A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

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.

And now with new weapons and skins from Doom Eternal!

Manual with the important moves, items and secrets: http://calavera.studio/en/games/minidoom2/manual/


  • 17 new levels and 2 new bosses for hours of fun (and frustration).
  • 14 weapons spanning all Doom games and additional secret weapons.
  • 40+ minutes of face-melting metal and spine-shivering ambient music, plus renditions of the classic “At Doom’s Gate” theme.
  • Secrets, upgrades and mysterious artifacts to discover and unlock.
  • Smooth and responsive controls that will make your skills the most important weapon to defeat the legions of hell.
  • Colorful, funny and bloody artwork inspired on 80s and 90s games.
  • 5 levels of difficulty and 4 game modes to fit every gamer, from the inexperienced rookie to the demon slaying hardcore gamer that has walked the planes for a million years.

you can make minidoom2 in android? (post android ver. in gamejolt ok?)

Great stuff!

trial of might is fecking autistically impossible on nightmare. 

OH NO, I'M SORRY! It looks like this moronic piece of shit is still beatable! 

Awesome game. Huge respect to the authors !!!

This game is perfect for consoledo you have plans to release it on xbox/ps/nintendo?

Olá pode trazer uma versão para Android??

Привет ✋👋. Потрясающая игра! Вы огромные молодцы! Так держать! Так зацепила меня, что я сделал fan fake трейлер выхода вашей игры для switch, было бы здорово ! Игра этого достойна точно!! 

would you do a physical release?

I would like to compliment this game for many reasons.

Among them: I love how you reimagined classic landmarks of Doom levels, and enjoyed suddenly recognising a familiar sight.

I also really liked the level design, especially how you hide secrets.

Could you put the game in Spanish please is that I speak Spanish and when I play this great game I don't understand anything and that is why I ask this please

This game is actually pretty fun in all honesty,  I kinda wish there was a map maker for this 

Mac version is broken. Upon opening the game, an error flashes, saying that the file is corrupted and needs to  be moved to trash. Please fix this 🙏🙏🙏

(1 edit)

IT’S NOT! You just have to follow the README in the game folder. I feel so silly having trashed all those Gamemaker games when the fix was so simple -- not even any terminal commands — just **drag to Applications**. There are a lot of workarounds we gamers can do on our side to hitches opening Mac ports (like CHMOD to fix permissions, UPX for unpacking, right-click opening and okaying in Security for unknown devs), and if all that doesn’t work, virtualize with Parallels/Wine or boot to a Linux/Windows partition. Minidoom secrets are incredible homage to the entire genre of 2D platform history!

The Mac version seems to be broken or corrupt in some way. Gets an error message upon launch that says it should be moved to the trash can. :-(

really nice game

I love this game so much.

hello, can you make a port for ps vita, if not then could you provide files for gms i will make a port



Amazing Game, excellent music, gameplay and, map design. I actually would like to see this become a publicly recognised thing! 

Heres a video I did

hello when i try to download minidoom 2 from the download prohibited when i try to restart the download it takes to a blocked page please resolve this error a and my system / computer and windows and i'm from brazil i'm using google translator

Please have an android port ;-;

i'll try plaing this because i also plan making a doom platformer game even though i still suck at making games. i will give my ratings after i played it


I'm a bit late to the party, but I played this game from start to finish and I absolutely loved it.

The combination of the good ol' DOOM brutality with a Metroidvania approach to gameplay and level design equals an amazing experience all around. I could see myself having a lot of fun replaying this one in the future, looking for all the secrets I missed and trying to beat it at higher difficulties.

The Icon of Sin level in particular was amazingly done. The atmosphere is so different from the rest of the game... loved it!

Overall, amazing work, Calavera Studio!

Great game, thank you! But what happened to the Cyber Demon?

i want to donate .. and buy it to add to my library collection .. there was any option ?

great game i loved the ending but i dont really like how if you die in it the boss´s phase goes back to the first one also if you do something like open internet explorer the game will still be running but there will be no tab and thhe only way to close it is task manager so yeah 9/10

hey there caleverastudios

i realy like this game but i cant play it beacuse it asks me for some kind of ms win runtime.dlll 

can you please tell me how to fix this problem beacuse i really want this game

thank you

(1 edit)

i want to report a glitch in the last lever before you enter the hell the last mars level argent tower the plasma gun the galuss cannon i cant use that gun help

really fun game to play but i recommed a controller or something because the keyboard control scheme is really hard to remeber and you end up dying alot because your pressing the wrong keys but other than that, amazing music and level design

You can always remap the keyboard buttons in the options menu.


best fangame doom ever


(Gameplay below buuuut first a mini review)

I really have to say, I wasn’t expecting such a game as this. I thought it would be overly difficult to play this and I wouldn’t have any fun but boy was I wrong.

The level design and the music is fantastic and fits well with DOOM as well as the graphics. Really well done game!


"God..." I can't believe I found this game while I was thinking about DOOM. To think I didn't download it long time ago! Where the "hell" was I then, in "limbo?" Any way this "bloody" game is super FUN and really addictive!

(However when I playing it and want to go to the start screen it say RESET and I don't know if it's means reseting the whole save file or if it's acsally just goes to the star screen.)

Thanks for the feedback! I'll see about changing that menu.


This was such a fun game to play. This should be an official title it's that good. This was one of the games that I played during the Albsterz Indie Hour. The soundtrack was awesome got the blood going


Do you mind releasing OST, because you guys made some bangers!

Of course! Its available right here on itch https://manuelsoruco.itch.io/minidoom-2-soundtrack

Ayyy, Doomguy bless you! 🙏🙏🙏

Hello, what's the location of the save files?
