WiiDoom is a Wii port of Doom using the open source PrBoom engine.


  1. If you are using the Homebrew Channel, just copy the WiiDoom directory from the archive to the apps directory on the root of your SD card. If you are using another loader, you have to use the "boot.dol" file.
  2. Copy the prboom directory from the archive to the root of your SD card. You will need a WAD data file to play. It must be placed in the prboom folder.
  3. Launch the game using your loader.

Playable WADS

WAD files contain levels, sounds, textures, and sprite data necessary to play the game. The following commercial wads are known to work:

In theory, many of the custom wads created by the Doom fan community may also work.

Support for the free software/open source FreeDoom wad has been dropped as of v0.2 due to compatibility issues with some of its levels.

PWAD Support

PWADs can be loaded in the order you choose when launching the program. See the instructions for how to activate PWADs.

The PWAD Super Mario Doom, for instance, is known to work.


If the nunchuk is not working when WiiDoom first loads, then simply unplug it and plug it back in.
