Gloom is a Multi-player Total Conversion for Quake2 by Team Reaction.

The goal is to exterminate the other team. To do this, you must eliminate all the opposing players and all of their spawn spots, so they cannot respawn. When a side is totally eliminated, the other team wins. For humans, they spawn from teleporters. Aliens spawn from eggs, which regrow after an alien emerges. Each side has one class which can build new spawns, create defenses and possibly repair friendly units. This class is the engineer for the humans and the Breeder for the aliens.

A game released towards the end of the Amiga's life, when Doom was the be-all and end-all of the computer world. Gloom was a cheap rip-off: the entire map was on one level, your weapons had infinite ammo and were all plasma guns, but It Was Doom: But On The Amiga! With marines who fired red balls of light at you, ghosts who could, terrifyingly, walk through walls, the raptors who moved faster than you and shredded you as soon as look at you, and Denzil The Dark Denizen Of Hell Himself, suddenly getting a PC wasn't so important any more.
