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.

This game is absolutely brilliant. One of the best homages to the DOOM franchise by far.

Also, I made a review in spanish about this game: https://retroorama.blogspot.com/2018/04/mini-doom-2-la-secuela-merecida-de-un.ht...

best platformer for pc

Sadly that there no netplay or hotseat co-op/deathmatch

Awesome level design that we know from Doom, you´ve  created  awesome!

Just played the first level -- so far, this game is great!

Please, export for Linux too.

Looks like it runs in Wine -- just tried it, and it seems to work very well (i.e. good framerate, responsive).  Running Wine wine-3.13 on Arch Linux on a HP Envy m6, Core i5 2.6 GHz (4 cores), 8 GB RAM

Good game.

Loved this game so much, i thought I'd spread the word on this studio's other game. Not MiniDoom 1, but Killumination. You can play the game in the link below. Keep up the good work guys. Look forward to more.

Killumination Game

The Abyss is just one boss fight after another boss fight after another boss fight. I hate everyone.

So many technical difficulties today (on my end), but I did make the spider boss look like my b***ch 3 times. For the most part.

Won't run, gives win32 error about missing directx component (win7 x86 sp1). W

My quest continues...

This series has become a quest now, a bloody hard quest.

I'm just now looking at the screenshots on this page. How the hell do I get to the Wolfenstein, Megaman and Metroid(?) levels! Plus, there are angry looking Mario things on the overworld.  

Just completed central Processing loving the game so far here it is awesome game Guys :)

Just finished the game on Normal difficulty. Can't imagine what "Nightmare" would be like. All in all, 9/10. NEEDS. MORE. LEVELS!

I can't believe I beat this past level. This game is crazy hard but I refuse to lose.

Ive just installed all the missing dll but when i start up the game nothing happens.

Try deleting all the data and install again.

dll's are missing again


Awesome Job on this loved the game play and the music. The boss battles are challenging and the side scrolling / plat-former take on DOOM is awesome. my play-through PT 1.

True to the original! Really nostalgic.

Really enjoyed playing this the other day. Great stuff and had all the elements I loved about platformers. Plus, it's DOOM How can one not like Doom.

This was a very good game, I enjoyed it. Are there going to be more levels?

I have succeeded in passing two more levels. Video me. And beer me. In that order.

There is no way im just stopping with this. ;P

please make it work with PS4 controller? :)

This is just as hardAWESOMEfrustratingAMAZING as the 1st one. Hopefully I can finish this one. M

ight have to try easy mode.

WOW...just WOW...

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 =(
