Mobile gaming is going to get ‘crazy,’ all thanks to the publishers at SEGA as they’re bringing back one of the most iconic and exhilarating driving games since the dawn of taxi time. Developed by Hardlight studios, Crazy Taxi: City Rush branches off from the original Crazy Taxi, one of the Dreamcast’s solid gems and PlayStation 2’s greatest port.
With the help of Kenji Kanno on the aesthetics, the game is being made strictly for mobile devices. Players will cruise around the city, picking up passengers and delivering them to their destination — car bumping, ramp jumping and all. What is new about this version is that it will be free-to-play, a route that a lot of mobile game developers have been taking lately.
City Rush also implements Facebook into the equation, as players have the option to link their accounts to the game so that they can pick up their friends during missions. The feature is totally optional, but your inner maniac cab driver will be out of some extra special missions as a result.Players will also get the chance to customize their ride and clean their friends whip to earn some extra goodies in-game.
The game is set to hit all Android and iOS devices pretty soon. In the meantime, you have two choices: check out this trailer below or go download the original Crazy Taxi game on the App Store or Google Play. It’s there, I’m not lying. Go see for yourself.
