Although John Romero has become one of the most celebrated designers of all time, he didn't just start with Doom or, for that matter, Wolfenstein 3D. Back when id was a small operation, Romero designed excellent top-down action games for the "Big Blue Disk" publisher Softdisk. This game, where you collect diamonds and power-ups while avoiding snakes, showcases Romero's knack for creating incredibly addictive games.
