For those who don’t know Carmageddon; this was a very popular (and often baned) racing game for the PC (and later PowerPC).
The main goal of the game: race a track within a given time frame. The time frame offered was super short though. To “buy” extra time you’d try to trash your racing opponents or … (as political wrong as it can be) run over pedestrians and/or cows.
After about 15 years it’s now available again! Woohoo!
The first released version is for iOS (Apple devices) but a Windows version is expected early 2013. MacOS, Linux, and Android versions are expected as well.
The reincarnation of Carmageddon was possible through a so called crowd source service Kickstarter.com.
The iOS version plays very well on both iPhone and iPad (I tried it on an iPhone 4S and a 3rd gen iPad), some screenshots of my iPhone can be found below.
The old game was controlled by simple keys like the arrow keys and the space bar (and some extra keys for extra fun). On the iOS devices paddles are displayed to control your car (left bottom: steer left or right, right bottom: handbrake, accelerate or brake).
