  DOOM. Who is DOOM? What is DOOM? Where is DOOM? Definition of DOOM. Meaning of DOOM.
DOOM was a controversial video-game in its time, due to its high levels of violence, gore and spattering of satanic imagery.
DOOM consisted of three episodes with nine levels each; eight of these levels needed to be completed to finish an episode, while the ninth one was a secret level that could be accessed from within the first seven.
The DOOM engine continued to be developed even after the initial release of the game; there were a total of 11 versions, from the original 1.0 that was released on December 10 1993 to the final 1.9 release.

 Science Fair Projects - DOOM
Doom was the first installation in a franchise that saw continuing success; it was followed by the sequel Doom II: Hell on Earth (1994) and numerous expansion packs, including The Ultimate Doom (1995), Master Levels for Doom II (1995), and Final Doom (1996).
Doom exceeded its predecessor in terms of popularity as well as critical reception and influence on the industry, and is today widely regarded as one of the most influential games of all time, laying a foundation for the popularity and further development of 3D action games during the rest of the 1990s.
Doom prompted fears that the then-emerging virtual reality technology could be used to simulate extremely realistic killing and in 1994 led to unsuccessful attempts by Senator Phil Talmadge to introduce compulsory licensing of VR use.
