Doom: The Golden Souls 2 Portable ( April Fools wad )

Golden Souls 2 is a big deal, but not everybody is gonna be able to enjoy it without an expensive GZDOOM Entertainment System,
this is why i've decided to port the game to the GzDoom Portable handheld device.
It was a challenge because there were alot of limitations due to the 8 bit architecture of the console, instead of the usual 16 bit offered by regular GZDOOM, but i managed to pull it off, so, here it is, Golden Souls 2 Portable!
(Please remember to put batteries in your console!)

You can't because the Psp doesn't support the gzdoom portable wad cartidges, you might be able to extract the rom from the wad and run it through a GZDportable emulator

Could've saved over two meg of size by using the .gbs version of those songs instead of .ogg.

You should have desaturated it a bit more to make it fit better into the aged 80's base :)

That was absolutely beautifully crafted. I loved every moment of it. Perhaps it might be extended upon?

Probably the best thing about this, above the carefully crafted array of grey textures and downmixed sounds and the widescreen defeater that mutes some, but not all, status bar elements (especially in the automap), is that the fist is OP. WANT MOAR
