Doom II: Hell on Earth is the sequel to the first-person shooter, Doom (DOS). It adds new monsters, 32 new levels, a new gun, and a new soundtrack. The demons of Hell have left their realm and pushed their way onto Earth. The carnage is terrible and, as the only person with any experience fighting them, it's up to you to stop Hell's onslaught. Pick up that BFG-9000 one more time, there are demons to fry.

Fighting a pain elemental with a pistol is ill-advised.

Music

Bobby Prince reprised his role as composer and created a soundtrack on par with previous game. There are lots of metal tunes (with hooks borrowed from contemporary artists) and dark ambiance tracks for the more frightening levels.

Tracks beginning with a 1 are recoded using General MIDI, those beginning with a 2 were recorded using AdLib.

(Info)


The MUS music and WAV and DP sound effects of Doom II were ripped from the Doom2.wad using Extensible WAD Editor and recorded using the default MIDI plugin from Winamp 5. The rip also contains some of Bobby Prince's reworked MIDI files from the archive he made available on his site. They are very similar to the final music released with the game.

A VGZ rip should be made. This is currently a work in progress by Doommaster1994.
