It’s FREEDAY FRIDAY!

ISLE OF WIGHT, United Kingdom - May 10, 2013 – On this joyous day, fellow FREE FINGS FANS, the iOS and ANDROID version of Carmageddon are FREE! It’s a FREEDAY FRENZY! Yes, it's FRIDAY 10th MAY and the waiting is over.  Today it's the ANDROID ( http://bit.ly/17OkLl7) launch of CARMAGEDDON! OMG WTF DIY SOS etc..!!  And as promised, the full version of the game will be FREE for the entire DAY! For 24 hours only, you can bag yourself the most fun you can have with just your thumbs for NOTHING. NADA. ZILCH. DIDDLY SQUAT. SWEET Fing A. WOO!

And to make FREEDAY FRIDAY a complete FEAST, we’re also offering the iOS VERSION of CARMAGEDDON FREE TOO! Yes, hop on over to the App Store, and you’ll be able to bag a FREE iOS Carma too: iOS Carmageddon http://bit.ly/TtmDWI. WOO!! Could a Friday get any more FRIGGIN’ FANTASTIC? 

Important notice to clarify any issues.

There has also been some discussion as to how we will be handling making the Android version free for the first 24 hours. This will be dealt with in the following way (resulting in 3 versions of the App being available):

  • Carmageddon PROMO – The FULL game for FREE (only available May 10th for 24hrs)
  • Carmageddon – Full game  – The game has in-App purchases to unlock all cars and all tracks.
  • Carmageddon FREE – Demo version of the game
After the first 24 hours of its release, the  PROMO version of the game will be removed from Google Play and will no longer be available. Subsequently, the  PROMO version will be unsupported because we have no way to update the title once it's taken down.

This isn't how we would have wanted to do this but it's the only choice. It's not possible to change an app from free to paid on Google Play. So, in the unlikely event that players experience problems with the  PROMO version, the solution will be to either download the  FREE (demo version) version, or "upgrade" to the  FULL paid version. This will only cost you £1.49 and for that, you'll be getting the full benefit of support and updates for the lifetime of the game. So c'mon now everybody, that's GOT to be more than a fair deal! 

Please note: We're offering the Android version of the game at a lower price (once the paid version kicks in) than the iOS version, due to it having slightly less extended features compared to iOS. Unfortunately it isn't possible to do Action Replay Saving to YouTube on Android devices, and nor could we implement Cloud Saving or Achievements. But apart from these minor omissions, it's the same little package of AWESOME that is out there now for those iThings. So go forth, download, and get SMASHING.

Once again, we'd like to thank you all for your support and your patience while waiting for this port of the greatest little ped massacring mayhem generator to make it onto your ANDROID THINGS. We really hope you love it in all its miniature moo-moo mangling beauty, as much as we do!

About Carmageddon

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. It’s 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 Android phones and tablets!

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 armored patrol vehicles are lurking, and if they catch you being bad they’ll be down on you like several tons of cold pork!

Features:

  • 28 dangerously deranged Opponents
  • 11 wildly exhilarating Environments
  • Career Mode featuring 36 satisfyingly violent Levels
  • Race and Wreck opponents to unlock 30 playable cars!
  • Multiple control methods: digital, analogue (mix ‘n’ match), tilt
  • Edit your control layout in game to your preferences
  • Comprehensive Action Replay System
  • Environment maps and other special effects
  • Enhanced pre-lit environments
  • Buckets of gibs
  • Tons of laughs
  • High resolution and widescreen device support
  • Supports phones and tablets
·         Plus the opportunity to make in app purchases to unlock ALL the cars (apart from the secret one) and ALL the races!

·         Carmageddon requires Android 2.3.4 or later.
