Bethesda Announces Mighty Doom, A Top-Down And "Adorably Violent" Mobile Game

Rip and tap until it is done.


At long last, a new game in the Doom franchise has been announced, but this one won't be headed to PC or consoles. Instead, Mighty Doom is a new mobile game that features the Doomslayer--or Mini Slayer--doing what he does best, which is running and gunning down scores of demons while you direct his rage with your fingers.

Bethesda says that you'll be able to work your way through hordes of adorably violent demons, iconic levels, and challenging bosses as you level up, unlocking powerful skills and upgrading your arsenal in the process. The Mini Slayer also has a cuter design when compared to his mainline counterpart from 2016's Doom and its Doom Eternal sequel, as well as an unquenchable thirst for violence thanks to the demon dolls stealing his beloved pet rabbit Daisy.

As an added twist, Mighty Doom has a roguelite design so expect to die often, rise back up, and grind your way through the hordes of hell as you steadily grow more powerful. The game officially launches on March 21 and is being developed by Nova Scotia studio Alpha Dog Games.

Interestingly, this is the second recent mobile game release that features an iconic character running through dangerous locations and gauntlets of enemies, as Tomb Raider Reloaded is now available for Netflix subscribers.

Bethesda's Doom franchise has been dormant since last year's major 6.66 update added several new features, tweaks, and accessibility options to the game, but Id Software still has plenty of stories to tell in that universe.
