  • iPhone DOOMed (finally)

    iPhone DOOM has been in the works for over a year now with more or less success. For all of you that have been waiting for this for the last year it seems that the game is finally being refined into a more solid and playable version!

    Steven Troughton-Smith of iphonedoom and Zodttd of Zodttd.com have been collaborating over the last few weeks to push out a playable iPhone DOOM! While it isn't perfect yet this version has controls that are quite a bit more usable than the previous public versions and the game's performance is quite good. The main problems for me on this version are the occasional crash and some issues navigating a couple menus. I'm sure Zodttd and Steven will be working consistently in the coming weeks to sort out bugs and polish the app up a bit.

    The latest version is publically available via the Games section of Cydia for you to download. All you need to do is provide your own WAD files for Doom 1 or 2 and you'll be all good to go!

    (A WAD file is a game data file required for you to be able to play DOOM. While these are easily findable on Google do not post them on MMi as they are warez. Find them yourself.)

      All these FPS games are kinda lackluster in the control department right now. I don't think the people porting these things are serious players. If they were, they'd understand the fundamental need for strafing. Circle-strafing your target is a mainstay in these games, especially the id games.

      When I helped with PocketQuake for the pocketPC, I made a point of having Dan East make sure it was possible to circle strafe. In the end, I think PQ ended up being the best portable port to date, its as "playable" as metroid prime hunters is on the DS, which has a very good implementation of the "mouse+keyboard" style of play using the stylus. PQ uses the same methodology, and was out more than 5 years earlier

      Well, I've stayed at 1.1.1 because it's been reliable and I can run programs like VNC and all the emulators really well. (I can control my computer with my iphone's VNC from anywhere in the world which is a huge plus.) I am also hesitant to have to reinstall all of my applications again.

      But while I'm on the subject, I was wondering, can the 2.2 firmware run all of the emulators, like PSX, GBA, Gameboy, SNES, NES, Genesis?!?! Can I still download VNC? Is there anyway to upgrade without losing my applications? Thx a million for everyone's help!

      Oh I forgot to mention, I also really love orb, so if 2.2 supports that also, I would probably upgrade from the stone age...

      Are you referring to OrbLive TV? It was just released for 2.2 a couple weeks ago.
