The idea of running iconic 1993 first person shooter Doom on random electronic devices isn’t new, but California programmer Foone Turing got creative with it on Sunday: he got it playing on a pregnancy test. It looks pretty good on the 128×32 pixel monochrome display.

They had to replace the test’s original CPU and display, so it’s really only a shell. But it’s still an impressive feat — the game retains the original’s hypnotic movement and its iconic enemies are easy to make out.

A fan also brought it to the attention of John Romero, one of the original game’s programmers, who commented on one of Turing’s early efforts.  

“Definitely incredible!” he tweeted Saturday.
