The classic ultraviolent racing game Carmageddon [App Store] has been resurrected on the iPhone and iPad following a tremendously successful Kickstarter campaign.
Stainless Games, the original developer of Carmageddon, is still in business and recently bought back all the rights to the game -- with the help of a Kickstarter campaign that raised $625,000, the game is back. The firm plans to bring it to Windows, Mac and Linux in the coming months, as well.
The game is absurdly violent, but in an animated, slightly ridiculous way. For today only, Carmageddon is offered free as a thank you to the game's Kickstarter backers.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!
Carmageddon is available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]
