Miss The Dreamcast? Why Not Play A Little Crazy Taxi On Your Phone?

Following the release of the iOS port last October, Sega has made available the Dreamcast version of their acclaimed taxi-slash-reckless-driving simulator, Crazy Taxi, on Android as well.

The mobile version sports “remastered” visuals and touch-screen adapted controls, but is otherwise a faithful port, retaining both the gameplay and the soundtrack of the original game from 2000. Here’s what Sega’s promising for the Android port:

♪ TRANSPORT BACK TO 2000 ♪
-Remastered for mobile devices based on the hugely popular Dreamcast Classic
-Rock out to original music by The Offspring and Bad Religion

FIERCE ENVIRONMENTS TO MAKE YOUR PASSENGERS GO INSANE
-Extra large hills for extra long hang time
-Parked transporters with conveniently angled ramps
-Occasional deep sea exploration opportunities

DONT GET TOO DELIRIOUS
-Choose from 3, 5 or 10 minute game play in Arcade Mode and Original Mode
-Play in touch or tilt control modes

OTHER FEATURES:
-Continue the madness with 16 Mini games
-Listen to tracks from your own music playlist
-Universal Build – Buy once and play across multiple devices
-Controller Support – Play with your Power A Moga, Xbox, and all HID controllers!

If you’re up for a nostalgia-laden trip to the early aughts, you can nab the game on Google Play here. And, if you’ve missed last year’s iOS port, you can take a look at that over here.

  • I’ve been thinking of getting the original version as I now have a Dreamcast.

    Is it worth it? Or am I better off just getting the newer port?

    • I still have the original game on Dreamcast. Back in 2000ish, it was a killer fun party game with mates.
      2013, it’s bland and boring, has horrible music and really poor graphics.
      I think this game is only still around because people have fond memories of the Dreamcast.
      If it where just another PS2 game, it would have been forgotten a long time ago.
      Buy it for your phone. Worst case, its a bit of entertainment for the bus ride into work.

  • I remember playing this on my dreamcast (which I still have) and It would run for 10-15 minutes before the console would crash … got the game swapped a few times but still would crash yet every other game I played on the dreamcast would work fine. Ill be looking into this (pending price)

  • Really enjoyed this on the GameCube. Picked it up really cheap somewhere – pretty sure it had an extra area you could play in too.
