After rolling out his DoomGLES Doom port for the PlayBook Michaël Ryssen has moved on to porting the similar Heretic game to the PlayBook. This latest port is appropriately called HereticGLES and has you playing as one of the last Sidhe elves and should bring back some gaming nostalgia. Like DoomGLES, HereticGLES only includes the shareware (read demo) part of the game and you need to acquire your own “legal” copy of the heretic.wad game file to play the full game. You can read more about that here.
- BlackBerry® PlayBook™ native resolution
- Realtime dynamic lighting
- Particles effects
- 3D Monsters and objects (MD2)
- Blood projections
- Realistic water effect
- and much more
They are also working on adding PWAD support along with network support which should amp up the game. You can find HereticGLES in App World for $1.99. Let us know what you think!
