Image: id Software/ has announced that its port of id Software’s DOOM 2 RPG has been successfully completed and is now available to download and play on PC. Originally released for the iPhone and iPod Touch way back in 2010, DOOM 2 RPG is set one year after the events of the original game, and while there’s a lot of familiar elements here, including Marines, Pinkys, and Spiderdemons, the game is also a unique take on the franchise, bringing back the series’ usual FPS gameplay but blending it with turn-based, RPG gameplay mechanics. Players can power up using “Nano Drinks” and loot the corpses of demons and other enemies for items, according to a feature list.

From an Apple Store description:

Choose one of three different characters and get ready to battle through hordes of deadly monsters, including returning favorites such as the Pinky, Cacodemon, and Revenant, as well as new threats like the Sawcubus and Sentinel!
