Battle through 32 levels as an astronaut fighting aliens on a remote planet or be a Doom™ style marine up against the forces of Hell—with Gameception, it's all up to you!
Gameception allows you to download a number of different game versions following the familiar old-school first person shooter model and play them in one easy-to-maneuver place! It's a game within a game!
Based off the Doom Classic source code, Gameception lets you play hundreds of different “mods” (in the form of .WAD files) on your iOS device (must be PrBoom compatible!), with a variety of versions to choose from.
Gameception starts you off with "Freedoom" and allows you to download additional levels/games online. Just hit "Manage" in Gameception and you can easily download other levels and games. All you have to do is search the web (using Gameception), find a mod that you like, and download it! Once downloaded, simply tap the game to enable play.
If you already have such a .WAD file (like Doom™ or Doom II™) on your computer, transfer it over with Dropbox or iTunes File Sharing.
Get Gameception today and let the first-person shooter fun begin!
What's New in Version 1.1
*Update Dropbox support
*Add iPhone 5 support
Pretty solid start on allowing you to play your own wads. I have my own functional port of Doom that I've been working on for some time now. The idea of Dropbox integration is nice. The custom ipack ui graphics are pretty horrendous. You would be better off not having them and on the screen controls. I believe this is the first attempt at porting the early Doom iOS source to support larger resolutions. I applaud you for your efforts and am quite surprised to see this in the AppStore. I look forward to seeing what you do next with this app. The idea of just making a straight port of prBoom with no iWad would be cool. I have functional net play in my source from the early releases. I think adding net play to your app and game center support as well as customizing / stripping down the UI more would make this app even better. Cheers
Great but could be way better
This is a really great app, playing Hell Reveled and Alien Vendetta on the iPhone is amazing. This could be better though, first off, there's no way to change -complevels which for some WADs can be problematic, and second, there's no way to record or play back LMPs - one of the essential parts of Doom and PRBoom. Another thing I'd like to see is the ability to change soundfonts because some of the midi music sounded really dreadful. That last request's a bit of a long shot but I think the first two should seriously be implemented, but besides that, perfect!
i love this app
I have taken 2 stars off of my review. Nate this app needs an update soon. I hope that the update isn't for the new iOS either. I'm running on iOS 6. I'm really tired of having to delete the app and re-download it everytime for downloading a wad that says its prboom compatable then it just crashes. Everytime I reopen the app, it will give the gameception logo, then crash again and again. Im still waiting to see when colored lighting and doom 64 will be compatable with this app. I have over 100 wads and zip files I have to download everytime I have to reinstall the app. It gets very tiresome. Please update this app.
