Crazy Taxi: City Rush is now taking passengers worldwide on iPhone and iPad
Android version coming 'very soon'
Sega's free to play arcade spin-off Crazy Taxi: City Rush is now available to download worldwide, on iPhone and iPad. Sega says the game is "arriving very soon on Android devices, too".
The game, made by Sonic Dash developer Hardlight and Crazy Taxi creator Kenji Kanno, is an auto-driver where you dart through traffic, drift around corners, and take shortcuts to get your passengers to their destination.
Sure, it's not the game you remember (that's available here, for £2.99 / $4.99). But it's actually quite a lot of fun, and really captures the punchy arcade sensibility and colourful cartoon verve of the original. And it controls better on touch.
There are loads of different micro-sized missions to take on, and you can unlock or buy new bits to customise your cab. The game also has an energy system, but you can borrow a Facebook friend’s car to complete a mission if you run dry.
And while it doesn't have the classic soundtrack of the Dreamcast game, you can make a playlist in iTunes if you simply can't play Crazy Taxi without The Offspring and Bad Religion.
Crazy Taxi: City Rush is now available everywhere on the App Store, for free. Now, take me to Pizza Hut.
