I don't know what it was about Doom RPG, but it was one of my favorite mobile games back when I had a Java-based handset. There was nothing particularly novel about the game, it being an extremely typical turn-based-style RPG with Doom sprites. But it was a cheap thrill, and it got plenty of play while waiting in lines and sitting in public rest rooms.
Now that we've moved on to bigger and fancier mobile gaming platforms, I've got my eye on id Software's Wolfenstein RPG. Seemingly cut from the same cloth as its Doom RPG forefather, the game looks like it'll let me shoot nazis and kick chickens. Sold.
Honestly, I'm not sure what the hold up is with the release of this game; while a version of Wolfenstein RPG is available on other handsets, the iPhone version still doesn't have a release date. These measly three screens are some of the first officially issued by the game's publisher, Electronic Arts. But it's not the first time we've seen the game -- a seemingly complete version of the game went up on (and then was pulled off of) the Japanese App Store back in May.
