The gameplay by modern standards is very simple. Aim the gun at what you want to shoot and shoot. Enemy AI isn't at all intelligent, so demon heads and robot spiders and all of Hell's minions will generally just charge at the player or shoot whatever weapon they have from an often annoying perch.
The game is broken up into several acts, each of which contain several stories. The acts are generally just a change of scenery, showing how Doomguy is progressing across Mars and into Hell. The levels are just huge, entirely explorable levels filled with long halls, platforms raised with buttons, and keycards. Also, lots of darkness. Basically, the player will have to search through and backtrack through each level hunting down the keycard to allow him access to continue progressing.
Doom is and always will be a PC game, though its been ported to several platforms since. It's also spawned a number of sequels and even a major Hollywood movie. Don't watch that though. Just play the game.
