Gameplay- Simple maze-like game with timed levels that can keep someone interested for some time. 8/10

Memory- when I first looked at this game I saw the filesize and nearly killed myself from looking at the huge size. I doubted that the calc even had that much memory. But when i looked at the file inside I was calmed down. Turns out it was filled with many help menus and screenshots. The actual game doesn't take that up that much size and is approved. 10/10

Creativity- ... I kind of expected a birds eye view of a car driving down the street and going around a huge city but this isn't really that creative. No city is a smallish maze. 4/10

File- Expansive help and readme menus with detailed screenshots that can help view the game before playing really adds more to this program. 10/10

Graphics- WHAT IS UP WITH THE CONTRAST! The beginning screen is beautifully executed but then it locks on a very dark screen and you can't see much. I can't really judge graphics on a this game since it's only a maze. 2/10

Controls- User friendly controls that aren't very hard to recognize. 10/10

Overall- Nice try but needs to fix those small things that bring this game down.

Suggestions:

  • The beginning screen takes too much time to roll in.
  • Needs a selection of drivers just like the game.

I hope this game gets an update.

Crazy Taxi is a great, short, and fast game. It has pretty nice menus and the graphics aren't too bad.

Gameplay: 7/10

The gameplay wasn't too bad. It was fun for a bit but can get repetitive and boring.

Graphics: 6/10

Awesome intro and really nice menus. The graphics in-game aren't too bad as well. The only bad thing about this game is that the contrast level is really low and you can hardly see anything unless you look at the calc at a certain angle.

Playability: 4/10

This isn't a game that you play over and over again in one sitting, but it does make a fun game to play every now and then. There aren't any bugs that I faced so far.

Overall: 5/10

Although not the best, this game is somewhat fun and can be enjoyed. It could be improved a bit and the contrast level could be fixed.

This game isn't all that bad; it can be fun to play for a little while. I had fun with it in transit between campuses. The author of this game seems to have coding skills and I would like to see other games from him - maybe for the RPG genre.

Gameplay 6/10
There isn't too much to it. It can be fun for a while, though. I have a bias because these types of games aren't my favorite genre; that needs to be taken into account as well.

Graphics 7/10
Great Title screen and menus

Implementation 8/10
It was implemented well, but a little big for the amount of gameplay. “Crazy Taxi” is fast, and I encountered no bugs. The html format of the readme is pretty nice, too.

Overall 6/10
I think there are some who will enjoy this game, at least for a little while.

If you have played the Dreamcast game “CRazy Taxi,” you will find that this is nothing like it. This game is just not all that great. The graphics are not good. You drive a car that looks like a block, pick up stick people, and take them to a square that appears. Even though there are five levels, they are painfully tiny. Another thing is that the game turns the contrast all the way up and you can' turn it down! This does hide the pitiful graphics, but makes it hard to see anything. The only positive thing about this game is the nifty title screen.

Overall: 3/10
Go download something else.
