You own a taxi company. The aim of the game is to put your rivals out of buisness. You do this by driving your taxi ourself, or by hireing employees to earn money for you. You can buy upgrades for your taxi and order to make it faster, or a more plesent experence for your customers. When you buy the cd player, you can play your own CDs in the background. You can also take part in street races in order to earn quick money, of course you could also lose that money.

Taxi dash 1.1 is now available. runs alot smoother
just click on the download link
now has the normal car movement so unfortunatly, you can turn while stopped.
I also found alot of bugs in the races, which ive fixed.

If you would like to play the origional version, put this link in your address bar

Game features
- Arcade mode and carrer mode
- Taxi upgrades
- management options
- ini save system
- largeish city (9000x9000)
- Custom pause menu (press start when driving)

If the game runs slow, go to the options menu and turn off pedestrians and/or traffic.

Download has speeded up greatly thanx to darkman hosting it for me

Posted by Dark One 2nd December, 2003

umm...o...k...33 mins left...and i have ADSL...and it goes 1000 byte/ circy claus, you sure is right
Posted by Zane 3rd December, 2003

thanx for the review darkman.;)
Posted by Zane 3rd December, 2003

sorry about the screenshots, ran out of bandwidth at my picture host.
Posted by The Chris Street 3rd December, 2003

I dont like this. The taxi is practically impossible to control, it just careers all over the place.
Posted by Dark One 3rd December, 2003

No crud, how are we suppose to actually play this!
Posted by Broomie 3rd December, 2003

This is the first time I think you should just use the Driving Movement. It would work much better than trying to code it. I can't even pick someone up, are you sure the Beta Testers actually tested and reviewed the game, if I was one I definetly mention the Taxi moving around the place. Please fix that. I really want to play it. :D
Posted by Jatzek(DreamEvil Corp) 3rd December, 2003

Yeah, fix that bug... I managed to get to the other end of the town... and I get a passanger too... but I don't know why... :)

Cheers darkman...the original server was giving me 0.56kb/s on adsl...
Posted by -_darkman_- 3rd December, 2003

took me over 30mins on a 56k, i think zane is going to change the main download link to where i hosted it
Posted by Lew 3rd December, 2003

Ok that odd experience. I have a pretty average system, not incredible but not utter crap. 256mb ram, 32mb gfx card, pentium 4 1.8ghz. However, the game ran at a snails pace even when taking off peds and cars. The controls were so unresponsive it was unreal-for example i'm coming up to a corner, so I hit right, and 2 seconds later it turns. And doesn't stop turning.
Posted by -_darkman_- 3rd December, 2003

It has a bit of a bug in it. There was no slow down on my laptop though (2.6ghz, 256 RAM,32 MB gfx. Zane is fixing up the game to remove the few bugs as far as I know
Posted by rage 3rd December, 2003

omg man change the resolution a bit smaller cause full screen on your leven width aint good. if u want it full screen atleast make it 800x600
Posted by SevenT2 - [GameStormers] 4th December, 2003

my computers only a AMD 900, and it runs fine... Oh wait.. the Geforce 4 might help it along.. Anyway, the game was pretty good, but zane you told me there was a way newer version, when will we see it?
Posted by Zane 4th December, 2003 going to make a version with a the normal car movement. I can see people hate the way it handles. Ill try and fix some ofthe other stuff as well.
Posted by Dark One 4th December, 2003

Give us a link when you fix it :)
Posted by Jatzek(DreamEvil Corp) 4th December, 2003

Zane... of course we hate it, because the car is un-controlable... you can't even turn left... :)
Posted by -_darkman_- 4th December, 2003

the game has a lot of potential if the car movement is improved you's have to agree
Posted by Zane 5th December, 2003

Posted by Zane 23rd December, 2003
