Play Doom on your Raspberry Pi

What you will need:
- Raspberry Pi 3, Pi 3B+ (Recommendation: Raspberry Pi 4)
- Raspbian Jessie installed and ready to use
- Any USB game controller
- Any Display

Several versions of the Doom source code are available.

Chocolate Doom is compatible with the majority of WADs therefore I use it.
