The iPhone Now Officially Runs Doom

Gizmodo writes: "Id's classic shooter has finally been (officially) ported to the iPhone. And thanks to oversight from John Carmack himself, there are a number of improvements that make it worth a purchase even for Jailbreakers.

In a blog post from May, Carmack says he loves that players port Doom to every device imaginable, but he's disappointed that there's rarely any real effort to build a new, functional control scheme on platforms without a keyboard and mouse. In other words, he'd rather that instead of everyone stopping at "Does it run Doom?" they ask "Does it play Doom?"

That's why he personally developed the controls for the iPhone version, and according to early reviews, the iPhone can now play Doom. Users are saying controls as good as you would expect from Carmack. Not to mention the other enhancements like 24-bit lighting."

The story is too old to be commented.

I would love to see the older Doom titles hit the PSP.

For the iPhone, especially if it's going to be cheap.

controls take some getting used to tbh, think i preffered the wolfenstein 3d classic controls but mayb i'll grow to like these ones.

getting rid of the tilt to turn was upsetting for me but I have gotten use to it now. I like how the controls move with your thumb though so that's cool. It seems to move fast but you do get use to it... and to have DOOM on my phone is awesome to say the least ^^
