[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - The Berlin games developer syncRage presents its first iPhone game: TAXI DRIVE New York! Make money as a taxi driver on the asphalt of the Big Apple! Not everyone's dream? - not yet! Try TAXI DRIVE once, and you run the risk of becoming fixed and taking the fast-paced game play into your dreams. Following the principle of the endless game, the player must confront increasing traffic density and can earn additional "lives" (taxis) and unlock licenses for new neighborhoods. Thanks to the intuitive touch-control the game is immediately accessible.
Never before has it been so easy to find the target, simply tap the desired position on the map. But beware: The direct path from the calculated route may lead to a crash with another motorist. The denser the traffic gets, the more important and decisive are quick reactions and the choice of the right sub-route. Whomever quickly finds safe positions on the maps - areas not visited by other vehicles - is clearly in the advantage.
syncRage announces the game as a prelude to a taxi-series, which will captivate the player with new maps, vehicles, and other challenges and rewards.
CONCLUSION: Nothing for those with poor motor skills, everything for those with nimble fingers! TAXI DRIVE New York is one of those games that is brilliantly simple and provides an awesome amount of fun. A real "Crasher" for in-between!
