Crazy Taxi Motors onto Android, Charges You $4.99 for the Ride

“Transport back to 2000″ is the promise that SEGA is making to us by releasing the Dreamcast classic, Crazy Taxi, out on Android today. Anyone who owned a game console or walked into an arcade in 2000 knows what Crazy Taxi is. The game puts you in the shoes of an over-the-top cab driver who breaks almost every law in the traffic book to get their passenger to their destination as fast as possible. 

The game features Arcade mode for shorter playtimes or Original mode to let you play for a little bit longer. SEGA has optimized the game for today’s mobile processors and screens, while also adding in two different control modes. You can either steer by touch, or by turning your tablet/smartphone like a steering wheel. Throwing in new mini-games and the ability to listen to your own music playlists while driving, SEGA hopes to justify the $4.99 price tag that this app comes with.

If you are looking to relive the old classic though, hit the link below and brush up on your driving skills.

    Good deal, even though I still have a Dreamcast, and this game.
    Although, Sega Bass Fishing with the fishing rod controller is the best.

      Training chaos was the best…except when your battery died and you had to start over.

      Soul Calibur ftmfw. Power Stone 2 is pretty awesome, as well. Time to bust out the old Dreamcast.

    WOW Flashback! I had the Dreamcast and that game! That was the bomb!

    Lol this game has been re-re-re-released and yet still has the same outdated graphics

    As much as I loved this on my Dreamcast, I played it recently and it just doesn’t hold up. I’m curious if they removed the Tower Records for the mobile version though.

    I used to play this at the arcade just for the soundtrack!

    Amazing! Just bought all of the Sonic games when they were $.99. Love it!

  • Mughal MAB

    I still have Dreamcast console and this game with me. They both are alive….

  • Thomas

    I have no problem paying $5 for this. Great game. Thanks Eric ;)

  • litobirdy

    $5 does seem a little steep. I’d say $3 or less

      lol. This is why we get a bad rap on the Android side. Granted, I’m not buying it either, mostly because it’s 5 bucks.

      Hmm…maybe we are cheap mofo’s ‘:-(

      • Blue Sun

        Maybe because we buy phones more often than others.

    Tempting, but I feel like I’ve given Sega too much money recently.

      One can not ever give SEGA enough money.
