id Software’s highly anticipated iPhone and iPod touch game, Doom Resurrection, is now available in the App Store. This isn’t just some old port, however, as Doom Resurrection was designed specifically for Apple’s unique platform.
Doom Resurrection is a first-person shooter set in the Doom universe. The story runs parallel with the original Doom, where you are the last surviving space marine from your unit who must protect Earth from an invasion of demonic creatures that have traveled through a dimensional rift on Mars.
This version of Doom is much unlike any other version that you have ever played before in that it is actually an on-rails shooter, which means that you won’t be controlling where your character goes. The team decided to go with this method of control because they felt it offered the most entertaining experience for their audience as a whole. We will have to wait and see if you hardcore Doom fans out there agree.
The shooting component of the game is where the action is. Doom Resurrection features an accelerometer controlled reticule, an on-screen shoot button, and an on-screen button for dodging incoming attacks. The game contains eight levels, four levels of difficulty, and even graphical assets that were originally designed for Doom 3, so it looks as good as you would expect.
Doom Resurrection is now available in the App Store for $9.99.
