A new version of the Doom Trilogy is available from R-Comp through !Store – priced at £14.99, or available in ‘My Software’ as a free update if you have already purchased. If you have an aversion to purchasing through !Store, ‘over the counter’ at Wakefield is also an option. There have been some small improvements to Doom, the main game in the pack, but the headline feature is the inclusion of an updated and enhanced copy of Wolfenstein 3D, thanks to work done by Jon Abbott and internal RCI staff.…

New edition of Doom Trilogy, with some added Wolfenstein 3D
No mention of eye of newt or toe of frog. Fans of first person shooters should have a soft spot for Doom from id Software.

That’s last year’s record for a long-delayed show report broken! This year’s Wakefield Show took place on 21st April, at the Cedar Court Hotel, organised by the local user group – the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC). Like last year, I must apologise for another long-delayed RISCOSitory show report.

HeXen II port released
First Heretic, then HeXen… now HeXen II, too. Ooh! With the release of the Hheretic and Hhexen ports, RISC OS users had the first two games in the Heretic/HeXen series, originally developed by Raven Software and published by id Software.
