Here’s ‘Doom’ Playing on the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar

Developer Adam Bell has successfully ported the classic first-person shooter Doom onto the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar’s 2,170-by-60 pixel resolution OLED display complete with 3D graphics, the game’s familiar head-up display and trademark sound effects. Doom, of course, runs on everything these days thanks to enthusiasts who port the game onto computing devices that can handle it.

I’m not surprised because, as you’ll see for yourself in the video embedded below, the Touch Bar’s ultra wide 2170-by-60 display makes the game impractical to play due to the squashed vertical resolution.

Bell also figured out a way to get the title’s HUD right there in the Touch Bar, too, so that it can display all the important things like Health, Armor, and Ammo, while the rest of the game runs on the display proper.
So what do you think ?
