im on vacation this week, been hoping for a gears patch, this seems like a nice alternative. Lemme close the media player, zip up, and get into gaming mode. (nana2)

So is it any good?

Sorry... I brought my main rig home, but I forgot the DVI-VGA converter, so no gaming on it during thanksgiving. :(

Wow this is quite possibly the most boring vertical scrolling shooter I have ever played. :|

Weak\Nonexistent sound effects, bland graphics (even if they are high res) and just plain boring gameplay.

It plays like a game that someone made while following a "my first game" programming tutorial, with some Direct 3D effects tacked on.

All of the nice backgrounds in the screens are static bitmaps in the game. They aren't 3D and they just look blurry when viewed full screen.

Twin Eagle 2 looked and played 100x better back in the mid 90s:

Oh well, Doomsday is the name for the modified Doom engine (http://www.doomsdayhq.com/) which supports Doom, Heretic and Hexen games.
