When it comes to classic driving games, it’s hard not to think of Crazy Taxi. The game, which brought its arcade-style gameplay to home consoles with its release for the ill-fated Dreamcast in 1999, is far from the typical racer or simulation. If you are feeling nostalgic (or, in many cases, are too young to even remember Crazy Taxi), here’s your chance to again rack up fares careening around stylistically rendered city streets. Crazy Taxi is available today as a free download for Android and iOS devices.
The release coincides with Sega’s announcement that we can soon expect a mobile-based sequel entitled Crazy Taxi: City Rush. The freemium game will take the original gameplay of Crazy Taxi and update it with improved graphics, customizable cabs, and expanded environments. No specific release date was revealed for the game, but it should be arriving very soon.
