Time to earn your taxi drivers license. Follow the instructor and drive safe in order to get your ticket to a new job.


The crashing sound is TERRIFYING.
This is really fun and nice, though.

Games like these are the reason (and another reason) why I don't drive

Hey fogNG it's a good taxi driving game but the taxi lacks controle (ever your driving slowly and then it hard to stear or ever your driving too fast and you need too slow right down or stop)

Okay, some parts are really well designed and others are horrifying. To start, the game needs a working preloader. Probably lose many views and cost you ratings with it the way it is now. Also, the "start game" button is oddly placed, as though to encourage mistaken visits to website. Slightly enraging.

Next, the controls are really sloppy. The car is frustrating to control, and feels cramped and unexciting. However, I do really like the animations for the car rocking to and fro when it moves. Pretty cool detail. However, the 3D guy is ugly, and so is the title screen. Good looking levels are cars, though.
I agree with others that some of the sounds are either dull or just too grating.

Now, speaking of the levels, it is annoying to get almost to the finish line or target parking spot only to bump ever so slightly into a wall for an instant "GAME OVER". Perhaps there should be an acceptable threshold for car damage due to crashes based on speed or what you hit or whatever.

okay, so...out of 10...

gfx - 9 (great cars)
sfx - 4 (grating sounds, also needs music)
design - 6 (frustrating to start over)
gameplay - 7 (taxi controls feel sluggish)

Well, the game its self is ok at best but it should be improved on. The graphics are ok and better than some(animation was smooth so kudoos for that) but the handing of the car was laggy and also very stiff. The gameplay wasn't very enjoyable since the only sounds you got were from the cars and the go and game over sounds, but what really made it stale was the lack of music in the game and it became boring really quickly. Also maybe you should have implemented a "live bar" as it is very difficult with the handling to get across the lanes with the steering wheel readjusting that slow and running you into a sidewalk. But overall an ok game by my standards.
