Carmageddon coming to Android this summer

Ready for some controversial, pedestrian-smashing fun? Carmageddon for mobile devices has been officially announced and pegged for a summer release. The game has been banned in numerous countries due to its careless style of gameplay.

It’s not as if pedestrians haven’t been in the way of harm on other games — GTA and Saints Row are notorious for this — but there’s something about its ban in certain countries that brings out the wild, curious side in someone.

It’s a PC port that won’t look much better than when it originally released save for high resolution graphics, but for a mobile game you’ll probably be fine with it — especially since it’ll be free for a short period when it first launches. Watch the trailer above.

      I did as well. Much better than going on the site and much easier to post comments from my phone.

    One of my favorite games as well. Carmageddon II on my Voodoo 2 P2 266 mhz system was the BOMB! LOL. I played that thing for years. Nothing beats running straight after the dump truck with my spring loaded…. ahhhh!!!!
