DoomGLES Doom Port Released for the BlackBerry PlayBook

doomgles2 

Those of you who grew up with Doom (like me) will appreciate this one. Michaël Ryssen let us know that he has brought his popular DoomGLES hardware accelerated (OpenGLES) Doom port to the PlayBook. It has been optimized to play Doom on the PlayBook with all its glory. I am sort of curious to see if IDKFA works on this port. :)

Features include:

  • Playbook native resolution
  • Realtime dynamic lighting
  • Particles effects
  • 3D Monsters and objects
  • Blood projections
  • Realistic water effect

Keep in mind this game comes only with the Doom shareware game files. If you “own” Doom and/or Doom 2 you can copy your WAD file to the device and play the full game. You can read about that here. We also can look forward to DoomGLES coming to BlackBerry 10 which is nice. You can check out the trailer for DoomGLES below or simply pick it up in App World for $1.99.
