The headline is not misleading in any way. A modder by the name of “DooMero” has used the Doom engine, specifically the GZDooM hack, to recreate Donkey Kong Country in a 2.5D side scrolling platformer. The results are quite interesting to say the least.
Admit it, you knew this was coming. Maybe not today, maybe not next week, but you knew, at some point, I was going to dig into the hog waller. If that’s what you’ve been waiting for, retro gaming fans, then today’s your lucky day. Rejoice. Clap your hands. Give the ol’ banjo a tune-up. Because […]
