The Super Nintendo version of Doom is a true wonder. Released two years after the original PC game, the port eschewed id Software’s Doom engine entirely. Head programmer Randal Linden instead built a whole new game engine (Reality) in order to get the game running on a 16-bit console with severe memory and storage limitations.

Sacrifices were inevitably made, as was the case with most console ports of Doom in the ’90s. This footage shows that floor and ceiling textures were absent, with a single colour as replacement (though skyboxes are intact). Elsewhere, some levels are missing owing to storage limitations, and enemy models are lacking quite a few sprites, to the extent that you’ll never see their backs.¬†
