We often find ourselves hooked on classics here within the quasi-futuristic confines of the Life of Android office, so when we get wind of another old console favourite being geared up to get the Google OS treatment we tend to get a bit over-excited. Hence, when word reached the artificially enhanced ear of the LOA supercomputer today that Sega was dusting down all-time Dreamcast driving classic Crazy Taxi, excitement levels were measured as easily surpassing ‘Child at Christmas’ and nudging disturbingly into ‘Unnatural’.
Yes, Crazy Taxi, the only game ever devised that encourages you to behave like a cab driver, minus the casual racism and occasional hooker murder, as you pilot your big yellow taxi around the access-all-areas streets of somewhere not completely unlike San Francisco at full pelt, hurtling over hills, tearing up the tarmac and petrifying your passengers to deliver them to their destination before time is up.
Already released onto iOS, the Android equivalent is said to be directly on its tail, bringing with it in the boot the game’s original punk-rock soundtrack in all its glory… and we can’t wait.
Standby for news on a release date (followed by a full review) which, we’ve been assured by the Crazy Taxi rank office, is on its way… nearly here… in fact, its actually just round the corner from us now…
