Chex Quest is a 3D shooter based on the Doom (DOS) engine and given away with boxes of Chex cereal in 1996 (the first computer game to be released in such a way). Since it was a Doom conversion, the game had to be cleaned up an awful lot before it was sent out to children. Instead of shooting at demons, you shoot at aliens made of phlegm. Instead of a hardcore space marine, you're a giant piece of cereal. Instead of blood and bodies on the walls, you see Chex advertisements. You get the picture. Since the game is made for kids it's fairly easy, and the overall quality of the game isn't that great since it had to be completed in only five months. Still, it's one of the best and most complete total conversion of the Doom engine ever seen.

Music

Since only the first five levels of the game have been made there are only five music tracks for levels, and the additional introduction, intermission, and victory tunes. Each one is actually well composed. The cartoon sound fits perfectly to the cartoon nature of the game.

(Info)


Because Chex Quest is a DOOM conversion the music is in MUS format and can be ripped from the Chex.WAD in the same manner that the DOOM music is ripped. Actually, Chex Quest contains some of the original DOOM music that wasn't removed in the conversion process. The MUS files were recorded with Winamp's MIDI player v3.5.

The sound effects are in two formats, WAV for digital audio playback and DP for PC speaker playback. They are included in the rip.
