Sega Dreamcast: Crazy Taxi
By the way, Crazy Taxi II is in preproduction (finally), and is said to play in New York. Whee. [jutta, May 25 2001]
||This is fairly close to "Crazy Taxi", see link.
||Pick up and drop off; extra points for speed; higher tips for cutting off drivers, spinning, flying; less money for bumping into things. Great fun, but something of a plateau game - once you're familiar with the driving tricks and the geography, there's really nothing much more to do.
||I vote for this for an example of 'Non-descriptive idea names'...'Froghead'? I thought it was another lame superhero...
||Starchaser: "Froghead" is title we hurled at wee small folks driving those cruisers so low in the saddle that all you sees are the shiny pate and two hands above the car seat back. My idea centered on keeping a demanding schedule while driving a car where the brake and throttle keep switching positions and the steering column has a 5 second built in delay. Radio that is stuck on 'scan' extra.
||D'oh! Jutta beat me with that link...
