App description: In 2011, the world was coming to an end in Southern California. The overly crowded 405 Freeway was scheduled to be shut down for a full weekend due to a massive construction project. It was predicted that this road closure would bring the entire LA Metropolitan transportation system to its knees. The media organized a massive public information campaign and informed everyone living in Southern California that a 10 mile section of the freeway would be completely closed. As seen by the live aerial coverage of the closure almost everyone was off the 405 Freeway during this time.

However, you and your friends in a rush somehow avoided the thousands of hours of public notices and came upon a CLOSED FOR CONSTRUCTION sign. You and your friends ignored the sign and decided to take a shortcut through the once in a lifetime EMPTY 405 Freeway.

Surely you'll have to change that name very very soon ?

You must know Carmegeddon was a classic game in the 90's and an iOS remake is coming out probably September ! Cant believe you'll be able to keep this name.

(Also Extended is spelt wrong on the screen shots)

Graphics are decent but not the best...looks cool though. Not many people will buy a game that cost $2. Your game better be made on the Unreal Engine and have multiple maps. Otherwise, make it free and put some small ads in it.

This got my hopes up for a minute. So how can a game with an obviously trademark infringing name like this get through the approval process? Can I make a game called Super Mario Galaxy and sell it?

You could do but i'm sure thats the name of 'Emerson Apps' next game

Seriously though even if you havent heard of the original game surely if you were creating a new game and were thinking of names you would google a fair few of them to make sure they werent copyrighted or the names of famous games.

From the screenshots this app looks 'okay' but i wont go near it due to the ridiculous name of this app, dont want to support ones like that. There was that guy the other month who was using famous names for his crappy apps (He called his Metal Slug 2012) when it was nothing to do with the famous game brand. Theres quite a few apps which look like great games but read the description and they mention 'this app features just screenshots, no games', but it fools so many people (Eg theres an arcade app, people thought they were getting lots of games but nope just screenshots).

People will be fooled into buying this thinking its THE Carmegeddon game which is coming out soon. Granted you shouldnt rush and buy without doing a bit of homework but i'm sure some people will buy this accidentally.
