Doom fans have a new port to play with in the Play Store. The developer says this one is the “best looking Doom port on mobile devices” What makes DoomGLES so special is it’s ported to OpenGL so it’s graphically improved with real time dynamic lighting, blood projections, particle effects, realistic water effects, and 3D monsters. DoomGLES is optimized for high resolutions, including tablets, and if you happen to be a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play owner, you will also love to know that it’s optimized for your gamepad.
Since this is just an emulator, you have to provide the wad files from the full PC title files. Upon installation you do get to download the original freeware version, but in order to play other titles in the franchise, you will need those wad files. Wad files contain all the elements for the game like maps, icons, and graphics used. If you own Ultimate Doom 1 or Doom 2, all you need to do is save those wad files to your SD card. Now if you don’t own the PC versions, lets just say you can probably find them with a quick Google search, but you didn’t hear that from me. DoomGLES costs $2.14.
