Play DOOM II solo, with two people over a modem, or with up to four players over a LAN (supporting IPX protocol). No matter which way you choose, get ready for adrenaline-pumping, action-packed excitement that's sure to give your heart a real workout.

Ancient Aliens has been tested in ZDoom, Eternity, PrBoom-plus 18.104.22.168 (complevel 9) and Zandronum. The maps have been balanced for pistol starts but continuous should be fine if that's your preference.
ZDoom and Eternity provide story screens and menu-selected episodes. Additionally, Ancient Aliens uses ACS to play sound effects occasionally in ports that support ACS such as ZDoom and Eternity. Using ZDoom or Eternity is highly recommended.
Gameplay mods should work if they use .png graphics. If the mod contains a custom palette, you will need to adjust load order so that the Ancient Aliens palette is used. You'll know something is wrong if all the textures look garbled.
