Originally released way back in 1993 by a relatively unknown studio called id Software, the simple shooter game ‘DOOM’ then went on to set the gaming world on fire. It is the game that millions of gamers born in the 1980s – early 1990s grew up playing and is widely regarded as one of the pioneers in the FPS genre. It introduced several new (at the time) features such as 3D environments, networked multiplayer gameplay, and more. Over the years, it has spawned many sequels, expansions, and movie adaptations.

The DOOM series was one of the pioneers in the FPS genre, and now it is finally available for mobile devices

Now, to celebrate the 25th birthday of this classic game, renowned developer Bethesda has released official mobile ports of DOOM and its sequel DOOM II on Google Play and the App Store. They are currently available for $4.99 (Rs 345) each, and since both of them are premium releases, you don’t have to worry about ads or IAPs. Check out the mobile gameplay trailer for DOOM below:

So, as you can see, all the classic first-person shooting action that we know and love is still there, and since this release is for the 25th-anniversary, it will also include the 4th episode, ‘Thy Flesh Consumed’. Basically, it's the whole package, and you can grab it right now.

Next up, we’ve included another trailer below for you to check out, this time for DOOM II. Just like its predecessor, it features the full package with all the additional content. This means you will get to play the Master Levels – a series of 20 community-created stages – right on your phone. Not only that, but it also supports co-op and local multiplayer of up to 4 players as well, so you can enjoy the shooting with some friends.

Honestly, it’s somewhat shocking that Bethesda took that long to bring DOOM and DOOM II to the mobile platform, but now that the games are finally here, it's time to hop right into some classic FPS action to wreck some demons with your shotgun!
