Doom Everywhere...

16 years ago, when I first downloaded the demo for 3D fragfest Doom to my Fujitsu 386 DX PC, I thought it was the canine’s orbs.  This week I’ve been playing it in my web browser at, on an Android powered HTC Hero (on loan from Orange), on an iPhone and on a Mac.  Doom is the first person shooter that simply refuses to die.

And while I’m here getting all misty eyed about blasting cacodaemons, it’s worth noting that the latest incarnation isn’t the lovely looking but ludicrously unforgiving Doom 3 – but Doom Resurrection; a version of the revamped 3D shooter for the iPhone.

Sing along with me! “Ner ner, ner ner ner, ner ner ner, ner ner ner ner ner ner ner!”  Hmm.  Perhaps the original Doom theme doesn’t translate all that well to text…
