A hacker in Australian has reportedly reconfigured an ATM to play the first-person shooter videogame Doom.

A YouTube user who goes by the name Aussie50 said he installed the 1993 game's software on an ATM and configured the buttons to work as controls. The newly configured system, which includes sound, seems to provide a fully functional videogame.

From clues glimpsed on the video, the ATM was Windows-based with plenty of power to run the older game. The video of the hack has gone viral among a certain technically minded corner of the Internet.
