Thanks to fans, the weirdest official Doom game is now playable on Windows

Quick Summary AI Powered

A surprisingly fun turn-based game made by id Software for a pre-iPhone world.

On Wednesday, the group released a Windows port of the game based on their work on the original game's BREW version (a Qualcomm-developed API meant for its wave of mobile phones from 2001 and beyond).

That's a shame, because it was a phenomenal example of id once again proving itself a master of technically impressive gaming on a power-limited platform.
