FooM is a fan-made text adventure based on Doom. It was created in 1995 by Piers Johnson in the TADS authoring system, and subsequently published in the Interactive Fiction Archive ( on July 5, 1996.

It also mimics Doom's mechanics, e.g. requiring the player to shoot monsters and keep track of his health level.
