Goofs

In the game, enemies can hear fired shots, which attracts their attention. But there's a bug in the game so that enemies can hear any attack, including your character's (silent) punches. Also, the enemies cannot hear the idling chainsaw, but once you attack with it they will be alerted. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the end credits on the Sega 32X version, the game reverts to a fake DOS prompt from which the player cannot exit without shutting off the game. See more »

More memories...
17 February 2005 | by doom-mikeSee all my reviews

My first action packed experience on the PC. Back in '95, I had started my third year in elementary school, this game was well known to the gaming community here in Sweden. Haha I remember the first time I discussed cheat codes for the game with my classmates. Before Doom there was Wolfenstein 3D, but this game focused on an invasion by demons on a military base, placed on the moon Phobos.

Every single one of your comrades got killed, and alone you had to fight yourself through an army of former humans and of course the hideous packs of demons. The graphics were great at the time, and as young as I was, it gave me great pleasure of completing the shareware release. Knee Deep in the Dead was the first episode of three(fourth came later).

A+
