The lights are on
Seems like Doom is on anything with a screen these days. As proof here’s a video of the game running on Texas Instrument’s TI-Nspire calculator!
A few tech savvy geeks at Omnimaga have figured out how to get id’s popular shooter to run on their graphing calculators. It’s better than what I had when I was in school. The only game I could play on my calculator was “I can write boobs upside-down.” At least that never got old.
The game is in Beta right now, but check out a demo of the game in action below.

WHAT HAS SCIENCE DONE!?
Wow. That's crazy.
My old mentor once told me that Doom was basicly an Advanced calculator... HE WAS RIGHT!!!!!! O_O'
best thing to play during calculus ever...
Haha, gaming on the calculator. I always thought the guys at my high-school were too nerdy compared to me, and I always laughed on the inside.
When playing this at school or work, there should be a button to quickly switch back to the actual calculator so that you don't get in trouble.
Holy crap, seriously?
To think of all the time wasted in math class doing actual math when I could have benn doing something productive. What a shame...
Not bad, not bad...now they just need Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.
Doom is best game to play on any system. It's a game that everyone should be familiar with, if not then I dont know where the hell you've been.
People already did this on the Ti83 using Mirage OS: www.ticalc.org/.../mirageos
The list is alphabetical, so scroll to the D's and you'll find it.
No more writing 8008135 on my calculator!
Thats amazing!!! Who knew that they could get a legendary FPS game to fun on a calculator?
crazy how powerful calculators are now and could pull this off.
I have a good old TI-83+ without a link cable, so I have to make my own games. I don't know assembly programming so I have to use TI BASIC, which is bulky and slow, and I'm pretty crap at that anyway, so I can only make really slow, simple turn based games. The greatest program I ever made was an adaptation of www.kongregate.com/.../versus on the home screen. It was still extremely slow, but it worked, and it kept track of your score, so I was pretty proud of it.
That calculator needs to be nerfed
Ha, imagine playing this in class.
The teacher would have no way to know whether you were paying attention or not.
As long as it's Math Class, that is.
