DOOM Resurrection

DOOM Resurrection

This is not DOOM classic. This one uses assets from¬†DOOM 3, uses tilt-to-aim, and yes…it is on rails. Wait! Before you scoff and move on, it’s actually pretty fun.¬†Wolfenstein 3D used FPS controls, and it worked okay, but this implementation frees up the player, and the hero, to do what he does best, trigger massive spouts of blood! The game also includes a common feature of arcade gun games, the duck-n-cover mechanic. Some monsters toss fireballs and the player must either quickly dodge the attack, which requires good timing, or duck behind a crate, which is a safer bet, but takes you out of the action. There are a variety of other mechanics, such as needing to shake the iPhone after the big zombie grabs you. There are plenty of story hits, but they don’t look that great, nor are they very interesting, in my opinion. I’m a big story guy, typically, but with this presentation and content, I would really rather just rip faces off.
