Carmageddon mobile is already available on Android and this update will also be available on that platform shortly along with the price change.

Wow... This is so generous of you guys! I don't know what I can say without sounding corny or without sounding like I'm suspecting a catch for the weird generosity. Just...thanks! I'll be patiently waiting for the Android price change.

@feralkid - like legomeaker said, I've only seen one place "adverts" are shown in it and that's when you start the app, those are also entirely fake adverts which all lead to the Max Damage website and are really no different from the news "adverts" which its shown for ages. It's not like they're putting ads in all over the game and it's not even like they're doing it for ad revenue, they're just linking to their other Carmageddon game.

@lemonrev - do you mean "free to play"? Pay to play is what it originally was, where you pay a certain amount up front and get the whole game without limits.

Free to play specifically is used for the business model of having a game as free and limiting play and progress based on various types of in-game currency and such which the game would then encourage you to spend real money to buy more of. This isn't anything like that, it is just free.

It's awesome news for anyone who didn't have it yet and I suspect the reason is because they are gearing up to release a new mobile game of some kind and putting C1 as free would be great marketing tool to get more people into the franchise :)

Nothings changed with how people will play the game. The same IAP's to purchase all cars and unlock tracks are still there since the first version of the game and the advert in the intro sequence has always been there. It will be used to advertise our own products and point people to visit our websites so it will always be relevant to Carma fans.

What the hell is wrong with people these days. As far as I can see nothing has changed. Even if it had, however, it's a f*cking business, I mean just IMAGINE stainless wanted to make a sh*t load of money from carmageddon, who would have thought?!

All I see is people bitching and moaning about Carmageddon Reincarnation / Max Damage and now Carma Mobile. It's free. FREE. F*ck sake give the guys a break.

As a PC gamer, I happen to enjoy C:R and I'm excited for C:MD. Do people need to take it any more seriously than 'it's a computer game'.

I was just a bit shocked when I saw it and genuinely thought it went free to play. Sorry about that.

I think it was more due to the fact that I lost my save progress which I am really pissed about.

Maybe I can forgive 'Stainless' if they first of all, fix the bug that erases all my saves every time I quit the game.

And second, give me an option to remove ads. I gladly pay for it. Please!!!

I don't play games with ads. (Yes. I really hate ads)

Yes. And every damn time I press the X I get sent to a website!

Either because the X is so damn small it is nearly impossible to press it. Or because the ad itself is broken and the X doesn't actually do anything.

And don't you tell me to "get over it" when the solution is so simple it would be stupid to ignore it!

Let people who hate ads get rid of them via IAP. And people who don't mind ads can still play the game for free. It's a win-win-win for all consumers and 'Stainless'.

The recent iOS update hosed all of my saves as well.

I wouldn't mind starting over... if it were with the Splat Pack.

Or Carma 2.
