The original classic Doom game was launched in 1993 and was considered one of the titles which brought first-person shooting games to its popularity as we know today. As a matter of fact, Doom was so famous during its time that most gamers used the term “Doom-shooter” instead of “first-person shooter”.
While the classic Doom doesn’t have the stunning visuals of the now renowned Doom Eternal, many still enjoy the game. Some Doom fans even made it playable on bizarre objects. Recently, a Twitter user shared his masterpiece of putting Doom is possibly the most peculiar playable device.
The classic Doom game utilized odd sources for its sound effects and other features. With this in mind, it is fitting that fans of the game are utilizing unorthodox ways to play it. There have been versions of the game installed on an ATM but only a few would have imagined playing Doom on a pregnancy test. Nevertheless, Foone – a Twitter user – has successfully done this despite the game looking a little bit different.
The pregnancy test was utilized as a screen that shows the game in white pixels which managed to recreate Doom’s geography. While this version lacks the original graphics, it is simply jaw-dropping to know that Doom can be played this way.
The pregnancy test only acts as a screen and a keyboard is still needed to enter an action but this is still considered a huge success because of the technical limitations of a pregnancy test kit. It is uncertain how much time the developer took to achieve this but fans don’t mind since they are totally entertained.
I tried zooming in and turning up the in-game gamma a bit, so you can see what's going on slightly better.

It is worth noting that Foone regularly messes around with technology and provides them with new purposes and this is his brand as a content creator. With this in mind, the Doom pregnancy test might be one of his best achievements yet.
This incredible achievement came after fans insisted on making Doom playable inside Minecraft and even through other peculiar means. Given the amount of experimentation needed to continue this trend of playing games in strange ways, it will certainly be entertaining to see what comes next.
