Play Doom, Hexen and Heretic in your web browser

Posted by ClifNotes, May 2009, permalink Games


I can recall when these games arrived on the scene. Doom first appeared in 1993 and DOS was the operating system. These games were that made FPS (first person shooter) games popular. I was never a big fan of Doom, but I remember playing Hexen for hours.


Some mad hacker has ported these games into Flash 10 so that you can play them in your web browser. These are the old games so you won't be impressed with the graphics, but you could sure waste some time on them if you feel they offer a challenge. 


Be sure to read about the control key settings below before you fire them up. I didn't read them and died very quickly the first round.
