    Play DOOM for PlayBook and defeat Hell demons on Mars' Moon



    The classic PC game DOOM has been ported over to play on your BlackBerry PlayBook. The game is known in App World as PlayDOOM, which is a port for the PlayBook based on Mike Welsh's flash version. Only the embedded shareware episode is playable. There are a few bugs, but overall it runs pretty smooth.

    DOOM is a landmark first-person shooter video game by id Software. It is widely recognized for having popularized the first person shooter genre, pioneering immersive 3D graphics, networked multiplayer gaming, and support for customized additions and modifications via packaged files in a data archive known as "WADs". Its graphic and interactive violence, as well as its Satanic imagery, also made it the subject of considerable controversy. In Doom, players assume the role of a space marine who must fight his way through a military base on Mars' moon, Phobos, that has been overrun with demons from Hell.

    Are you a DOOM fan? Let us know how the game works for you!

    PlayDoom, a Doom port for BlackBerry® PlayBook™, based on Mike Welsh's flash version. It features some basic multitouch controls and (obviously) great framerates. Now the full version of Doom (if you own it) is also playable!

    PlayDoom has been updated to v1.0.9. See changelog details below...

    UPDATE: 1.0.9
    -A major control issue eliminated, no more erratic behaviour while looking around. In the next updates I plan to solve the remaining issues and I'm also working on a completely new control method.
    -I've made improvements to the help menu, it should be more useful in explaining the controls.

    UPDATE: 1.0.8
    -Sideloading the data file (wad) of the full retail version of Doom now works, look for instructions in the help menu!
    -Improved controls (still not perfect, but better than the last version - at least no stuck buttons anymore).

    SAVING NOW WORKS!
    With the 1.0.6 PlayBook update, the game saves correctly. Make sure you update your PlayBook as the next version of PlayDoom will only support the 1.0.6 version of the system software.

    UPDATE: 1.0.3
    A small update released, witch should make the game controls slightly more usable. I've also revamped the help screen, so it's more informative.

    Known problems that will be fixed eventually, sorted by priority:
    High priority:
    -Control and multitouch issues (I believe I've found the cause of the issues and I'm working on it)
    -Better GPU utilization, maybe some texture filtering options.

    Low priority:
    -No music. I loved the music too, but the other issues are more pressing at the moment.
    -Very minor sound stuttering

    Just a note: I saw some people wondering about it, so I'll make it clear: this port will always remain free.

    I will take a look at this game, but on another note does anyone know if work is being done to bring "Wolfenstien" to the PB?
