BORSCH (BETA) - Welcome to a DOOM like experience on your ZX Spectrum 128k

It was only just the other month that we showed you an eye opening Quake engine created by Alone Coder together with Dragons' Lord, that was running at an impressive speed on a standard ZX Spectrum 128k. Well fast forward to today and if you thought that was indeed impressive, then as of right now you can try out Vladimir Zubarev's (Dragons` Lord) latest Yandex Retro Games Battle entry of BORSCH. A beta version of a new game engine which aims to bring a Doom like experience to the ZX Spectrum 128k running at an impressive frame rate. 

While the text document provided with the beta, is entirely in Russian, this is what the website describes about the beta entered into the competition. "A young country lad grapples with the issues that have befallen his pig farm. Forced to identify infected piglets due to a mysterious outbreak of swine rabies, he also valiantly combats an invasion of flying chupacabras hungry for his well-fed livestock. Meanwhile a cunning Yeti roams nearby with its own devious plans. It's best to always stay alert!".
