Doom comes to the N900

2 February 2010Entry by

The Popular first person shooter Doom explodes its way onto the N900!

Doom is back in the form of prBoom for maemo 5, crossing over from its linux and windows based beginnings and into our palms. The game keeps all of its original graphics and enemies, and is fully customizable through several menus accessed using the backspace key, in which the player can change controls as they wish.

The status bar is also fully customizable, the player can select when to be warned of low health and even how the enemies AI behaves.

The controls are simple the directional keypad controls the player, shift and the z key strafe left and right, the numbers change weapon, the blue arrow key shoots and the space bar is action. All the original difficulty settings are selectable from “im too young to die”, all the way through to “nightmare”. Overall not a bad addition to the N900’s now growing library of games, although there is one annoyance, prBoom was made using the original id shareware version of the game which only includes the first third of the game “knee deep in the dead”, however don’t let this put you off as the game is free to download from the N900’s app manager so its not bad for free.
