doom-on-apple-watch

Hackathon – competition is very interesting both for hackers, and for ordinary users. But if IT professionals are more interested in improving their own skills, the man in the street where amusing look at the fruits of their work. Especially when it comes to the legendary video game DOOM. One of the authors of the port Lior Tubi said: nDOOM pretty quickly caught the eye, and we thought – if this thing works on graphic calculators, why not try it on the Watch?

Of course, the interface of the game turned out to be not too comfortable, and the developers had to work hard to solve all sorts of technical problems, but the fact is clearly worth attention. Selecting watchOS 2 is not accidental: the new system supports running applications directly on a smart watch, without to use resources from iPhone. This made possible the existence of such programs.

Lior and his colleague Mehdi managed to move the game on consoles Apple TV. Of course, there is much more convenient to play due to the presence of physical controls. The authors don’t intend to spread the source code freely, so to try the game by yourself is not yet possible. However, if the idea will be successful enough to inspire other enthusiasts, this will be a matter of the nearest future.
