Just a novelty, July 11, 2019
An implementation of the entire "E1M1: Hangar" from Doom in text adventure form. Probably the most remarkable feature of this game is its high fidelity in re-creating the original game, especially the layout of the map (even the secret areas are implemented faithfully). Finding your way around can be confusing, though, when there are no visuals to guide you.

However, for all its novelty, the game itself isn't particularly interesting in text adventure terms. (Of course, perhaps that was the author's point.) Worth checking out for a chuckle, maybe, but gets old fast.

(For some reason, there's also a hunger daemon that kills you eventually probably the author's oversight?)
