App description: 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. Its 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 theyll 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. Heres 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, Carmageddons 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.

Great stuff ! I'm away thursday so would have missed this game in the UK till the following day. Looking forward to downloading this at midnight tonight !

Top marks to the dev for adding different controls and also ones which can be customised. So frustrating when a dev just adds one set of controls.

I just want to understand the financial logic behind the move.
