Heretic is a fantasy themed first-person shooter built on a modified Doom (DOS) engine. You can look up and down, carry a limited inventory, and even fly later in the game.

As the story goes, the Serpent Riders of the Abyss have pillaged the world and destroyed the hope of humanity. While only one Serpent Rider remains to oversee their plans for the world you, a heretic, have decided to fight against him in order to try and end their reign. You will utilize various magical weapons and spells to fight his evil minions and save your fellow countrymen.

Heretic supports higher fidelity output than the earlier Doom games, and Kevin Schilder uses an epic orchestral sound that fits the fantasy theme much better. The song titles come from the first map in which the song is heard.
