Earlier this morning, Eli and I spent some time with the iPhone and iPad version of the 1997 "cult" classic Carmageddon [$0.99]. For the most part, it appears to be a straight-up port with just a few modern visual and technical tweaks and trimmings. As a result, it looks like an old game and it feels like one, too. Check your expectations at the door.
Carmageddon, for those of you not in the loop, is a free-form racing game where you're rewarded points for killing civilians. The goal of each race isn't necessarily to come in first place, but to cause the most... destruction as possible. It's weird like that.
Nostalgia is powerful, so we encourage any of the series' fans to give this a shot. If you're unfamiliar, check out this video and see if the game clicks with you:
