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 Mac & PC 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 OF THE ORIGINAL GAME
Originally released for the PC in 1997, Carmageddon was an instant hit and the titles went on to sell over 2 million copies worldwide. Here’s what a sample of the gaming press thought at the time:
“Carmageddon is visceral, violent, vehicular fun...” - GameSpot 8.8 out of 10
“Carmageddon, to get straight to the point, is one of the best computer games I've ever played… Carmageddon is God!” - Duncan McDonald 95% Classic Award PC Zone Magazine
“Carmageddon is one of those games that only come along once in a blue moon. An essential purchase.” - Escape Magazine 6 out of 6
“The gameplay is spot on and anyone with a dark enough sense of humour should give it a go.” - Computer Gaming World 4 out of 5
“So next time you gun down coppers on GTA VI, just remember, Carmageddon’s controversy was there first, and you have a lot to thank it for.” - RetroGarden
ABOUT STAINLESS GAMES
Stainless was founded in 1994 by Patrick Buckland, a veteran of the games industry going back to the Jurassic period of 1982, and Neil Barnden, who used to have hair like a mammoth. A team of 8 worked on the original Carmageddon at Stainless, and 5 are still with the company today, although a couple of them are now kept manacled in a small padded room in the cellar.
Stainless Games now employs well over fifty mad, dedicated people of assorted gender, height and width. They can all be found dangling precariously from a small chalky rock just off the South Coast of England.

Almost a perfect port
I was addicted to this game back in the 90's-enough so to purchase the "splat pack" a d the abysmal Carmagdeon 2. This is a -near perfect port, though 2 minor issues hamper the game. They might seem minor, but they drastically alter the gameplay. First-no rear-view mirror. Considering the AI ignores the track to hunt you down, this is a curious omission.
More importantly, there needs to be a way to keep the the map visible at all times. As it is, it's nearly impossible to "splat" all pedestrians-even to finish a race, without such a feature.
If these were both both possible on a a pre-3d accelerated Pc, they should be possible on, at the least, an ipad mini retina retina or an Air.
Still-4 stars for a near pixel-perfect port.
Awesome Classic, Smooth Controls
As a fan of Twisted Metal growing up, I wanted to get back to the roots of the demolition genre. I had heard about Carmageddon for some time but never had a chance to play it. After seeing it available on the App Store, I knew I had to have it. It's not just a great game, it's a fun game, and that's what makes the difference here. For only a dollar. Smooth controls and a great way to experience a classic. It's a win win. Definitely hope to play the new one coming out on PC, once I get a good one of course.
Old but still good
Ignore the blotchy graphic artifacts and repetitive annoying character with Tourette's syndrome, and you have a fantastically playable age old classic. Release those destructive road rage impulses in the safety of your home. Touch controls and responsive design make this game worthwhile, and the cartoonish violence makes it palatable rather than tasteless and gory. Make no mistake, it is still offensive in content and subjects, but what game worth playing is not. Very little to update or fix here, it may loose its appeal to most if it were just another high resolution, hyper realistic modern monstrosity.
