Good news for the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic owners. C2DOOM — i.e. Doom for Symbian S60 — has been optimized to work with your all-touchscreen smartphone.
The game works both in portrait and landscape mode, with latter being preferred way to play thanks to 5800’s hi-res screen. It’s an entirely touch-based game, and you can move around either by stylus or hand – whatever suits you best. There’s also movable virtual keys on the screen, which provide rest of the controls including the weapon selection, action, enter, map and menu.
Two versions of C2DOOM are available for download – core and full. The former is a “game only,” featuring only a shareware episode (download is available from here).
The full version has an S60 UI, letting you select a WAD file, game mode (single player, co-operative or deathmatch) and optionally give parameters. All gaming keys are configurable within keymapper app, screen rotation is supported even while playing and there’s also a cheat editor. Finally, the full version UI is skinable, which is really not that important for the game itself…
