Play Doom On Your iPod

Two adventuresome coders, Benjamin Eriksson and Mattias Pierre, have released iDoom for the iPod. The port of the once popular first-person shooter runs off iPodlinux and you will on virtually all iPods (expect for the Video iPod).

September 23rd 2004 Edit0r came up with the idea of porting Doom to iPod. He started to port it, but stopped two months later realizing he didn't possess the knowledge in C to pull it off.

Aegray got nxDoom, a Doom port to microwindows, to compile in november 2004 and shortly after, a working but incredible slow and unscaled version for iPod Photo was released by wCars05.

Hyarion downloaded the source code to nxDoom and started to tinker with the drawing algoritms to make it go faster. Soon after he released the first revised verison of the nxDoom-port, it became obvious that it would be simpler and more efficient to start over from scratch using the original source code to Doom. A new port was started, this time together with Jobbe, and this time is was going to be good!

In order to run iDoom, you will have to download and install iPodLinux, in addition to the game in order for it to work. The authors warn that installing iPodLinux and iDoom will probably void your warranty, so users should careful when thinking about installing the game. This game is still a work in progress, so be sure to stay tuned to IMG for more updates regarding iDoom.
