New Doom for iPhone

id Software and partner Escalation Studios are preparing a new Doom game built exclusively for the iPhone and iPod touch, according to id founder John Carmack. Called Doom Resurrection, the first-person shooter features original levels with art taken from id's Doom 3 for the PC. Players control general aim and movement by tilting, and fire weapons by tapping the screen. The game's story is set in parallel to Doom 3, and finds players attempting to halt Hell's invasion of Earth.

The release of Resurrection is due next month, at a price yet to be determined. id is meanwhile continuing to work on Doom Classic, a port of the original Doom from 1993. The game should also be released in July, and support iPhone 3.0's downloadable content technology. Like Wolfenstein 3D, open-source code will be made available for the creation of custom levels and modifications. Future iPhone games from id should include updates to Orcs & Elves and Doom RPG.
