Chris Mooney, editor-in-chief of, said: “People have been enjoying our web games channel on for five years now, so it’s great to hand something back to the people that create these brilliant time-wasters. And Flash Doom is a worthy winner. While it’s not a traditional “made-for-the-web” original, it’s a labour of love and anything that takes us back to the halcyon years of 1993 can only be a good thing right now. Although I was a bit annoyed Mini Golf didn’t come higher.”

Simon Munk, FHM magazine’s gaming correspondent, added: “Doom as a flash game? Quite how the national IT infrastructure hasn’t ground to a halt yet, I’m not sure. One of my favourite first-person shooters ever makes a welcome return. Proof that free web games be as much fun as you pay £45 for. If not better.”
