DOOM RPG Coming To Your Mobile Phone

“DOOM RPG” has been created by id Software specifically for mobile phones, and is based on the popular first person shooter game originally launched in 1994. “DOOM” and its sequels are among the most popular PC games ever, with millions of copies sold. “DOOM RPG” preserves the look, feel and excitement of the original “DOOM” game, while integrating a tactical, turn-based combat system for easy to learn one-handed gaming.

“‘DOOM’ is a legendary gaming franchise. By designing a new version of this classic specifically for mobile phones, John Carmack and the team at id Software have established a new and exciting milestone for mobile gaming,” said Mitch Lasky, Chairman and CEO of JAMDAT Mobile Inc. “We are thrilled to work with the brilliant team at id to be the first to bring this amazing title to mobile gamers everywhere.”

“With the blockbuster success of ‘DOOM 3’ for the PC and Xbox, as well as the anticipation for the upcoming movie, we have been eager to create a ‘DOOM’ game that is designed and tailored specifically for today’s mobile phones,” said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. “By tapping the expertise and extensive publishing and distribution resources of mobile industry leader JAMDAT, we’re able to bring this fun and addictive new DOOM RPG experience to mobile game fans around the world.”

Developed by id Software in coordination with Fountainhead Entertainment, “DOOM RPG” is a brand new take on one of the world’s most popular gaming franchises. Crafted specifically for mobile phones, “DOOM RPG” delivers players to a secretive Martian research facility to solve the mystery of a massive demonic invasion. Utilize classic “DOOM” weapons, intuitive one-handed controls and turn-based gameplay to battle hordes of invading demons, including favorites like the Pinky Demon and Imp. “DOOM RPG” will captivate die-hard fans looking for a little bit of Hell on the go while introducing a whole new generation to the classic that started the first-person gaming revolution.

Under the terms of the agreement, JAMDAT will also publish a second id Software game for wireless.  Game availability depends on individual phone model and wireless carrier.

Riley Testut, the developer behind the Delta emulator and AltStore, shared his discovery of iOS 16 natively supporting the Nintendo Switch Pro and Joy-Con controllers, although they show up as a single device. He reported that "they work perfectly with Delta," which emulates games from SNES, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance.
