    The one game, that exists on every mobile phone I have ever owned, is apparently not available for android. Anyone have a clue if it's coming or a way to get it to work?

    FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE A CONTINUOUS ISSUE WITH READING AND UNDERSTANDING A THREAD THEY'RE POSTING IN, THIS IS FOR THE ~*~*~*DOOM RPG*~*~*~ GAME!!!

    I hate it that we can't get these games. The vcast section of the market barely offers any games. I wish this would change.

    I don't think vcast is going to take off to well seeing as they like to overprice there games. I mean if its a real well done game sweet ill pay but most the games were just lame popcap games or old Retro ones, out those against Droid games only being a couple dollars......

    Yeah $7 for pacman! Yeah right. I think that's the price at least. I just meant some of the games that are actually worth it.

    Oh I know man, galaga was worth every penny but they have no scale for what a game is worth, 8 bucks for about any game and that was after they raised all the prices then charged you to download, I had an env2, a data plan was worthless on that and had to bite the bullet n pay like 10 bucks, god forbid you lose your phone or something, they wont give you the games back if you get a phone replaced. I was going to saith to sprint or someone for the droid cause I expected then to lock these phones down like they so all their pbones

    I feel your frustration. I have Doom 2 RPG on my iPod Touch, and it's a fantastic game, ideal for a small screen. I'd love to play the original Doom RPG too. I continue to be very disappointed in Android's quality game selection, but hopefully that will change over time.

    Can't speak for others but I've never heard of Doom RPG. That's what's with it for me.

    Try posting a link for clarity next time. ;)

    Or people can just Google it (as you probably did yourself). No reason to spoon feed people who are perfectly capable of feeding themselves. Really, if they're capable of getting to this forum and reading this post, they are capable of using Google as well.

    The Vcast games are super overpriced. I agree fully. The Pac Man game we get offerered didnt even support keyboard support last time I check, and pac man without physical controls sucks big time. I was always suprised at the prices for everything when compared to the great games availabe for Android and iPhone for much less. Or if they are similar in price for Android or iPhone, they were premium games, and looked and plyaed like it. And whats with the vcast games and they're lack of demos??? that always drove me nuts...

    I visited game evil's website (the makers of zenonia) and I read that they ported zenonia for the droid after many requests from droid users via email. Maybe you can try the same for doom RPG, and get some friends to as well. Just find out who developed the game.

    It's all handled by Electronic Arts :( So fat chance of getting any response from them. From their mobile games website they support the t-mobile G1 but that's it for android devices as of now :\

    Doom port

    Check google codes page. Both Doom and Quake are available FREE. Just have to download, extract (.zip .tz), and transfer to the sd card. Good ports!

    Thanks for trying, but as stated earlier in this thread Doom and Quake are different than Doom RPG. The former are first-person-shooter games originally released ~15 years ago. Doom RPG is themed like Doom and played in a first person perspective, but it is a turn based RPG, not a FPS. Doom RPG is roughly four years old now. See the wiki link in this thread for more info.

    John Carmack got the idea for Doom RPG when he noted how poor mobile gaming was overall, yet phones were getting more powerful. Carmack also determined that controls limitations of phones made them more suited to playing RPGs on rather than twitchy FPS games. Thus Doom RPG was born. It does incorporate some code from the original, but is a spin-off project.

    The success of Doom RPG spawned a few other games. Orcs & Elves was an original IP based on the Doom RPG engine. Then there was Orcs & Elves 2. The latest in the series is Wolf RPG, which as one can figure out from the name is a RPG based on the Wolfenstein series.

    I've played Doom RPG and Orcs & Elves. Both are excellent games. In fact, they are the best two games I've played so far that are genuine developed-for-phone games.

    The problem is that there aren't any universal standards in the cell phone world when it comes to gaming. So, the games have to be tweaked for different carriers, firmware and hardware depending on tons of variables (the graphics hardware, screen res, brew / java / etc. code engine). The reason I have never played Orcs & Elves 2 and Wolf RPG is because I haven't owned a phone they were ported to.

    If we want these games for the Android OS, we need to let EA & id know. If they see there's enough of a market to justify the cost, they'll probably go ahead and port them.

    well ID Software apparently doesn't have an email (not even listed on their homepage) and to contact EA about it required making an account and all that.

    I guess I'll start it off

    [edit] kak@idsoftware.com found this one but it's for a webmaster?
