CDoom is a set of four Doom source ports for DOS by Carlos Guariglia. Version 1.9 is a clone of doom2.exe, version 2.05 is based upon MBF, and version 2.06 addresses sound bugs, but is only in French. Version 2.07, the latest version, introduced slopes and destructible geometry. All releases are compiled with DJGPP and should be played under DOS or with DOSBox, due to sound problems running under recent 32-bit versions of Microsoft Windows.
