Race to the checkpoints as fast as possible while dodging bystanders.
Use Left/Right to switch lanes, Up/Down to control speed, and SpaceBar to jump.

(Crazy Cabbie)^2 !
This game is so much fun. All of the things I hate about crazy cabbie have vanished (Terrible Sound, Cars speed based on yours, Horrible collision detection when jumping, awkward and rigid controls, etc)! And even beyond that the graphics (especially the grass however weird it is to say) have got a major overhaul. I especially love how you can get multiple speed boosts and go like 300mph although I always crash when I'm going that fast. I like the variety in cars as well, it seems a lot more immersive that way.

Overall the game design is roughly the same, but everything about it (at least to me) seems 5x better than crazy cabbie. I'm so glad this was created. If games like this were to never exist, I doubt the game industry would have anything good at this point. It's not the most innovative game in the world, but holy **** does it improve on the original! 5/5 for sure.

First Impressions:

This game isn't in English...

During Gameplay / Reviewing as I play through:

(Title Screen) No options really. Either play, click on a link to on eof the people credited, or turn the sound off. Not much in the way of options, which isn't the best idea. Graphically, the car looks like it was rushed heavily. More detail on the car would be great. The wheels of the car show the most lack in detail. It doesn't appear as though either wheel that is shown to the player has any sense of shadows.

(Instructions screen) It's good to have your instructions right before you play. Smart.

(In game) It's Crazy Taxi or Crazy Cabby remade... except worse. The game feels slower; the controls, no matter how simple it is, is hard to use. Trying to jump over a car was atrocious. The fact that you can just ram into cars to destroy them is an interesting change, but getting hit by a car anyways will lower your speed drastically and kill atleast 2 seconds.

Overall:

Bad. The only difference between this and Crazy Cabby is the name, the cars, and the way you destroy other cars.

0.5 / 5. Un-original.

This is just a cheap knock off of Crazy taxi that's already on the Internet. The only thing that's different about this game is this game has a speed booster and even if you hit someone you don't have to slow down to jump over them.


JoUBG responds:

Interesting reaction. ;)
Try this: Play my game for FIVE minutes, then instead of using memory, go actually PLAY crazy taxi... A reasonable time-frame for comparison would be nice. Yes the game mechanic is very similar, but to say this is a 'cheap knock off' is absurd. Your memory is tricking you. Objectively speaking: the sound, gameplay, and graphics are all improved.

Nothing new but pretty fun. Jump needs to be a little tighter though.

Feels about right for me, do you ever have FPS problems with flash games on newgrounds? (Some ads are cpu intensive on here) it could just be a difference in preference though, I might quicken it a bit.

After staring at the screen for a long time, I will start to get really dizzy...


JoUBG responds:

Trust me, I know ^_^ I went through about 100 versions of this thing so I've looked at it a ton :P~
