John Carmack has put up a progress update on getting doom for the iPhone.
I have been spending the majority of my time working on iPhone Doom Classic for several weeks now, and the first beta build went out to some external testers a couple days ago. I am moving back on to Rage for a while, but I expect to be able to finish it up for submission to the App Store next month.
...
The initial release will be for OS 2.x, and support multiplayer over WiFi. A later release will be for 3.x only, and support bluetooth multiplayer. I looked into the possibility of 3G multiplayer, but the latencies just aren't good enough -- I see 380 or so pings from my phone to local servers.
Will you buy it? promoted/edited forum item

I still haven't bought any iPod Touch apps! I don't think I'll buy this either; I have a PC. I hope there's a demo version tho, I'll happily play map01 over and over and over

I played the Wolfenstein demo on my iphone the other day, and it was very awkward to hold and play. As good as the game is, the iphone just isn't designed for FPS games IMO.

I would expect the same from Doom.

Here's something I read about the controls for Wolf3d on the iphone.

Those complaining about the controls in Wolfy3d for iPhone haven't configured the game correctly. Set it so you tilt the phone to move left/right at about 60% sensitivity, and then have the button to shoot on the right while forward/backwards is on the left. It feels 100% natural and it's much more satisfying to play than the original Wolfy.

Wolf3D has great iPhone controls, and they are fully changeable if you don't like the defaults.

I paid ~$6 for Wolf, certainly won't pay the same for Doom considering it'll most likely drop to ~$2 after a month or two.

yeah wolf3d rocks on the iphone, can't get enough of it, controls are well thought out, (not that there are many) but it works well with the iphone.

ATC 4.0 is the one I've got, you got a different app? It's easily confused with another game .. as evidenced by my mate who said "OMG OMG OMG GET ATC IT'S AWESOME" and then it turns out he was talking about a different game. Luckily for him, ATC is still awesome though.

Yeah I didn't buy wolf3d mostly because doom had been announced, and I don't want to pay for both.
