.

Reminded me of Zillion a bit.

fuzzypantalones: try typing "idspispopd" (or "idclip", depending).

Ah, I don't think I'll ever forget the Doom cheat codes.

Heh, a couple levels in and I'm enjoying it. It's like they gave it the Metroid Prime treatment in reverse.

Speaking of dimensionally-reductive versions of Doom, friends of Nethack may want to try out DoomRL if you haven't already.

It's neat, but what it lacks is the "what's behind that door" feel of the original.
