II for GBA Announced
The ultimate battle is in the palm of gamers'
hands with the development of id Software's DOOM II(tm) for the Game Boy®
Advance. Published by Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), the game is a joint
development effort by id Software(tm) and Torus Games, and follows the epic
saga of one marine against the demon hordes of hell with non-stop action,
terrifying enemies, fluid graphics, and outstanding multiplayer carnage.
"DOOM II is a gaming icon and a must-play for any game fan," said Todd
Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. "Whether you prefer taking on the hell-scum
alone, cooperatively with a friend, or going head-to-head in deathmatch,
DOOM II is the perfect handheld action-fest."
DOOM II takes the terror planet side as the entire forces of the netherworld
have overrun Earth. As the lone survivor of a doomed mission, players must
make use of an awesome array of deadly weapons and descend into the stygian
depths of Hell itself to rid Earth of the invading demon horde.
Like the original PC game, players must blast their way through over 30
levels filled with 17 unique and deadly enemies. To help push back the
scourge, players will have access to nine different weapons including the
legendary chainsaw, double barrel shotgun and BFG. Additionally, DOOM II
supports co-operative play so gamers can team-up to rid the world of
hellspawn, or go head-to-head with up to four other players in classic
Deathmatch mode where it's every marine for himself.
