DoomGLES Gives Us the DOOM Experience We Have Been Looking For

If you’re looking for a more intense gaming experience than what Angry Birds can give you, DOOM should handle the job quite nicely. After trying a few ports that are available, none compare to that of DoomGLES. With added 3D effects, visuals and warmer lighing, this is by far the best port available for Android. For the small price of $2, it’s worth it. After speaking with the developer, he has future plans of making the game even better, so if you’re a huge DOOM fan, go check it out.

  • Thanks =)

  • artsr2002

    Someone bring back Commander Keen!!!!! LOL

  • gtosmw

    does not work on droid X

  • Pat

    What if it takes more than 15 minutes to download the data? Return policy?

  • Balls

    i still have doom2 on floppy disks

  • Hohlraum

    Buy it fast because it’ll be going away soon if it isn’t licensed from Id.

  • Bunie

    Isnt this app illegal? the Doom Engine is open source and free, as well as the games data. Make it free and open source :S

    • Just because source code is open and freely available, doesn’t mean that source code works without effort on your device. Even without the extra features that this variant of Doom appears to offer (OpenGLES 3D rendering, etc.), this developer has the right to ask for compensation for building the code for your device and making it playable with a front-end that presumably works well on a touchscreen. If you don’t agree with that, then there’s nothing stopping you from building it and putting it on the market for free yourself.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Sweet…will have to check it out.

  • My old school tastes go back to Galaga. Where is it?

    • Noyfb

      No doubt, I had to buy a namco anniversary edition for the ps2 back in the day, that had galaga on it, i dumped a lot of coin in galaga in the 80’s and 90’s. My local pub has one there luckily. The varians of galaga in the market suck. 
      I would love the original wolfenstein too

  • Shaunwin

    All I want to know is, does IDKFA and IDDQD work?

    • moelsen8

      wow i did a double take when i read this.  i haven’t thought about those in years, but they instantly conjoured up memories of playing this for hours.  crazy.  what was the big long one..?

  • Thank God they added the reticle to FPSs.

    • wastry

      It’s pretty obvious you’ve never played DOOM; would you kindly STFU

  • Jared

    Check out the shiny lava.

    I’ve been playing Doom for 18 years. I suppose I’m semi-conservative in that I don’t care much for the new effects other than higher resolution. This port looks awful. The 3d models of enemies look like they came from 1996 — why update the graphics 3 years? And they’re just not right. Do yourself a favor and get a proper Doom port.

    • You can actually disable all of the added features and play a plain port. 🙂

  • moelsen8

    is this “official”?  i mean do we have to worry about it being pulled?????

    edit: oh, you need to already have the game files. time to go digging and/or googling..

    • Jared

      Doom is open source. It’s legitimate.

      • moelsen8

        well i remember being able to download all kinds of crazy levels back in the doom2 days.  but are you saying the original games are completely free now?

        • Jared

          No, the Doom source code is open and free but the content (levels) are not. This port includes a different version of the levels called Freedoom that’s similar but not the same.

          • moelsen8

            yeah i just looked up all that.  only the levels that were created for the commercial games are off limits.  i didn’t know doom still had such a following.  crazy.  i may have to pick this up.

      • DeathfireD

        There was actually two other Doom apps when the OG Droid first came out which required you to have the levels already or search for the files on Google. Both apps still got pulled from the Android Market even though they where free.

        • moelsen8

          yeah, i saw that happen to one, tis why i asked

  • Cchoncek

    Sweet. Now all i need to satisfy my old school FPS itch is “Rise of the Triad”. Anyone remember this one?

    • Bionicman

      wow i loved ROTT. i still remember the old dial up networking days where i could dial into my cousins computer and we would play multiplayer on a 33.6 modem baby!

      Ok, not on Android, but there ya go.

      • Cchoncek

        Oh wow. That is fantastic! Thanks.

    • wastry

      Yup; I always found it funny how the pedestals with the keys were indestructable, until you grabbed the key, and then they shattered into splinters

    • Ryan

       had heat seeking missles didn’t it? that or marathon2 did, can’t remember, but I loved them.

      • kixofmyg0t

        Had “meat seeking missles” if memory serves me right.
