Doom Resurrection Coming to the iPhone App Store Next Week

Doom Resurrection for iPhone

Doom Resurrection, from iD Software “ the first full new title in the series since Doom III “ is coming to the iPhone App Store next week.

Here ‘s a little taster on the concept of the new game, from VentureBeat ‘s excellent post on it:

The plot of the game is similar to that of Doom 3, but it takes place in a different part of the space station than the Doom 3 story. You are the sole Marine survivor on a remote research facility on Mars where all hell has broken loose in the form of demons from hell. Hence, it ‘s a completely original game in that sense. Players can talk with scientist characters in the game. And they can use all of the same weapons and fight the same monsters as in Doom 3.

The game is said to boast ‘much better 3D graphics than most first-generation iPhone games ‘ and has eight full levels and about 5 hours of game play. 

The post at VentureBeat includes several quotes from iD Software ‘s John Carmack, who led the iD Software team that developed the game, and lots of great background on the whole development process for it.  Check it out HERE.

There ‘s also a very good trailer video for Doom Resurrection “ which you can see HERE.

Doom is one of the very few first person shooter games I ‘ve ever really gotten into “ back in the day, Doom and Quake were the two that just everyone I knew had played. At my very first tech support job in a support call center, there was always one particular team where around 30 guys were continuously playing network Doom “ ** while taking calls ** “ ah, the good old days. 

I ‘m not much of a fan of this type of game anymore, but the game really looks great on the trailer and even just for old times ‘ sake, I think I ‘ll be giving it a go. 🙂
