Quick App: Doom Classic


Id Software has released the Godfather of all first person shooters, Doom Classic. [$6.99 - iTunes Link] The game has been ported nicely while including a completely new episode not found in the original along with a few other extras sprinkled in for your gaming pleasure.

  • Play the legendary first person shooter, DOOM, with an iPhone or iPod Touch. Fight through 36 missions in four action-packed episodes: Knee-Deep in the Dead, Shores of Hell, Inferno, and Thy Flesh Consumed.
  • Experience DOOM multiplayer on your mobile device, including Deathmatch and Cooperative play for up to four players via wireless internet.
  • Choose from three different control types and customize the interface to suit your style.
  • Explore the depths of Mars while utilizing the topdown map to help you explore and save your game on the fly.
  • Listen to the original soundtrack or disable it and use your own iPod music.

After spending some time with Doom Classic it's safe to say that FPS fans should enjoy this classic action.

Quick App: Doom Classic


Got it the other day. Very nice. Takes me back to the many hours I spent playing it on my old 486 33mhz Gateway back in 94. Nostalgia consumed;) interface is great.

jose? there is no free wolf3d, dont be lame and pirate, buy it ffs.
back on topic,
had it since the weekend, really takes me back, and plays really well (unlike duke3d which has horrid controls)
im hoping they add beter multiplayer in the future, not everyone has multiple iphones in one wifi at a time.
heres hoping doom 3 gets ported, and hexen and heretic w00t lol :)

I also cannot get anywhere on level one (Hangar). No doors open. Found what appears to be a switch next to the stairs but it doesn't do anything. How do you play this??? very frustrating. Used to love this game years ago.

Found out if you go to the options menu, turn "auto use" to on, and doors will open. Why it's set up like that, I couldn't tell you, but it works, and doors open.

OMG!! thanks dude! that helps so much. what the hell is up with that though. now i can play. i was seriously getting pissed off about that shit.

Thnx for the door-tip. Annoying default settings! There must be a way to 'manually' open doors right?
