Doom v0.5

Doom v0.5 is the last known alpha version of Doom. It was released to testers on May 22, 1993. It represents a significant advancement over previous alphas, with functional user interface elements and actual gameplay in the infancy of its implementation.

Version 0.5 included several levels, most of which were modified and used in the release version of Doom. Level 6 was held back for Doom II. Unlike the previous alpha versions, Doom 0.5 is open ended and unlinear; the player can transition between levels at will. This is also the last Doom version with Tom Hall aboard the development team, so these map versions are the most recent to reflect the vision laid out in the Doom Bible.
