Review: Taxi Dash
The game has a good interface with clear buttons and an easy to use menu when you press the return key while in game.Theres not much to say about the presentation of a game but this one is very good.
Taxi Dash is the first klik game i've seen that tried to capture the gameplay seen in Crazy Taxi. When you begin the game you have the option of arcade (make as much money you can in a fixed amount of time) or career mode in which you have to make your taxi company successful. The later mode has been well constructed and is pretty fun to play. The game itself has a mixture of gameplay from the GTA games (driving about and street races) and the Crazy Taxi games in which you have to collect as many fares as possible. Overall I have to say that Zane has done a great job with the gameplay as I spent a while seeing whether I could better my score in arcade mode.
The game has a GTA vibe going on in it and this is evident with the graphics. The cars have good detail and the skid marks look pretty sweet. Taxi Dash's graphics may look a bit basic from some peoples persepctive but I think they suit the game really well and lets face it, having a really detailed city is damn hard to do.
Sound and music:
The sound is pretty good as when you crash your taxi, drop off a passenger or drive over a person there is a sound effect.One recommendation is to add a sound effect for when you skid the taxi in the game.
The music in the game is also well done and suits the game well. Maybe in a future game you could record your own radio station for the game,lol. Anyway you should think about adding short sound clips for the taxi cabs inter-com system such as people asking for a taxi.
This game will last you a while since you have the arcade mode for just a quick game or the career mode for prolonged play. A lot of klik games I download get deleted after one go but this will be staying on my hard drive for a while.
Zane has done a pretty good job at capturing the type of gameplay seen in the Crazy Taxi games. Improvements which could be made include fixing up the game engine since I was skidding uncontrolably at one point. Also improving the gameplay a bit by there being more passengers in the level to pick up. I rather not have only the one passenger to chose from. It still is a great game though.
