BFG9000 in Your Home Screen? Doom LWP for Android

If you liked Mario LWP for Android, but wished there was something a bit more violent to grace the background in your Android device, your prayers have been answered. XDA member jgittins just developed a new Live Wallpaper with a Doom theme. While this isn’t the FPS LWP that you would expect from reading the title of the thread, this 2D shooter is very well done with several monsters and demons from the depths of the world of Doom. You can help your soldier by providing him with items like health, armor, and new weapons to make it safely through the hordes of monsters coming at him from all different directions.

The LWP is interactive as you will spawn items by touching on the wallpaper. However, you must think and act quick as the items will spawn after a certain amount of time has passed. Give it a go and leave some feedback for the dev.

I was inspired by the Mario live wallpaper on these forums to make something similar using the Doom sprites. I released it as a beta last week and have been constantly updating it as often as I can.

The response has been very positive so far, I haven’t even had any 1 star reviews from people who don’t understand how to use it like I have with the other live wallpapers I’ve published.

It’s free, but does contain an admob ad in the settings (same as mario live wallpaper).

You can find more information in the application thread.
