Playing the original Doom on a MacBook Pro isn't impressive in and of itself, but squeezing those monstrous pixels onto the 2170 x 60 resolution Touch Bar is a notable accomplishment (even if the bar is basically a thin, elongated Apple Watch). Bell showed off his handiwork in a YouTube video published on Sunday, complete with classic sound effects, music and all.
Bell also configured the Touch Bar to display the Doom HUD, featuring health, ammo, weapons and other in-game stats at the top of the MacBook Pro keyboard, ostensibly while the game itself runs on the main screen.
Side note, as ridiculous (ly amazing) as Doom is running on the Touch Bar is... the HUD is equally great pic.twitter.com/RFwq7nJ7ae
