Doom ported to Doom III
The Terminal DOOM demo is a DOOM3 port - of sorts - of the Classic DOOM source as originally released in 1997. The playable demo is available for Windows and Linux, and supports all shareware and retail versions of DOOM. You will have to have the retail version of DOOM3 installed, and you will have to apply the version 1.3 Patch to be able to run the Terminal DOOM demo. Once you applied the new patch, download the demo here from the mirror kindly provided by Ryan Gordon.

Doom for Sinclair ZX Spectrum
There is a port of Doom for the old Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128KB or upper. The Sinclair ZX Spectrum was a small home computer released in the UK in 1982 by Sinclair Research Ltd. Based on a Zilog Z80 CPU running at 3.50 MHz, the Spectrum came with either 16 KB or 48 KB of RAM (an expansion pack was also available to upgrade the former). The last Spectrum to be produced by Sinclair included three-channel audio via the AY-3-8912 chip, MIDI compatibility, 128 KB RAM, an RS-232 serial port and an RGB monitor output. The next versions of Spectrum were built by Amstrad Consumer Electronics plc.
Sinclair licensed the Spectrum design to Timex in the USA who produced their own derivatives.
Many unofficial Spectrum clones were produced, especially in Eastern Europe and South America. A non-exhaustive list at Planet Sinclair lists over 50 such clones. You can find the port at World of Spectrum!

DOOM 64 Absolution to PC
This modification is based off the early 1997 Nintendo 64 console DOOM title which was a slightly modified version of the original DOOM. This is not an exact duplicate but close for a new look and feel for a new generation of DOOM. DOOM 64 stays true to the traditional Doom gameplay and story line (you battleing the forces of Hell), and this is anything but a simple PC port. Doom 64 went above and beyond other versions with eye-popping visuals, flawless controls, and new levels. Everything was built from scratch, including totally redesigned monsters and weapons. Get it now at Fileplanet!

jDoom on Sony VAIO
This is a Sony VAIO running jDoom. JDoom by DHQ, is an incredible customized version of the Doom engine. Not only does it give the player mouselook and jumping, but the ability to use higher resolution textures and 3D models for both the monsters and the player's weapons. JDoom supports OpenGL, D3D and most importantly 3D sounds and reverb effects with DirectSound3D and EAX 2.0 or A3D 3.0. Once you download your source port, simply unzip/install it to a directory and dump your DOOM .WAD file in there too. Be sure to read the source port's "readme" file for detailed instructions.

The Amazing JAVA DOOM Emulator
Get comfortable in your chairs for this one! This port brings DOOM directly to your web browser via Java language. DoomCott amazingly reproduces the gameplay of the original game. To enjoy the power of DOOM in Java, simply click on the DOOMCOTT logo at the top of the page. When your finished playing sometime next year, come back and see what else we have for you. Now you know where I was yesterday. DoomCott was produced by The Java-Emu Team and written by Julien 'Gollum' Frelat. (Please note: if it doesn't work, try several different web browsers) Enjoy!
Play Now! [Thanks Thomas]

DOOM for WebTV PLUS?
This Doom implementation looks exactly like the MS-DOS shareware version. WebTV's
interest in providing games that can be played offline is to add functionality
that does not increase WebTV Network's connection costs. WebTV was quick to
note that the "Doom" game was a demonstration prototype only, and may NOT actually
be offered on the Plus. If you have Web TV give it a shot! The instructions
are below: First you must load Doom to your Web TV Plus Hard Drive. To do so,
Copy the text, excluding the phrases (Step:1) & (Step:2). Then press FIND. Paste it there. Press
FIND again to close it. Then press FIND one more time. You'll only see a " mark.
Press RETURN to begin downloading DOOM. The download will take about 30 minutes
with a 28.8 connection.
Once it's done loading, copy the text in the box below. Press FIND and paste the text there. Press FIND again to close it. Press FIND one last time. Then press RETURN. The machine will power off, then power back on and begin playing DOOM.
Note* When you want to play this game again, Simply logon & repeat STEP 2 only. Have Fun!
Nokia N-Gage QD
It runs well, has full sound, but the default controls could be better and I really wish I could remap them. It also doesn't look as fuzzy on the phone's screen as it does in the picture I took (my digital camera is kinda old). It's a little squished because of the shape of the screens on nokia phones, but it's still quite playable. It was originally ported by the Wildpalm Team. The download can be found here!
