It 'plays' Doom: iPhone Doom updated, more playable

Doom, the "Hello World" of the 21st century. Though not yet totally playable, the iPhone Doom project has been revived and updated and now the port even has controls (what'll they think of next?). While this may not seem that impressive when you compare the laundry list of seemingly crude devices that play Doom (including the iPod nano) with the sophisticated, powerful iPhone, it still warms our blackened hearts to ponder the iPhone's gaming possibilities.

If you want to get an idea of how iPhone Doom looks, hit up the video after the break. Even with an absence of sound and the strange touchscreen input, v0.1 is still a promising proof of concept. Rip and tear!
