Doom Troopers (also called Mutant Chronicles: Doom Troopers) is a video game released in 1995 by Adrenalin Entertainment for the Super NES and Sega Genesis gaming systems. It is a platform shooter.

The player assumes the role of one of two commandos, Mitch Hunter and Max Steiner, fighting an evil horde of invading zombies and mutants. The game features eight different levels and a cooperative multiplayer mode for two players.

Air Hendrix of GamePro panned the Genesis version, criticizing the small selection of attacks, generally simplistic action, lack of color and detail, and unintentionally humorous death screams.[6]
