A downloadable game for Windows

What if Doom was a platformer instead of a first person shooter? The answer is miniDoom 2, a fan game that pays homage to the Doom franchise by reimagining it as a 2d retro platformer. It takes the beloved cast of classic DOOM enemies and weapons and blends them with old school 80s and 90s games like Contra and Metal Slug resulting in a fast paced pixelated carnage fest with a killer heavy metal soundtrack.

Calavera Studio you guys/girls are some rockstars!


Really good, one of the best retro platformers on itch.io

This game was amazing. I give MiniDoom2 5 Doomguys out of 5!

Well, Hell was about as welcoming as I had expected! Round four!!

Round three. It keeps getting better with no end in sight!

Hey I recorded a quick video if you'd like to check it out! :)

Hi!! Ihave some problems with sound
It doesn't work(((;I want to get a maximum of emotions from the soundtrack and sound in general
Please, help me, if you can))) Thank you!!


hey i like this game and i would actually recommend for you to put it up for some money; its worth it!


Wow! Are you crazy to offer such a game for free? It's one of the best action retro-platformer for me. Like earlier on the Neo Geo. Thank you!


Thanks a lot!

Great game! Just wondering if the game is locked at 45 FPS by design.

Yeap, it's set at 45.

Round two and I feel bloody, beaten and bruised. How anyone manages the higher difficulties, I don't know. But damn do I love this game!

Is there a way to customize gamepad controls? Or are the button assignments locked in?

Game pad controls are locked. The customization can only be done in the keyboard =( 

thanks for the retro

Thanks for playing!

Did you add the cheat codes that "Doom" had..?!

YES! but we made special versions of them so the game is still a bit playable and not completely broken =) [IDDQD and IDKFA]

You need to make them all, it won't  break the game, they didn't break the original "Doom"....


You were right, this one feels a lot better. The dodge roll and double jump are a huge addition and it really feels like they led to some major improvements in the level design. I cant wait to play more!

Thanks a lot for the review! 

Great game Amazing soundtrack. RIP and TEAR!

Thanks a lot! And thanks for the review!

Hats off, really nice work. :)
