Carmageddon (Gizmondo) was a game that was going to be released on the Gizmondo handheld console. It's existence discovered though a copyright application, the game was said to be published by SCi, and developed by Stainless. Unfortunately, when the game was approximately 80-85% complete, it was cancelled due to the unpopular Gizmondo's demise.


The game was a port of the PC original, and a close one at that. The pre-release box art boasts that the graphics were in full 3D, and that the damage model and physics would remain intact. 25 racers would feature, and there would be 36 levels over five locations. The multiplayer mode was to have seven modes and three unique tracks.

A pre-release demo was released to the press, and has subsequently been leaked to the Internet. This rom can be tweaked to become functional on genuine Gizmodo hardware. By analysing the data within, we can see what was planned to be in the game.

The names of the powerups, known as pickups for some reason, are found inside Data\Pickup.txt.

Misc. info

  • The game was loosely based on the original Carmageddon.
  • The developers planned to include all the levels in Carmageddon, but the level files only show a few. This is most likely due to the ROM's pre-release status.
  • This game was often confused with Carmageddon TV, which was another cancelled entry in the franchise.
