Get some Doom on your 'droid

If you've got an Android phone, you probably know about 'live wallpaper' - the quite nifty function which lets you put animated backgrounds on your phone's home screen. Well, this might just be the niftiest live wallpaper yet.

A small-time developer has posted details on a mobile forum of his new Doom wallpaper. Inspired by the classic 90's first-person shooter, it features an array of different bad guys and the requisite guns 'n' gore, though you can't actually play it, of course.

Fancy it? It's available as a beta now, for free, in the Android market. Something to enjoy while you wait for Rage HD, the new mobile game from the makers of Doom, to make it to Android.
