The chances are that you’ve probably had to fill out at least one CAPTCHA test within the last week. Perhaps when logging into a website or before submitting a customer service email? The premise of them is rather simple. It’s a test to make sure you actually are a human being rather than a bot potentially looking to spam. Well, while the tests can often be infuriating or annoying, one developer has found a way to make them way more interesting. Namely, by injecting a bit of Doom into the mix!
The premise is actually quite simple. Taking the overall presentation of the original Doom game, along with some of its amazingly awesome music, in a little under 5 seconds, you have to successfully shoot 4 enemies that randomly appear. Of course, if the time runs out before you have, then it presumes you’re not a human, and you fail the test. Given that it can take anything up to a minute to complete some of the more pain in the backside standard CAPTCHA tests, though, all going well, this is a trend that’ll catch on!
We’ve copied in the link below and you should be able to try it for yourself.
Created by Miquel Camps Orteza, this is certainly a pretty cool way to spend 5 seconds of your day, and as above, all going well this little mini-game will eventually help replace the god awful CAPTCHA tests we currently have to take. It even includes a pretty amazing Easter Egg taken from the original game where you can bypass it entirely by entering ‘IDDQD’.
So, if you want to learn more, or maybe show its creator a little love, you can check out the official Doom CAPTCHA website via the link here!
