Craxy Taxi Goes Free For A Limited Time As Sega Teases Its Successor


Crazy Taxi, the iconic Dreamcast title from Sega, is now free for a limited time on Android. The sale celebrates the forthcoming free-to-play title Crazy Taxi: City Rush, giving gamers the chance to hone their insane driving skills before its debut on Android and iOS in the coming weeks.

The sale runs from today until Wednesday, March 19. Sega has changed the name of the game from just Crazy Taxi to Crazy Taxi Free on Google Play, but don’t let that fool you into thinking this is a “lite” demo release; it’s the full game in all its glory.

The giveaway provides mobile gamers with a chance to experience the original Crazy Taxi game before its success arrives. City Rush will be free-to-play, and Sega says it aims to redeliver everything that fans loved about the original title while introducing new controls, new music, and of course, new content.


The aim of the game in City Rush will be familiar to anyone who’s played Crazy Taxi before; your mission is to pick up passengers and get them to their destination as quickly as possible. The more reckless your driving, the more points you pick up.

City Rush will also have a multiplayer element — something Crazy Taxi has never had before. Not only will players be able to compete for high scores on Facebook, but they’ll also be able to see other players on the map and taxi them around.

City Rush will be available in Australia and Canada this month as part of a “soft launch,” Polygon reports, with a worldwide release expected in early summer.
