If there are two things that go together like peas and carrots, it's fast cars and killing people. In a virtual world, that is. We don't condone the killing of actual people here at Android Police.

If these are two things that you just can't get enough of, though, then the upcoming remake of the 90's classic Carmageddon is sure to put a smile on your face. It certianly did mine.

Like most games of this type, Carmageddon was quite the controversial title back in the mid 90's, when the world saw the first installment. Past that, there were a couple sequels to the title, namely Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse Now (1998) and Carmageddon TDR 2000 (2000).

This modern remake is slated to be coming to mobile devices (iOS and Android) later this summer from game development firm Stainless Games. The game will be accompanied by the original expansion pack, which was lovingly called the Splat Pack.

Just hearing the words "splat pack" make me excited, so I'm definitely looking forward to the game.

    I can't wait for the well designed iOS version and the poorly-performing iOS-port Android version that they did as an afterthought. I really can't wait.

      Well the best part of playing it on the iPhone is that luxurious 3.5" display. If you have really small hands you might be able to fit both your thumbs on the controls at the same time.

    You have no idea how fucking HAPPY I am right now!!!  Carmageddon is my all time favorite game ever. I have been waiting for a reboot for consoles but it looks like that isn't gonna happen so I will take this. I would buy an iPad just for this game.

    Awesome...I loved the animations in the PC version. When you played cat and mouse with a pedestrian, they'd back up slowly whimpering "No...no....no" heh heh. This game will bring out your inner sadist.

    holy crap i want this so bad, i was 11 when this game first came out, and i played the crap out of it, was definitely my favorite game back then, i even still have my original cd-rom for it!! (though it doesnt work too well with these new high speed computers) and i got into metal music because of the awesomeness of the instrumental Fear Factory songs it had on it, Demanufacture was the first metal album i ever bought

    No Way!!!!  I just peed my pants with excitement

  • CaibreGreyblade

    ...oh yes.!

    This news is slightly incorrect.

    First of all the game is not inspired by the movie "Death Race".  Carmageddon has many years over the movie.

    Secondly, the remake "Carmaggedon: Reincarnation" is not being remade for mobile devices.  Carmaggedon: Reincarnation is an entirely ground-up brand new game which is the sequel to the original Carmageddon.  The original game, is in fact the game being ported to mobile devices.

      You may be correct on the latter point (I misread the facts - it is indeed a remake of the original).

      However, the game was inspired by the original Death Race from 1975 (called Death Race 2000), not the newer Grindhouse film.
