Doom: Resurrection Released

Hot on the heels of their recent acquisition by Zenimax Media, id Software has released a new Doom title, this time for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Doom: Resurrection is an all new adventure set within the Doom 3 universe. Scientists conducting experiments on Mars have lost control unleashing the minions of Hell, and as the last surviving Marine, you need to battle your way out of there. Sounds rather like pretty much every other Doom title ever released, but hell, Doom's fun so it's alright.

The game is set parallel to the story of Doom 3, and uses the same assets from the 2004 title. Keep in mind though that Doom: Resurrection is a rail shooter, and it features a new control scheme taylored to the iPhone and iPod Touch (which is rather a given).

For your viewing pleasure, the official trailer, pulled from the site of co-developer Escalation Studios, is found below.

The texture quality and lighting are rather low, but again this isn't a current gen console, so I'm rather intrigued, but since I don't own an iPhone or iPod Touch and don't plan on getting one I'll be missing out on this game.

If you happen to download it, please, comment and let me know what you think!
