Video: Developers Working to Port DOOM 3 to Android, Slowly

It may be nowhere close to completion, but it’s awesome to see a small group of developers working to bring ID Software’s DOOM 3 to Android. In the video, we definitely see the game boot up, but the lead developer says movement of the character is still yet to be implemented. Looks like there’s a way to go, folks. 

For anyone else that had troubles playing this game alone in the dark (I vaguely remember being frustrated by lighting issues), I am very excited to maybe see this get booted up on my Nexus 7 some day or another. Let’s go, devs!

    That’s pretty cool, but I’ll save my DOOM3 experience for my high-end gaming laptop. Id Software is re-releasing DOOM3 this October with updates graphics, lighting effects, and (I think) the “duct tape mod”. I come from the generation that played DOOM and DOOM2 over dial-up modem and I never looked more forward to a game release than DOOM3. I got to the point that I wouldn’t play DOOM3 when I was home alone as it terrified me. Which, of course, was the whole point. 🙂
    Good times.

    It’s actually “id” software and not “ID”. They are not called ID as in Identification, they are “id” as in Freud’s model of the human psyche, also known as the ego or super ego, and they don’t reference themselves as “ID”.

    dont really care about playing this on my smartphone screen versus my laptop or tv but I just wanted to chime in with my love for Doom 3. One of the best games I’ve ever played in my entire life

  • KleenDroid

    The DOS versions of Doom, Doom2 were my favorite games ever on my pc. Back when there was no internet and we would play Deathmatch modem to modem. I loved it…

    Things have really changed over the last 20 years.

    Should be ready for us in 2028

    The only way this would be remotely fun is if Sony released a new model of the Xpera Play. Touch screen controls are simply awful and nothing will ever fix that. Console/PC games of this style just do not belong on phones. This is why Nintendo and Sony still make handhelds, so gamers can enjoy full and rich console style experiences on the go. There is a huge reason why the most successful mobile games are casual games.

    • Benjamin Sicard

      If it comes to pass, this’ll be a great game for Ouya.

    • kixofmyg0t

      Or….you can use a SIXAXIS like I do.

  • nightscout13

    Ya the maps did not have enough lighting. And when characters would jump at you, couldn’t even see which direction they were coming from, because of the lack of lighting.

  • Rizzidy

    Who cares? This game is almost 10 years old.

    • Dr_Buttballs

      Maybe because some people happen to like this game.

    • kixofmyg0t

      So old games cant be good?? I enjoyed it back in the day, and ill enjoy it now.

      • I would rather play games that have full HD graphics, fully utilize the device being used, offer advanced and futuristic gameplay with a great storyline instead of some 10 year old once was game.

        • SeanBello

          you must have an awesome time carrying your xbox and lcd around on your back to play your full HD graphics games, considering a lot of console games released don’t have 1080p graphics or fully utilize their tech available.

          • Technically this game is still considered a PC game so do you have fun carrying around your desktop and lcd?

          • SeanBello

            technically you’re a fool. it clearly states it’s coming out as a mobile game, which you were clearly referring to by using the word “device” as “device” implies a phone.

          • Technically you’re the fool! Device or devices can imply any electronic device (TV, Laptop, Xbox, PS3, Phone, Tablet, etc are all considered devices). Yes this game is “coming soon” but it is still not released (for that it isn’t even done being ported) so it is still (for now) a PC game.

        • kixofmyg0t

          Every game will be old one day you know. Final Fantasy 7 is a great game. But it must be crap according to your criteria. Doom3 was a great game in its day. It pushed GPU’s hard at the time and I liked the story.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Who cares you say? Obviously you don’t and we do. There’s just far too many douches on this planet.

    • JeffDenver

      LOL! You dipshit.

  • George Davis

    Looks more like a shadow boxing simulator based on that video … or more accurately, 2 minutes of load screens followed by 20 seconds of shadow boxing. Cool idea though.

  • I honestly have no idea what this game is! lol All I know is its really really old because my uncle had a copy in his garage.

    • Really really old? Facepalm…

    • kixofmyg0t

      So…..you’re 9 years old at best? Do your parents know you’re on the internet right now?

      • I’m actually 17, but I don’t play a lot of video games. Mainly just the major MW3, Black ops and Call of Duty games on Xbox 360 and a few games here and there on my Mac.

        • kixofmyg0t

          You……just play Call Of Duty…..Xbox…..and Mac

          Dear god I cant handle the sheer amount of fail in you. You have ALOT to learn kid.

          • marcusmaximus04

            A lot is two words.

          • kixofmyg0t

            You’re right it is. Do I care? Nope. I dont care ALOT. One word. All caps. Caps.

          • I haven’t had a PC in like….5 years so I don’t do a lot of major gaming on my computer unless its something available on the Mac App store or on a torrent website 🙂 (sssshhhhh) lol I leave most of the heavy end gaming to my Xbox 360 (PS3s lack a lot of features the Xbox has) and I only play the major games that lots of my friends are playing because I would rather save the money or spend the money on something better than video games.

          • kixofmyg0t

            You’re a casual gamer. Nothing wrong with that. Seriously you’re missing out on ALOT(one word, not two) of great titles.

          • I don’t want to come off as some geek hater but I honestly have better thing to do. Between Collegiate HighSchool, Work, Soccer, Friends, Family, etc. I only have about 20-30 minutes of uninterrupted time a day to play games. Again, I’m not trying to be a geek hater here (I personally am one when it comes to school and tech) but I would rather go to the soccer field and practice or go out with some friends. P.S. I don’t want to hear a WORD bout my grammar or spelling!

          • kixofmyg0t

            Like I said, youre a casual gamer. That’s fine. Though I think its hilarious that you(or more likely your parents) spent so much money for a casual gamer. If all you play is Black Ops and MW3….its actually quite a stretch to call you a “casual” gamer truthfully. You might as well just save the money and just stop playing.

          • I would but its fun for the extremely hot summer months (like this one) when its too hot to do anything outside (I live in Florida and its amazingly hot here) and there isn’t much to do and when school starts back up I just don’t pay the Xbox Live Renewal fee. Its also helpful for those off weeks when I’m grounded and can’t leave the house except for school and work. but the main reason I even got the Xbox 360 and most of the games are from when I was younger and not as busy as I am now

        • Dr_Buttballs

          Seriously? You’re really missing out,kiddo.

    • ostensibly


  • I didn’t even want the PC port. That game was terrible. Just a bunch of running around in the dark with a bad flashlight waiting for monsters to jump out at you. 🙁

    • Diablo81588

      You were scared 😛

    • Dr_Buttballs

      Honestly, what were you expecting a Doom game to be like? Rainbows and ponies?

      • I dunno…I guess I expected them to be fun, like the first two.

  • EvanTheGamer

    This is pretty awesome. But considering it’s only in alpha state atm, I bet it’ll be quite sometime before DOOM 3 sees the light on the better side that is Android.

  • snowblind64

    Hell yeah!

  • Anthony_Armando

    oh snap. i think i just shat my pants.
