Doom (in Japan either as DOOM or as ドゥーム) is a first person shooter developed by id Software and released on December 10, 1993 for DOS-based IBM PC compatibles. It was later ported to numerous platforms, including the PC-9800 series. It is widely considered to be one of the games that pioneered and popularized the first person shooter genre, and retains a large, dedicated fanbase to this day.

The player assumes the role of a nameless space marine and through use of a varied set of weaponry, must fight his way through moonbases on Mars and the depths of Hell itself.

PC-9801 Versions

Ports of Doom to the NEC PC-98 architecture were programmed by Infinity Co., Ltd. Though based on Intel processors like the IBM PC, the PC-98 series featured a custom bus and different video hardware which made it binary incompatible with most PC software. Versions of the Doom games for this architecture were released on 5.25" and 3.5" floppy disk as well as on CD-ROM.
