Remove Doom Game.
That’s not a trivial conversion, he would have had to figure out how to port the display routines to Flash (probably just rendered to BitmapData), handle input, etc. I personally think it’s pretty neat, although it’s mainly just a technical challenge.
However, the Doom source was GPL-licensed, so in theory he legally can’t distribute a derivative work (i.e. this game) without also having the source code to this available? Also, I believe only the source is GPL, not the data. So, I would believe that making money from this is probably illegal, or at the very least violates the GPL license…?
I would be curious to hear what id thinks of this sort of thing…
