On this page of our guide to Doom Eternal we reveal and explain how to play the classic Doom 64 game. We also explain how to install Doom 64 so you can test this unique title that was released for Nintendo 64 console in the past.
As a reminder, Doom 64 was a Doom port on Nintendo 64 and was originally released in 1997. The gameplay in Doom 64 is very similar to the first two parts of the Doom series which hit the shelves in 1993 and 1994. The hero travels through the maps built on the principle of labyrinths, and has to find access keys or secret switches to reach more chambers and corridors. Of course, all levels are filled with hordes of hellish demons and a rich set of amazing weapons that are very effective in eliminating evil beasts. In addition to the weapons familiar to fans of the series (Chainsaw, Rocket Launcher, Shotgun, Double-barreled Shotgun, Plasma Rifle, Chaingun, BFG and some other well-known guns), Doom 64 also features a unique laser-based weapon called Unmaker. There are about 30 levels to complete. Also, the game offers some hidden and secret levels.
You can get Doom 64 in two possible ways:
