Mighty Doom is a Doom mobile game being developed by Alpha Dog Games and published by Bethesda Softworks. After a year of rumors, Bethesda opened early access testing in Canada and New Zealand for Android phones and tablets for version 0.5.0 on April 12th, 2021. It is the first mobile, free-to-play and always-online game in the Doom series.

The game was launched worldwide on March 21, 2023, about three years after the release of Doom Eternal, which it is loosely based on. However, on May 7, 2024, following Bethesda Softworks' controversial decision to cut four subsidiary studios out of its budget and close them down, including Alpha Dog Games, the game is planned to meet an untimely end and shut down in three months' time on August 7, 2024, with no viable substitute developer available to keep supporting the game.

Weapons[]

Weapons in Mighty Doom are split into three categories: primary, secondary and ultimate weapons. The primary weapon is fired automatically, whereas the secondary and ultimate weapons are both triggered manually by the player once they have enough charge. The player's secondary weapon will recharge every ten seconds or upon completion of a room, unless an ability is triggered which recharges it sooner. Ultimate weapons are charged by killing demons, with varying amounts of charge being restored based on the weapon and demon killed.

Each weapon has a variety of cosmetic skins. These skins range from simple palette swaps to brand new models with custom sounds or visual effects, though none of them have an impact on performance. Weapon skins may be purchased using crystals, by paying for time-limited DLC packs, or by progressing through season passes.

Reaction[]

The official trailer has been panned by fans due to its similarity to the popular mobile game Archero (a top-down shooter featuring an archer), for hyper-casual gameplay, for in-app purchases that can reach up to NZ$174.99 (Approximately US$124.93), for its cartoony art style, and general disregard for the Doom brand. The few critic reviews are mostly negative for similar reasons.[1] Thus, Mighty Doom is often considered a low-effort "cash-grab" by Bethesda, due to the nearly identical gameplay to another popular game and the branding of one of their most popular properties.

Trivia[]

  • The App's size is 455 MB for the latest version, and 304 MB for the Android Package file.
