Back in March, SEGA Networks announced the development of Crazy Taxi: City Rush for iOS. Now, the big release day has arrived and players can jump behind the wheel of their very own taxi, speeding through city streets causing mayhem, all in the name of dropping off patrons as fast as possible.
Crazy Taxi: City Rush comes from SEGA’s Hardlight Studios, alongside Kenji Kanno, the creator of the original Crazy Taxi arcade game. While the control scheme has been streamlined for mobile devices, the game also retains the chaos of the original experience. Players complete missions by picking up patrons and dropping them off across town before time runs out, but completing those tasks will test players’ reflexes along the way.

Earlier this month, Helsinki-based mobile developer Grand Cru released Supernauts on iOS devices. The game, which asks players to rebuild Earth in outer space, was a fast success, passing over one million downloads in its first six days on the market.
Combining Minecraft-esque material collection and world-building with puzzle solving, Supernauts has clearly struck a chord with mobile gamers around the world.

Mobile developer TapZen has thrown down the gauntlet, bringing its first title, This Means War!, to iOS devices with a simple goal: to dominate the mid-core strategy games space on smartphones and tablets.
