Facebook developers put Doom on an Apple Watch & Apple TV

Postby labnip » Sat Oct 03, 2015 11:37 pm

Often video games are used to benchmark hardware's performance (duhhhh...).
"how many pixels can we throw on screen and still run 60 frames per second?"

But there's 1 game that's a benchmark for cultural validation, and that would be the original Doom. Phones run Doom. Calculators run Doom. Hell, you can even play Doom from inside another Doom.

You can now add Apple's latest gadgets to that list.
Facebook developers have posted videos of Doom running on Apple Watch (via watchOS 2) and the new, decidedly more app-friendly Apple TV.

The game actually seems reassuringly playable using the new TV's remote.
The same can't be said for the Apple Watch, but then again, the point isn't to make Doom user-friendly on every device; it's just to make it be.
