Doom (32X) and Doom (JAG) were the first console versions of Doom (DOS) to include several changes, such as removal of several areas in levels to make a console adaptations (due to memory, cart capacity and other restrictions). While Sega 32X version of Doom was first made by J. Carmack, the publicity saw the Jaguar one earlier.

Doom on 32X is mostly good enough (and addictive) to play. Some little, not-so-much annoying disadvantages include: reduced screen size, (that you actually will fail to notice after a long play), non-rotative enemies who cannot infight but still can kill each one and the lack of Inferno levels making the game a little short. Among those also comes music (see below).

This Port had to suffer a lot of cuts and loss of quality in the music because the port is not well built, it even has only 17 levels and we don't have the BFG9000 (only through cheats).

The music of Sega 32X Doom is the worst thing, as say most fans of Doom. In fact, the soundtrack sounds like farts according to doom fans. On the other hand, you get a much reduced number of songs. Thefore, you cannot hear such breaking ones like I Sawed the Demons, Deep Into The Code or They're Going To Get You. Only the songs from Knee-Deep in the Dead episode are here (exception is Sweet Little Dead Bunny from Inferno), the other were taken out. Even not all of them are used. As sample, The End of DOOM and Introduction are hidden in the ROM but never played. Hacking the ROM to include custom levels can reveal these songs. ROM also has alternative version of At Doom's Gate.


These tracks have been recorded using a Mega Drive Model 1 VA0.

The credits appear after beating the game. If the player cheats to access the last level, they will not get the credits and instead be kicked into a fake MS-DOS command prompt.

While the game's instruction manual credits the original id Software team, it fails to credit Prince for some reason.
