In today’s world of technology nothing is free, but when talking about promotions for iOS and Android titles, a classic ultra-violent, PC game that debuted in 1997 has been thrown out of the window, for some of the very best apps – Cut the Rope, Fruit Ninja and even Angry Birds – made available for the five-finger discount at some point that time. Now, yet another popular classic title Carmageddon, which has just landed on iOS, released to the list of titles to hol;d a promotional freeware, and that you can download your free copy right now over at the iTunes App Store.
Carmageddon is one of most popular classical arcade racing game inspired by the 1975 cult classic movie Death Race 2000, and of course it won the “Game Of The Year” trophy in 1997, and was the “Driving Game Of The Year” in 1997 and 1998. Ring any bells?
The legendary carnage racing game “Carmageddon” now hits iOS App Store, which won many recognition and awards, earning its notoriety for graphical violence stemming from the carnage concept; been among the most downloaded of all time, the title pulling of the heart-strings of those sentimental gamers are those which existed on platforms prior to iOS, Android et al. Carmageddon was banned around the world, which only helped fuel its popularity. But, it’s been a pretty enthralling (if a little gruesome) title involving lots of automobiles and even more twisted, broken bones.
The classic titles main objective is to run people over, makes a title such as Grand Theft Auto look like a kids’ playdate. The locals stay out on the streets at their peril and you run over or smash into them with your automotive killing machine. To be said for breaking the law in a fictitious environment, and just as I like causing mayhem on GTA, We admit to loving a little Carmageddon to release the fiction.
It’s gone free as a thank-you to those whom supported the game’s development when it was a mere Kickstarter pipe-dream, and now it’s a good time as any to download it via the link provided below. Developers say nothing has been changed in the iPhone and iPad version to appease Apple’s censors.
But, if you want to unlock all the cars (apart from secret one) and all the races, you can do it via an in-app purchase. Carmageddon was originally produced by Stainless Games and published by the Interplay and SCi.
