Sega has resurrected one of its classic Dreamcast titles for iOS: Crazy Taxi is now available for download from the App Store for $4.99 (it’s a Universal app that runs natively on iPhone, iPod touch or iPad).
Crazy Taxi came out in arcades and was available on the late, lamented Dreamcast console, though it would later see the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube and would spawn multiple sequels. In recent years, Sega has re-released the game for download through Sony’s PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
In Crazy Taxi, your job is to pick up passengers in an open-ended cityscape and drive them to their destination. You have to beat the clock to get their fare; you’ll get added bonuses if you perform crazy stunts along the way.
The iOS edition of the game features the original soundtrack with songs from Bad Religion and The Offspring (and support for your own music), 16 mini-games, Game Center achievements and leaderboards, and more.
