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-XXX.ips

User Review Information

That's the way they should have released this game!

Reviewed By: scorpion23 on 26 Jan 2020

I’ve been playing for a couple of hours, and boy, they did some voodoo magic here, cause this version is awesome! The graphics aside from resolution are equal to PC, the sound and music is GREAT, and even more, tru nightmare mode is rpesent, on which the monsters came back after some seconds! Really impressive, but, this works con a flash cart or something like that, to play aon a real GBA console?

Version 1.2.1 Recommended - Yes
