Released on October 2nd on Mod DB and created by DeTwelve, The Legend of Doom is a total conversion mod that lets Doomguy don Link's stylish cap and explopre a faithful recreation of the very first Hyrule, complete with all its secrets and all 9 dungeons. Doomguy has the ability to collect and use all of the items and weapons Link used in his first adventure, such as various swords, a bow, a boomerang, and a candle to attack foes with powerful flames. Speaking of foes, all of the classic foes and bosses you know and love make an appearance. Moblins, wallmasters, and even those weird Pol's Voice rabbits who were meant to be slain with the Famicom controller's microphone all stand between Doomguy and Zelda.

With a bit more skill, you can even make things such as a recreation of Jerry's apartment from Seinfeld. Doom's ease of modding also makes it very easy to port to other platforms, including bizarre platforms not normally meant for video games.
