Gameplay[]

Doom Resurrection is an on-rails mobile game. To aim, players would use the accelerometer in the phone to shift the crosshair around. There are four buttons on the screen: reload in top right, weapon swap in top left, fire in bottom right, and dodge/cover (situational) in bottom left. To collect ammo and health, players would need to tap the screen at the location of the item. There is no ammo in the game.

The game has four difficulty modes, like Doom 3: Recruit, Marine, Veteran, and Nightmare.

Gameplay can be a bit slow. There is rarely any progression while enemies (rarely more than two at a time) are on screen, and there are moments where there are back-to-back-to-back waves of enemies. At the end of each level, players get ranked based on their performance - accuracy, head shots, secret items, etc. If the player dies, they'll reload at the last checkpoint at 100 health, regardless of how much health they had when reaching the checkpoint (at least at Marine difficulty).

Other than the opening cinematic, which shares elements of Doom 3's opening cinematic, there is no voiced dialogue, with the story told entirely through text.

Story[]

Opening

June 2145.
UAC Research Facility, Mars City.

At approximately 21:00 hours UMT, an experiment in the Delta Labs triggered an unknown event, resulting in the systematic invasion of the entire facility. Marine forces have been deployed to hot spots around the facility, with many teams encountering heavy resistance. Bravo Team was ambushed in the EnPro facility while searching for survivors.

You are the last surviving member of that team.

Ending

From: UAC Corporate -- To: Earth Press Corps
Date: 2145 -- Subject: INCIDENT AT MARS CITY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Following the regrettable accident at an off-world UAC Weapons Research Facility (Mars City), the UAC reports the complete loss of the facility and all personnel. The UAC extends our condolences to family members and friends. Those who lost their lives knew the risks of offworld research and development and the UAC salutes their sacrifice. An official investigation has been launched, and the UAC is dedicated to rebuilding the Mars facility with enhanced safety protocols. For more information please contact the UAC PR Department.
