Mighty DOOM is here to tarnish your memory of DOOM Eternal
Mighty DOOM is a semi-new mobile game currently available in Early access now on Android. Most people can’t play it because the test seems to be quite limited and there doesn’t seem to be any more open availability for players.
But there’s always a chance that early access to Mighty DOOM will open up to more players in the future. The game has not been officially announced. So there aren’t many details on when a possible launch will be. However, the game is currently undergoing updates for players who have access to it.
The listing on Google Play also says it’s still in its early stages. This implies that there may be some time before it is ready for a full launch.
Early Access to Mighty DOOM isn’t entirely new
It probably looks like Mighty DOOM is new and coming out of nowhere. And the latter is true. He came out of nowhere. But it’s been available in Google Play’s early access program for a few months.
Gameplay-wise, it’s a top-down shooter that lets you kill demons in stages with boss fights at the end. You can acquire new equipment to equip your slayer and improve your abilities.
And as many have already pointed out, it looks more or less like a reskin of a game called Archero. So if you are curious about how Mighty DOOM plays, you can install Archero and try it out, which should give you a really good idea.
Ruin a good thing
For better or for worse, Mighty DOOM is a thing that exists. While it can be a good waste of time when you’re bored, it’s not the kind of quality you expect from a studio like Bethesda.
Keep in mind that this is the same studio that just released DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part Two. Before that, the first part and the base game of DOOM Eternal before that. All three have been critically acclaimed and deserve all the praise they have received.
Then there is this. Which appears to be nothing more than a seizure of money aimed at attracting fans. Bethesda could learn a thing or two from Riot. Who recently launched League Of Legends: Wild Rift in open beta in the Americas. Or Blizzard, which is Immortal Diablo went through a Technical Alpha in December of last year.
These two games are a master class on how to make mobile games. More than that, how to bring a popular PC and console franchise to mobile and not spoil the good memory of your brand.
