In honor of QuakeCon this weekend, Id Software has significantly dropped the prices of both Doom Resurrection [App Store] (Originally $9.99, now $2.99) and Wolfenstein 3D Classic [App Store] (Originally $2.99, now 99¢). If you were holding back on getting either games, now is the time to buy as the sale will only run until QuakeCon is over on the 16th.
Doom Resurrection utilizes Doom 3 assets to create a game with visuals that hold their own even when compared to the graphical giants of the App Store like Real Racing. Not quite a traditional first person shooter, Doom Resurrection is on rails and is controlled using the accelerometer to move a targeting reticule around the screen. In our review, we found Doom Resurrection to be "pretty awesome" and at this price hopefully some of the rails naysayers will take the leap of faith and give the game a try.
Wolfenstein 3D, first released in 1992, is the game that popularized the first shooter person genre. In the iPhone version, all six original episodes are included with 60 total levels and four different control layouts. The controls in the iPhone Wolfenstein 3D are generally regarded on our forums to be among the best for first person shooters, so if nothing else the game is worth checking out to see John Carmack's idea of how games like this should be controlled with the limited input methods available on the iPhone.
