Say what ?! Er... I'm confused. Doom with M/Craft mobs ? Scam ?

The other apps by this dev don't look too promising. One is called 'punch a troll' and is priced 57.99 !

I am steering well clear of this.

It'd be a rip off if they took the doom source code and shoehorned in a graphical do over. But something tells me they took a couple of screenies from the Doom app and photoshopped bad graphics onto them...

I'd love to be proven wrong, but I doubt I'll be eating my hat anytime soon.

You're probably right, but I'd consider it a rip off of id's work either way due to the dev trying to trade off it.

I should have clarified, it's worse than a rip off if it is what I think it is...

I'm not sticking up for this dev, i mean it looks a total con, Doom with a couple of 'perhaps' weapons slightly modified. I mean you can tell with just 2 screenshots and no gameplay video etc that it looks suspicious.

But isnt Doom open-source ? I presume its only for fans and not revenue-earning companies to create new games ?

If this had totally new levels/new graphics etc i would totally be into it, but as it is it seems like they've changed minimal graphics and are now trying to pass it off as a new game.

I would AVOID big time

Yeah the code is open source, the assets like graphics and sound aren't. I think the agreement is non commercial only and that you must release your modified code as well. Someone with better knowledge may be able to give a more accurate interpretation.
