I can't for the life of me ever remember playing a VCS, which feels weird writing since I've been playing video games for 34 years. I guess I'm one of those new-age NES brats that grew up with all the comforts of 8-bit graphics.

More info from the DoomWorld forum:The Doom RPG is a game developed for cellphones set in the Doom universe. The game was developed by Fountainhead Entertainment & id Software. It was released for Symbian OS and Java based cellphones at the same time as the Doom movie in October 2005.
This is what John Carmack was up to after Doom 3 and after he started wearing a cellphone on him. It's a turn-based dungeon crawler with the RPG elements set to "easy mode"... as in that you don't have to manage your gear or set your player stats manually. A native PC port, reverse engineered by Erick194 was recently released that allows us to experience it without tinkering.
As we promised, the Doom RPG port for PC is finally here. created using SDL2 and BREW version doomrpg.mod original file reverse engineering.
This is my first port made for PC and I hope this works for you too.
Special thanks goes to @Anarkavre as thanks to him we got the original Brew game files.
You need to get the original files to be converted into a friendly format for the port, you can get them from Archive.org, you can search "Doom RPG BREW" on SOFTWARE menu.
Run the BarToZip program to convert the file doomrpg.bar into a DoomRPG.zip, then you run the DoomRPG.exe
Hope you enjoy it, best regards.
