Carmageddon Arrives Early on Google Play, Go Get That Promo Version


Looks like someone got a little impatient and decided to push Carmageddon to Google Play a full day early. Packed with violent road rage and an amazing soundtrack (yes, Fear Factory is present), you can grab the game for free during the first 24 hours. After that, the game is $1.99 to new players. 

As a reminder, after the promo version reaches its time, it will be removed from Google Play and to receive updates and new content, you’ll need to get the paid version.

Do I need to say more? Go get it!

Play Link: Promo | Paid ($1.99)


Cheers Mike Then (Lucky Armpit)!

    This game had me up WAY too late last night. LOL! Runs/looks fantastic on my N7.

    It’s just as awsome as the original that I bought for my PC back in the 90’s. Too bad they didn’t upgrade the start-up video to HD, though. I remember it looking so cool on my old video tube display, but not so cool on my GNex.

    For $2~ it’s worth every cent. I didn’t even waste my time with the promo. Took a gamble based on current reviews on Google Play at the time and no regrets what so ever.

    The lengths people will go through to avoid paying a developer a measly $2 is ridiculous.

      “The lengths people will go”

      You mean clicking the promo link versus clicking the paid link?

    Anyone know if the cheatcodes still work? (;

    • Pallav

      I tried entering cheatcodes using both, GameKeyboard as well as a bluetooth keyboard, without any success. Or maybe I’m doing it wrong. 🙁

      • SterlingPhoenix

        Haha, I’m glad you tried, saves me the trouble (: I guess I’ll have to steal that police car fair and square… just have to remember which map that was possible on.

  • Wesley Howarth

    Fear Factory….I’m in. Hopefully I don’t edgecrusher my car.

    I know what I ‘m doing tonight!

  • Guest

    Sweet, since they are pushing two versions I hope they have figured out how to handle future updates. Once they remove the promo version

    • nick rigsby

      No, they haven’t…. the promo/free version will not be updated. I believe just the regular demo, and the full paid version

  • yodatom10

    it should be mentioned that the promo version will be receiving no updates or support and will be yanked from the play store after 24hrs

  • EvanTheGamer

    HELL YEAH! Thanks, Tim/D-L, for the heads up!!

    • Lucky Armpit

      It plays great on my Razr Maxx and I *hope* it’s compatible with my Asus TF101. I got chills when I saw the intro, music intact, just like it was all those years ago on my 3DFx-powered Pentium-166. As long as I don’t run into any issues, I will DEFINITELY/GLADLY be giving Stainless $1.99.

      • PhoenixPath

        Yup, I had forgotten how awesome that intro is.

        Stupid pedestrians… 😀

        • Lucky Armpit

          Lol awesome. It’s a tiny bit sluggish on my Asus TF101 but not enough to take away from the experience. I came home from work last night to find that my wife downloaded it on her iSheep pad. She screamed to me, “I FOUND THE STADIUM AND I’VE GOT BOUNCY-BOUNCY!” She splattered a football player and held both of her arms over her head and yelled, “YES!” What can I say… I’m a lucky guy. 🙂

          • PhoenixPath

            I am officially jealous. My wife just rolled her eyes at me…

            Does play great on both my One and N10, though. 🙂

  • Detonation

    What happens to the promo version after tomorrow? Are they just going to pull it from the market, meaning you’ll have to buy the paid version to get updates (or to reinstall if you didn’t backup)?

    • The promo version disappears and if you want updates and new stuff, you’ll need to buy it.

      • Jason Kahn

        I guess it’s almost like a free Demo that doesn’t expire, but will never be updated. Not a bad I wish more developers did this.

        • BuLLg0d

          It used to be called Shareware on PC’s back in the day, same difference…

    • Lucky Armpit

      Yes, they will pull the Promo version from the Market after 24 hours. The Promo version is the fully-functional version of the game but it won’t receive updates and fixes going forward.
