DOOM comes to Apple iPod

“You wouldn’t think DOOM would be a possible (or even thought of for that matter) on Apple’s iPod, but the folks at iPod Linux have accomplished just that by working together,” Patrick Klepek reports for Computer Gaming World.

The Linux on iPod DOOM page also includes QuickTime movies of the game in action on an iPod.

Note: Apple no longer sells “iPod photo” players. All Apple iPods (20GB or 60GB) now include the former “iPod photo” line’s features:

    i hear ya mdn… just saying.

  3. When I see stuff like this, I think, “Gosh, I wish I could be as smart as these software geniuses.” But then I think, “But hey! There is something I can do that they can’t! I can focus a video camera!!!”
