Got a Twitch You Just Can't Scratch?

Got a Twitch You Just Can't Scratch? Do you ever feel paranoid, like there might be aliens and monsters lurking around every corner? Or are you just looking for some target practice? Either way, you're in luck: a shareware version of the unbearably popular DOOM I has been released for the Macintosh by id Software, Inc. Though you need a 68040-based Mac or better to play it, this version comes fully-featured, handles multi-player games, and is generally guaranteed to aggravate any hand or wrist problems you might have.

"But wait," you're saying, "why play a game that started on the PC when there's Marathon, an appropriately blood-soaked, shoot-em-up game born on the Macintosh?" Well, you're in luck too: a demo of Marathon 2 is available online as well. These games are massive - DOOM I is about 3 MB, and the demo of Marathon 2 is a whopping 15 MB - so be prepared to spend some time downloading them. Also check the ReadMe files for system requirements and instructions. Before you ask, no, DOOM II is only available commercially. [GD]
