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

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.
- Improvements to the stability of the game.
- Made adverts less intrusive (we only show ads for Carmageddon Crashers)
Ratings and Reviews
One of the greatest games of all time aside from the excessive violence
On one hand I am happy to see this game is back and playable on so many different platforms, pc, pad, smart phone etc... on the other I wonder why there isn’t an option to remove the excessive violence. I wish they would release a reverse Carmageddon version that was kid friendly where you lose points if you hit people. In the past they had at least changed the color of the blood to green to make the people and animals be more like zombies but in this version they went back to red blood. The game play is better then on the old pc version and they have touched up bits and pieces to make it more user friendly. It would be amazing if they could improve the graphics a little and add some of the cars from their new game Crashers. It feels like the game has fewer bugs then on the pc and the cars do not get stuck as much. Over all the quality of the game has definitely improved.
Latest update deleted all my progress, I could cry
Update to my earlier review, April 16th: I’ve dropped this game down to 1 star. In addition to its habit of wiping my progress with every update, it now shows unskippable adverts for some crummy MMORPG game after every race. Way to antagonize your customers, guys. I have no interest in that type of game and having adverts forced in front of me just makes me see red. Why do the Marketing team always have to ruin anything good?
Previous review: Excellent game. Over many months I have managed to complete every single race on all 3 difficulty levels, unlocking all the cars (even the extra Police one).
Installed the latest update tonight and all my progress has been wiped out. Back to "new game as guest". I am seriously infuriated and despondent. Don't these people ever TEST their software before release?
Finally I’m able to play carmageddon again. My friends and all were addicted to this game back when I had it for pc. First friend I got addicted to the original was the person to point out the iOS port. Thanks for porting it so well to iOS!! Keep it coming!
