About the Series

The Catacomb computer game series pioneered the first-person shooter genre in the early 1990s. Before Doom and Wolfenstein, legendary game developers John Carmack and John Romero of id Software created Catacomb 3-D for Gamer's Edge magazine. The publisher, Softdisk, went on to develop three additional titles in the series using Catacomb 3-D's technology.

The series contains the following games:

  1. The Catacomb (2-D)
  2. Catacomb 3-D
  3. The Catacomb Abyss
  4. The Catacomb Armageddon
  5. The Catacomb Apocalypse
