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!

AWARDS AND RECOGNITION FOR THE ORIGINAL GAME
Carmageddon won the “Game of the Year” trophy in the 1997 PC Zone Reader awards. Carmageddon 1 & 2 were “Driving Game of the Year” 1997/1998.
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.
What's New in Version 1.7
- In race MFI controller support (please note that menus must still be navigated with the touch screen controls).
- You can now save your favourite Action Replay videos to your device and share them to other Social Media.
Garbage like it's always been
I'm not going to waste too much time here, yours or mine. This is the stupid man's GTA, albeit with worse graphics and the worst f'ing controls ever. Never will you find such a frustrating experience of trying to run over a pedestrian, crash into a car, or simply just trying to actually race and complete one friggin lap! Trying to perform anything more than going in straight line results in a spin out. The repetitive sprites of bloody bodies get old after your first speed bump, and the miraculous AI does a great job of killing itself. You could literally just let your car sit their and perform the repairs only, your opponents will kill themselves, as well as the pedestrians; they'll just run into your car like a cow walking into a butcher shop.
Delete this trash. Horrible game in the 90s, why not remake something like the quake series or half life? Hell, need for speed 3, hot pursuit, all of the old GTA games. What a waste of a developer's efforts.
Carmageddon 2 was one of the few games that would take advantage of my 3Dfx card I bought for my Mac. The physics took a while to get used to, but when I did, the game was awesome! I think I'll be playing this one for a while.
Update: well I was wrong. I deleted this shortly after buying it because I couldn't get used to the touch controls, which is a common thing for me. But to my surprise, an update came out that added MFi controller support. And it's great! I look forward to other Carmageddon games on iOS.
Faithful to the original
It looks like they've finally fixed the in-App Purchases, but it would've been nice if their support team acknowledged that (I sent emails, and since no response, Apple provided a refund, but I was dating to try it again with their latest update) or at least in the updated version's release notes (not even mentioned). What I did notice is that I lost all my game progress across all devices with this update. I guess you win some, you lose some.
Spent countless hours playing it on the PC, it's good to relive those old days on my iPhone or my iPad.
