doom

One of the most anticipated titles that we can remember, id Software's Doom Classic is now in the App Store. The game includes the original three episodes as well as Episode Four, They Flesh Consumed. Features include:

  • Fight through 36 missions in four action-packed episodes
  • Experience DOOM multiplayer on your mobile device, including Deathmatch and Cooperative play for up to four players via wireless internet
  • Choose from three different control types and customize the interface to suit your style

We'll post video and impressions shortly.

    Well, considering that Eliminate is only available in Canada for the moment, perhaps it's actually perfect timing...

    It's not id's timing, it's Apple's insane approval timing.
    Also on one note, the only bad thing I have to say about this app (ZOMG FLAME TIME), is that the online multiplayer is over LAN, not Wi-Fi. You have to be on the same router to play each other. Honestly, since it was taking this long, I was expecting full Wi-Fi multiplayer. Everyone else seems to be able to put full Wi-Fi MP into their apps. I hope this gets put into a future update, along with in-app purchases, still keeping LAN as an option, and Bluetooth Co-Op/Deathmatch would be a great addition, too, for say, car rides, or places where there is no internet (ie subways, airplanes if you have ipod touch, etc.)

      I'm not surprised at the lack of online multiplayer as the way DOOM handles networking isn't conducive to high lag (internet) environments. In fact, the Xbox Live version of DOOM suffered greatly for this. The game's network code just wasn't build for the internet.

    Yeah, i knew it. I knew it wasn't going to have true online. Oh, well. Not really into nastalgia, so I'll keep my 6.99. That's a steep price for a piece of nastalgia, by the way. Based simply upon modern merits, this game cannot possibly compete with Real Racing, Modern Combat, Dungeon Hunter, or several other premium games that are currently available on the appstore.

      Doom is still being played 17 years after its first release, and you really think it can't compete Real racing, Modern Combat or Dungeon Hunter? I guarantee you 17 years from now, Doom will still be played and those three won't even be a memory...

    Game is pretty cool, 6.99 seems like alot considering the controls seem fairly easy to make.... Not sure why this port was such a huge deal compared to others... Doom = Win though...

    Where is the full on Wi-Fi?? Maybe it will be DLC... but i needz Wi-Fi

    I have to say I am very disappointed that only local LAN multiplayer is available. The way multiplayer is described in the App information is very clever and misleading, as it merely states that you can play over "wireless internet". What is that exactly? 3G? Edge? Guess not..

    No Wi-fi multiplayer, no Doom 2 included..for $7 bucks. No thanks.

    what is it with Yanks? "hollowhine" more like it. You're not home for a commercial crap day the rest of the planet could care less about & your pocket protectors go into a spin? HTFU.
    Doom - yeah! What's a few bucks for a classic?? Download ON!

    • Imad Qamar

      Seriously man...

      I hope JC increases its price, like those Alchemize devs did, as a protest to all this "price-to-high" whining..

    i couldn't stand the graphics the day it was released, not going to pay 7 for the same thing now.

    .. and there goes the usual whining about the price. I bet if i'll search TA's total user comments.. 70% of them will be "$$ bucks? no way!".. "Too expensive. not interested".. which are very insightful and "to-the-topic" comments i must say.

    Appstore will never progress with this kinda attitude imho.

    • http://www.iphonelife.com/werner.ruotsalainen Menneisyys

      There surely will be major price drops - as has been the case with Wolf 3D, which only costs $2 now - but used to be much higher (IIRC, I paid $4 for it but it started at an even higher price point)

      • Imad Qamar

        Yes you're right; there will surely be a price drop in the future.. but if someone doesn't like the current price, why not sit tight and wait fr the price drop.. rather than coming here and posting useless comments like "it ain't worth $6"..."I'm not getting this"... "what a disappointment"..

      • Imad Qamar

        btw.. i also paid the launch price for Wolf... and I don't regret it one bit.

    • Alex

      Seeing how Carmack and other developers browse the site and forum, how are those comments not useful? If I was a developer I'd want to know if people weren't buying my product because of the price. Reading feedback on sites like this is definitely a lot easier than trying to do guess work with sales figures and price points.

    OMG its out!, $7 is quite reasonable if you ask me, I would have paid 20 for it, but maybe thats because to this day i still play it on my PC, i love it that much, mark me down for doom2 in app purchase too.
