Cool i didnt know they did that. Had a quick go and 'so far' seems okay. Love it when they compress these old games down. Depressing when some game from the 80's which was 0.5 meg is suddenly a 200 meg download on iOS because theyve added huge graphics/sound files etc.

If I remember correctly, the earlier versions used prerecorded MP3 (or M4A) versions of the music instead of the original MIDI style tunes. A few people here have commented on how the music sounds different, so my guess is that they switched over to using the original songs (generated on the fly instead of prerecorded) which would explain the massive decrease in file size.

Yep, still possible. Just tap four fingers on the screen at once while playing.

When i switch off the music, close Doom and then open Doom later, the music is still running, although the musicicon is turned off.

It is now May of 2014, and I'm still having this problem on my iPad 2. Must be iOS 7? I wish they would fix this. Great game, but I miss putting on my own music!
