Stainless Games unveils the iOS and Android versions of the original Carmageddon, and rewards Kickstarter Backers and Fans with free download offer.
AppleStainless Games today announced that the original classic "points for pedestrians" driving game Carmageddon will launch in the summer of 2012 on iOS and Android. Gamers around the world will soon have Carmageddon in the palm of their hands!
And as a way of saying a massive Thank You to their Backers on Kickstarter.com for funding their forthcoming brand new PC title Carmageddon: Reincarnation through a successful campaign on the crowd-sourced funding site, Stainless Games will be launching the iOS version of the game FREE on the iTunes Store for the first 24 hours after launch – so that Backers and Fans can enjoy the mobile touch-screen Carmageddon experience at NO COST!
The game is a conversion of the original Carmageddon PC game, with improved game engine and graphics. Fully optimized for mobile devices, Carmageddon features include:
- A wide selection of touch control methods.
- Intuitive gesture system allowing repair and recovery of the player vehicle in game.
- Action Replay allowing players to save a movie and upload it to YouTube.
- Game Center integration on iOS.
- Universal app.
Game Center integration brings Achievements and Leaderboards to Carmageddon for the very first time. How much higher than your friends’ can your pedestrian count rise? Who’s pulled off the most Cunning Stunts? Now you’ll know!
“To get Carmageddon working on these new devices, and looking the best it’s ever looked, is just fantastic. And what’s more, I’m now finally able to play Carmageddon on the toilet!” said Stainless co-founder and Executive Director Neil Barnden.
“Carmageddon on a mobile is the most fun you can have with your thumbs,” said Patrick Buckland, co-founder of Stainless Games. “And as a way of saying THANKS to our fantastic Kickstarter Backers for their amazing support, we’re going to launch Carmageddon on the App Store FREE for the first 24 hours!”
“Always remember – look both ways before crossing…” he added, “Particularly if you’re playing Carmageddon on your mobile at the same time…”
Carmageddon will be made available to download on app stores across the globe this Summer.
Pledges for the new game, Carmageddon: Reincarnation, on PC are still rising, with it looking likely the studio will make its first “stretch goal” of $600,000 (to fund Mac and Linux versions of the game), and head on towards the further stretch goals for special PratCam and Co-Op Multiplayer features to be added.
