Commodore Amiga Gets New FPS 'Did It Come From The Desert?'

Did-It-Come-From-The-Desert-Amiga-Gloom-ModInspired by Cinemaware's upcoming release of the long lost Mega Drive version of It Came From The Desert, one Amiga fan has decided to recreate the ant blasting action in a first person shooter for the Commodore computer. Available as a free download, Did It Come From The Desert is one action packed 3D adventure Amiga gamers don't want to miss.

Using the impressive title Gloom as a starting point, Amiga gamer nittamituaki has edited the game's core and replaced the many environments and enemies to match that of its inspiration. Now featuring crawling ants and anthropomorphic bugs, it's up to you to dodge around the 18 new levels and get shooting.

In order to enjoy this modification, you'll need to have access to the Amiga game Gloom Deluxe. There are various methods to booting the modification, by either writing the files to two blank floppy disks, or by modifying Gloom Deluxe installation files on your Amiga Hard Drive. Both methods are detailed within the modification's instructions.
