Dread: Doom clone for the Commodore Amiga 500

Doom’s a classic. One of the biggest games in the world that, in 1995, was installed on more PCs than Windows 95. Reminiscent of its predecessor, Wolfenstein 3D, Doom had some incredible visual effects before 3D hardware was widely available. Even now it’s been ported and pulled onto almost every machine possible. There are so many different versions of Doom now that almost anything is possible; but an Amiga 500 with just 1MB of RAM? Yes! Thanks to the march of progress and some ingenious tinkering on the part of Amiga programmer and Demoscene guru KK of Altair. The developer released another new development video on Youtube about his ongoing Doom clone ‘Dread’. The game uses assets of the FreeDoom project and requires some quality programming and efficient level design to have the best results. The development of the game is making good progress and it’s impressive to watch, this all time classic is really playable on the Amiga 500 powerd by a Motorola 68000 @7.09 MHz. The only thing we need is a time machine and set the date back to 1987, and the world will never be the same again….
