Get ready to dive into the adorable yet action-packed world of Mighty Doom, the latest addition to the iconic Doom franchise, now available for download worldwide on mobile devices!
Developed by Alpha Dog, a subsidiary of Bethesda, the game is a top-down shooter that boasts an incredibly cute visual style inspired by the collectible toys featured in Doom Eternal. It’s been a long time coming since its limited Android soft launch in 2021, but the game has finally left its beta status and is now ready for everyone to enjoy on both Android and iOS.
The cutest spinoff, Mighty Doom!
Despite its cute and cuddly aesthetic, Mighty Doom does its best to stay true to the essence of classic Doom games, with fast-paced shooting and constant movement being key components of the gameplay.
The developers have also made sure that the game is easy to pick up and play on the go, with a portrait-oriented action and a one-touch control scheme. While Mighty Doom is free to play, there are plenty of in-app purchases available that offer instant item unlocks to speed up your progression.
However, it’s worth noting that some of these purchases were disabled during beta, so it remains to be seen how they will affect the overall gameplay experience.
It’s still cute, though
Mighty Doom may not necessarily appeal to the existing Doom fandom, but it’s a fun and entertaining spin-off that is perfect for casual gamers looking for a quick and engaging mobile experience. If you’re a hardcore Doom fan, you can always opt for the mobile ports of the original games, Doom and Doom 2, available on Android and iOS for $4.99 each.
The spinoff might just be a decoy for a bigger release
Overall, Mighty Doom is a delightful addition to the Doom franchise and is sure to bring joy to both casual and hardcore gamers alike. While it may not be indicative of what’s next for the franchise, it’s still an exciting glimpse into the potential of the series on mobile devices.
