Crazi Taxi released for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

by

A portable version of the hit arcade and home racing game, Crazy Taxi, is now availible for the iOS platform across several devices, including Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Originally developed by the now defunct AM3 division of SEGA, Crazy Taxi is a time-based racing game in which the player must pick up and transport fares to various locations across the city as quickly as possible, whilst performing many dangerous (and crazy) tricks and stunts in order to improve their score and gain time bonuses before their allotted time runs out. The series is well known for its absurd humor, fast pace, addicting and highly replayable gameplay, and most notably, its soundtrack, which consists entirely of songs provided by punk rock bands The Offspring and Bad Religion. The soundtrack is so heavily ingrained in the attitude and general style of the game that many fans consider the two synonymous, which is why some were left highly disappointed when the game was released for the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade in 2010 with a different, generally worse soundtrack. With this new version, however, fans can once again rejoice, as the original soundtrack will be making a full return, as evidenced by the use of the song “All I Want” by the Offspring in the game’s brief trailer, which you can view after the break.
