From pianos and ATM machines to the potato battery farm, Doom seems to run anything these days. Nintendo’s Nostalgia Cam & Watch alarm clock working valuable FPS.
Look at it. It’s got a screen and some buttons. This is a qualification in practice.
Released earlier this year, Nintendo’s Cam & Watch: Super Mario Brothers was the company’s first portable handset. But where that toy was a simple screen with a few interchangeable components, its 2020 successor is a fully functional console-slash-alarm-clock, packaged with two full Mario games.
Naturally, the hardware hacking channel Stokesmashing avoided the matter to see what else the teen kit could run. Of course, there was only one answer.
“After I posted my last video about hacking the new Nintendo game & watch, people […] One thing was very clear: Cam & Watch must run Doom. “

With a little time for Tinker, you can get the full source code of the channel Kitup page. They plan to get more homebrew software on the device in the future – but personally, I hope they manage to integrate Doom with the current alarm clock functionality of Game & Watch.
After all, what could wake me up more than the bloody screams of a ghost attack?
