Heretic was the first game to use the Doom engine outside of id. Produced by John Romero in cooperation of Raven Software, Heretic promises to be a great fantasy blastfest in a package! Fight off Gargoyles, Golems, Wraiths and Weredragons with your Dragonclaw, Phoenix rod, Hellstaff and Firemace! This game also introduces a new item system that's become a general must for most games, using with the familiar bracket keys. Items include Wings of Wrath, Polymorph Egg, Chaos Device, Disc of Repulsion, and everyone's favorite Tome of Power, that supercharges your weapons!

Another gameplay demo video recorded retro style with ZDoom LE (a ZDoom version for legacy machines) and GZDoom 1.3.17. Note that the game looks much better in OpenGL due to the palette conversion in software, also i used the 320x240 resolution in ZDoom. The mod runs fine on GZDoom 3.1.0 and Zandronum 2.1.2 and will be released later today.

I wonder why Heretic, Hexen, Blood & Shadow Warrior died... These 4 were AS GOOD as Doom, but only Doom survived... Give me a remake for any of them with same levels, remastered, modern graphics, extra episodes & some new content... THEN I'll be please to spend money on a video game. Series like Call of Duty are definitely not for me.
