Doom (GBA) - PC Doom Total Conversion

Hack of Doom

Description:

This patch completely converts the game from using the dated stripped down Jaguar Doom engine and instead switches it to a new homebrew port based on doomhack’s PrBoom port to the GBA. Meaning, higher quality sounds, full non-simplified PC Doom maps, better framerate (yes!), graphics and music (far better music, they play in the correct level now!)

The HUD has been changed to match the one from the GBA Doom II PC Conversion pack. Unfortunately this homebrew port doesn’t contain multiplayer.

Patch the original retail GBA Doom rom with Lunar IPS and this GBADoom-PC.ips

User Review Information

needs more optimization, but still awesome

Reviewed By: J^P on 25 Feb 2020

I tested this on real gba, with ez-flash omega. While this looks and plays great, the framerate is all over the place and can go from 35fps to single digits even when theres nothing going on(which I found really jarring). Another weird thing I noticed was that some textures are messed up, and if you open menu and close there are white dots all around wall-textures. Personally I find it very playable and had no problems seeing anything even on my og gba with its original screen, while playing under desktop bright led light. Overall this is much better than the original, but it needs little more optimization to run at more stable framerates.

Version 1.4 Recommended - Yes
