Mobile users who are fans of nostalgic gaming are sure to love Original Doom, which is a port of the classic game from the early nineties. The game is completely playable through an Android device using the touchscreen interface, and everything about the original game has been brought back for this app.

There isn't much to this app beyond the game file and an engine to run it. Since this is the case, that means only the original episode of Doom is available to play. It is possible for players to access everything from Doom and its sequel, but those files would have to be moved onto the Android device and properly installed with the other files.

Those who were fans of the original game will be pleased with this version since it is identical to the legendary game that first paved the way for other first person shooters. The graphics have not been tampered with one bit, but the controls have been ported to the touchscreen very well. Not only that, but players can switch weapons easily using the volume buttons on the phone. This helps make it easier to switch weapons on the fly.

As video games continue to become more and more realistic, gamers are starting to itch for a taste of the nostalgic games they played when video games first started gaining popularity. Those old games will never go out of style, and many players continue to enjoy these games as they are ported onto new systems. With the prevalence of smartphones, it is no wonder that this classic game was brought back.

Pros

  • Exactly like the original Doom
  • Seamless touchscreen controls

Cons

  • Only includes the first episode of Doom
  • Game saves sometimes don't work
