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

SELECTED REVIEWS OF THE ORIGINAL GAME
Originally released for the PC in 1997, Carmageddon was an instant hit and the titles went on to sell over 2 million copies worldwide. Here’s what a sample of the gaming press thought at the time:
“Carmageddon is visceral, violent, vehicular fun...” - GameSpot 8.8 out of 10
“Carmageddon, to get straight to the point, is one of the best computer games I've ever played… Carmageddon is God!” - Duncan McDonald 95% Classic Award PC Zone Magazine
“Carmageddon is one of those games that only come along once in a blue moon. An essential purchase.” - Escape Magazine 6 out of 6
“The gameplay is spot on and anyone with a dark enough sense of humour should give it a go.” - Computer Gaming World 4 out of 5
“So next time you gun down coppers on GTA VI, just remember, Carmageddon’s controversy was there first, and you have a lot to thank it for.” - RetroGarden
ABOUT STAINLESS GAMES
Stainless was founded in 1994 by Patrick Buckland, a veteran of the games industry going back to the Jurassic period of 1982, and Neil Barnden, who used to have hair like a mammoth. A team of 8 worked on the original Carmageddon at Stainless, and 5 are still with the company today, although a couple of them are now kept manacled in a small padded room in the cellar.
Stainless Games now employs well over fifty mad, dedicated people of assorted gender, height and width. They can all be found dangling precariously from a small chalky rock just off the South Coast of England.
Even though this game is heavily censored it is still not suitable for children!
NB: Why is there a censored version at all? Because on small screens the enemies are much easier to distinguish when they are clearly color coded and less detailed. This visually "works" best when they are "puppets" in stead of "people". (A compromise to hopefully improve playability).
Help North Korean commissar Kim Bok Kyong punish the traitors!
Command a firing squad of 4 soldiers and process endless waves of various enemies of the state to keep the Divine Leader happy.
Faced with limited ammo and the ever present danger of random sabotage events, you have to think and react fast. As you progress you'll gain reward money, replenish your ammo and unlock more and more weapons.
Which strategy will you use? Will you be able to handle increasingly difficult decisions? Hesitation means death - for your enemies are legion.
"Joyful Executions" is a parody game on North Korean propaganda for children and a satire on our willingness to accept morally questionable acts through gamification.
Chris Priestman from IndieStatik:
"[Joyful Executions] questions what we understand of games, and does so while challenging volatile politics, arguing for a stance and encouraging the player to engage in debate. Not only that, but it’s been realized to an incredible-looking finish."
GameWoof score: 4 out of 5:
"A controversial piece of art banned from iTunes, leaves the player with a feeling perhaps unique to video games. ...If you are mature enough, this game is worth playing. It is fun, controversial and affects you in a way most games cannot".
- Round based single player endless survival game.
- 4 types of enemies.
- 5 weapons (more coming after release)
- Upgrade shop for restocking ammo, buying new weapons and upgrading your weapons.
- Optional survivor head shot mini game.
- North Korea propaganda poster art style
NB: The final 4 weapons are not yet implemented. You will face severe challenges to survive from round 40 and onward. All missing weapons will be patched in.
This game is adapted for smartphones.
It's been extensively tested only on a Samsung Galaxy II.
Natively supported: 1280x720 and 800x480, all other resolutions should scale reasonably well, but will probably look like crap. If you're having any problems with the scaling, please let me know (and send me a screenshot)!
