Carmageddon (Carmageddon: Carpocalypse Now on the title screen) was a top-down 2D vehicle combat game, released for the GameBoy Color handheld platform in 2001. It was developed by Aqua Pacific and published by Interplay. It is based on Carmageddon II.

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay screenshot

There are 8 groups of levels, each containing 3 regular levels and 1 mission level. The aim of the regular levels is to complete the race, running down as many zombies as possible along the way. The player cannot actually damage or waste other racers[confirmation needed] unless the mission requires it, although opponents can damage the player in any level. If time runs out, the player's car will come to a halt then explode.

Due to the limitations of the hardware, the graphics and gameplay elements were downgraded considerably: There are only 4 racers per level, limited information on the HUD, and only 4 powerups.

Characters[edit]

The game features 16 racers, all taken from Carmageddon II. Jenny Taylia is listed as Jetcar, most likely due to Nintendo's censorship policies (She was also renamed in Carmageddon 64).

Compatibility[edit]

This game can also be played on the Game Boy Advance and the Game Boy Advance SP, due to their backwards compatibility support of Game Boy carts. The Game Boy Micro and Nintendo DS line do not support Game Boy carts.
