DoomGLES is the latest Doom port with optimized graphics and Xperia Play support [Video]

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.

Check out the gameplay trailer and download links after the break.

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.
