Back of Box - N64 (UK):

    You Killed The Demons Once, They Were All Dead. Or So You Thought...

    A single Demon Entity escaped detection. Systematically it altered, decaying dead carnage back into grotesque living tissue. The Demons have returned - stronger and more vicious than ever before. Your mission is clear, there are no options:

    KILL OR BE KILLED!

    • Stunning 3D graphics, ultra-smooth game play & CD quality music/sound effects blend seamlessly to make this the most incredible version of DOOM ever!
    • Be on the lookout for enhanced weapons, unbelievable secrets and startling surprises as you journey through the nightmare world of DOOM 64.
    • Choose 1 to 4 of difficulty settings and prepare to match wits with 16 radically redesigned creatures. They could be anywhere, so stay alert as you fight your way through more than 30 terrifying levels!
    • Designed only for the N64, this all new version of DOOM ushers in a new era of game play and performance!

www.nintendo.com – Nintendo 64:
    Williams and ID Software teamed up to bring the hottest PC action game to the Nintendo 64. Doom incorporates texture-mapped 3D rooms, multiple weapons, challenging enemies, and surreal sound into one of the most heralded games ever. Players move from area to area, through narrow passageways, vaulted rooms, and dark tunnels on their quest. The concept is basically "good vs. evil" in which you, as a representative of good, must seek out and defeat alien demons.

    The Nintendo 64 version of Doom contains new levels, enemies, and enhanced graphics not available in any other version. There are 32 levels in all, but many are accessible only through finding all the secret exits in other levels. Parts of each level are straight-forward: if it moves, shoot it. But you'll also have to find keys, hit switches, and keep track of your location. A switch may open one door, but close another.

    Weapons vary, and you must find the more powerful weapons as you play. The Pistol and Shotgun are o.k., but you'll do much better against some enemies with the Super Shotgun, Chain Gun, Rocket Launcher, Plasma Gun, BIG 9000, or Laser. The Chainsaw works great when you're in close, but don't try to use your bare fists unless you've found a Berserk Patch.

    The enemies in this game are very dark. You will face Zombiemen, Specters, Pain Elementals, Imps, Hell Knights, and many others on your way to the final confrontation with the Mother Demon. Doom 64 is not for the faint of heart!
