SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ --

Do you remember your first time? The lights were low, your adrenaline was pumping and you were scared stiff. Now you can relive the nightmare wherever you go with the release of DOOM(R) for the Game Boy(R) Advance from id Software(TM) and Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI). DOOM is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB and carries a suggested retail price of $39.99.

Developed by id Software and David A. Palmer Productions, DOOM for the Game Boy Advance delivers the same nonstop action and immersive 3-D thrills of the legendary PC game in a go-anywhere form factor. Packed with labyrinthine levels and hordes of hellish enemies, DOOM supports single and 2 - 4 person multiplayer action in Cooperative or Deathmatch modes via the Game Boy(R) Advance Game Link(R) cable.

"Who says you can't take it with you?" said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. "DOOM for the Game Boy Advance gives gamers the legendary action and intense multiplayer capabilities of the original, right in the palm of their hands."

DOOM challenges gamers to assume the role of a lone Space Marine who must rid a Martian moon of an army of gruesome, hell-spawned creatures that have invaded it. Equipped with an explosive arsenal of weapons including Chainguns, Plasma Rifles and Rocket Launchers, players will face off against demons and opponents through 24 enormous single-player levels and eight dedicated multiplayer maps. In addition, players can team up with a friend and blast through DOOM's maze of levels with a friend in cooperative mode.
