    In early 2009 Vladimir Silva released a port of Doom for the G1. It used the PrBoom engine and supported use of the hardware keyboard that the G1 had. As we all know, many devices coming out now do not have a hardware keyboard. So, I've taken that code and added in on-screen multitouch controls so more people can enjoy playing the game once again.

    It's been a while since I released Doom for Adroid (FREE), which was later removed from the android market. That was my fault for allowing the game to be able to download the original .WAD files. Since I now own a Nexus One, I wanted to play Doom again, but without a hardware keyboard that was going to be a bit difficult. I've been hard at work rectifying this issue and I am pleased to offer up a beta to all of my fellow androidforums.com users.
