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.
