Description

Carmageddon is the original freeform driving sensation, where pedestrians (and cows!) equal points, and your opponents are a bunch of crazies in a twisted mix of automotive killing machines. The game features anarchic drive-wherever-you-like gameplay and over-the-top surreal comedy violence. It’s the racing game where racing is for wimps.

Now the same classic that was BANNED AROUND THE WORLD is back and available on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Carmageddon features real-world environments that have been turned into killing fields, where the locals stay out on the streets at their peril. As well as using your car as a weapon, every level is sprinkled generously with power-ups that have a vast variety of mad effects, adding a whole extra level of craziness to the proceedings. In every event you have the option to “play it your way”… Waste all your opponents, kill every pedestrian, or (perish the thought) complete all the laps. Oh and watch out – the cops in their super-tough armoured patrol vehicles are lurking, and if they catch you being bad they’ll be down on you like several tons of cold pork!

Selected reviews

“It is almost like playing an FPS, only instead of a weapon in your hands, you have a steering wheel.”
“Morbid? Yes. Violent? Extremely. But Carmageddon also remains as addictive a gaming experience as ever. Definitely worth a download if you have nerves - and sensitivities - of steel.”
4/5 – Thinkdigit.com

“This iOS port of Carmageddon is a mind-blowingly faithful trip back into the 90s.”
“This is as good as it gets when it comes to powersliding into a football team, landing on a herd of cows, or trying to get around that barely possible loop-de-loop on the second map”
4 stars – quartertothree.com

“Some days you just want to tear something apart and Carmageddon is just what the doctor ordered.”
5/5 – appspy.com

“Carmageddon's slapstick gore is more Monty Python than Saw - it's almost quaint.”
“We can see it for what it truly is: one of the finest car combat games ever made”
8/10 – Pocketgamer.co.uk

“Overall this game is a kick in the head with steel capped nostalgia”
“Carmageddon is a classic game and one that all true gamers should have played at some point in their life.”
8/10 – pixelbedlam.co.uk

“In a sea of play-for-one-day, 69 pence mobile games, Carmageddon feels much more substantial.”
“Carmageddon was the kind of brainless froth that gave computer games a bad name; today, in the mobile market, it feels like the equivalent of Skyrim”
8/10 – ibtimes.co.uk

“The game you play is a perfect, faithful re-creation of the original game from 15 years ago, but there are enough modern twists (such as the posting to YouTube, the flexibility of controls, and so on) to show that they’ve understood how iOS is different and adapted the game accordingly.
Cultofmac.com

“Carmageddon has been extremely well adapted to the iOS platform.”
