PlayDoom for PlayBook Updated to v1.0.9

PlayDoom for the Blackberry PlayBook has been updated to version 1.0.9. PlayDoom is an awesome port of Doombased on Mike Welsh’s flash version.  It features some basic multitouch controls and (obviously) great framerates. Now the full version of Doom (if you own it) is also playable!

UPDATE: 1.0.8
-Sideloading the data file (wad) of the full retail version of Doom now works, look for instructions in the help menu!
-Improved controls (still not perfect, but better than the last version – at least no stuck buttons anymore).
-A faulty ad in the help section, you’ll need a long press to open it.

SAVING NOW WORKS!
With the 1.0.6 PlayBook update, the game saves correctly. Make sure you update your PlayBook as the next version of PlayDoom will only support the 1.0.6 version of the system software.

UPDATE: 1.0.3
A small update released, witch should make the game controls slightly more usable. I’ve also revamped the help screen, so it’s more informative.

Known problems that will be fixed eventually, sorted by priority:
High priority:
-Control and multitouch issues (I believe I’ve found the cause of the issues and I’m working on it)
-Better GPU utilization, maybe some texture filtering options.

Low priority:
-No music. I loved the music too, but the other issues are more pressing at the moment.
-Very minor sound stuttering

Just a note: I saw some people wondering about it, so I’ll make it clear: this port will always remain free.

Head on over to App World and grab the update!
