DOOM Classic has been updated to a universal app that now supports the iPad. This is one game where the term classic really applies – it’s one of the first massive PC games of its type, and certainly the first one I ever got to know well.

Here’s a slice of its App Store description:

Welcome to Hell! Prepare to relive the First Person Shooter that defined a generation with the legendary original DOOM – now on the iPhone. As a space marine stationed on the planet Mars, you are all that stands between the armies of Hell and their invasion of planet Earth!

DOOM Classic includes the original three episodes as well as Episode Four, Thy Flesh Consumed, spread across 36 levels of non-stop carnage and action.

Choose from customizable control schemes, all designed by id Software co-founder and industry legend, John Carmack. Wield unforgettable weapons like the Chainsaw and the BFG 9000 while fighting through notorious monsters like the Imp, Cacodemon, and Hell Knight!

And some good news on its multiplayer capabilities:

In DOOM Classic, multiplayer action is reborn! With a wireless connection, battle up to four players in Deathmatch mode, or work together cooperatively and fight back against the demons of Hell.

I installed the game last night but only had a chance to spend about 5 minutes with it. It looked good in my brief glimpse.

Here’s an App Store link for DOOM Classic; it’s priced at $4.99.
