Hmmmm.. im not sure if the post of the oley soap is saying its good? Or if its mocking...?

More like just making a joke that is slightly at your expense based on the accidentally misspelling of playing ;)

Either way, the GBA port was technologically impressive. Having the game running as well as it did on such a relatively primitive platform took a lot of work. The limitations of the port are unfortunately pretty high though :P

GBA Doom II isn't even a port.


What am I missing? We're talking about GBA Doom here, aren't we ;)

Anyway, I think GBA Doom is pretty good. They actually managed to translate it onto GBA fairly well. It's essentially Jaguar Doom; but it has more stable multiplayer and 8 more (exclusive, no less) levels for deathmatch play.

I personally like GBA Doom II better. It may not be a "port", as exp(X) said, but it's a very impressive conversion.

When I first saw it I can't tell you how impressed I was that I could play Doom on my GBA... and it felt and played like the real thing.

I still regularly play it to this day. I often day dream of someone like Kaiser hacking some new maps into it. Can you imagine playing AV or SID on the GBA?! OR, better still, Doom Builder support for the GBA port.

OT: Doom II on the GBA is actually converted onto the South Paw engine, is that correct? That engine is some seriously impressive tech. :)

I have both DOOM 1 & 2 for GBA. The graphics aren't great, the levels aren't great, the music isn't great, but those are due to the GBA's limitations. Definitely not the worst "ports"; limitations aside, they're actually rather good. However, I don't like the fact they removed the gore and Satanic imagery.

Doom without those things is just like watching fake/pretend porn. Certainly, if done right, it can "work" just as well sometimes, but you can't help thinking it's not the real thing.

On the GBA I was playing Doom 1 on, the colours were so washed out and the resolution so low that it didn't matter much. What mattered was that my ass was repeatedly handed to me on E3M1 and other maps due to having weaker control, and Cacodemons seemed to be faster too, correct?

It's playable, just might take you some time to adjust after being used to highres. But now try any SDL port on 80x25 text console via libcaca...
