The Weirdest Devices That Can Play Doom, Including a LEGO Brick And An ATM
Doom has become a test and a challenge to makers. If you have a monitor and an interface…will it run Doom? IGN scoured reddit and twitter to find some of the most interesting iterations of the Doom challenge. There are cameras, iPods, treadmills and more!
Doom is one of the most influential video games of all time, but surely its creators had no idea how their work would eventually be immortalized. id Software’s 1993 first-person shooter helped define the genre when it first released on PC. Now, its reach has gone far beyond PC, launching on everything from handhelds, to smartphones, to modern consoles, to… a LEGO brick?
