Carmageddon now available for iOS, FREE for the first day of release
Carmageddon, the classicÂ vehicular combat video game that was released in the late 90’s, is now available for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Inspired by the cult movie Death Race 2000, Carmageddon pretty much makes all other (action) racers pale in comparison. It was at one point even banned in a number of countries due to its violent nature.
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. Itâ€™s the racing game where racing is for wimps.
Fans of the original will no doubt appreciate that nothing’s been held back, with the game featuring 28 (deranged) opponents, 11 environments, a career mode with 36 levels and 30 unlockable cars. The app itself is universal and retina-ready, and it’s already optimized for the iPhone 5’s 16:9 display.
The game’s currently FREE today as a way of Stainless Games thanking all the Kickstarter backers who’ve pledged their support toÂ Carmageddon: Reincarnation, the reboot of Carmageddon which is slated for release in Feb 2013. If you’re not the type to be easily offended with running over pedestrians and cows (virtually of course) and dig a solid racing game, be sure to grab this classic for your iDevices while it’s still free.
Â Stainless Games,Â CarmageddonÂ – Free
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 â€œplay it your wayâ€â€¦ Waste all your opponents, kill every pedestrian, or (perish the thought) complete all the laps. Oh and watch out â€“ the cops in their super-tough armoured patrol vehicles are lurking, and if they catch you being bad theyâ€™ll be down on you like several tons of cold pork!
