Streaming Stroggs: Flash Quake

(Yes, I know there are, in fact, no Stroggs in Quake 1).

Flash: what can't it do? Well, it can't fix the wonky big toe I've got as a result of kicking a rock when I was 13, that's what it can't do. But it can run a remarkably smooth version of the original Quake in a browser. Mouse support, the constant bane of Flash games, is a little off - you have to hold down the left button to activate mouse-look, meaning firing happens with Control, but it works pretty well nonetheless. Quake's still surprisingly good-looking after all these years - or is that I've become so accustomed to brown games lately that The Forefather Of Brown now looks like part of the herd all over again?
