Check out a video of gameplay here:
- Intuitive Controls: The only thing you need to do is tilt!
- Diverse Environments: Hours of gameplay across seven different cities, plus more to come with future updates!
- In-Game Awards: Earn dozens of Awards for completing a wide variety of challenges! Can you earn the insane Untouchable Award? Or maybe the N00b Cabbie Award is more up your alley?
- All-Vocal Soundtrack: Taxiball's entire soundtrack is the work of beatboxer Wes Carroll of www.mouthdrumming.com!
- Global Thermonuclear War: No - wait, that's not right. Global ONLINE LEADERBOARDS. Your scores are posted to a global online leaderboard. Can you beat the developers at their own game? Because if you can, the whole world will know!
- Friends List: Add your friends to your Friends List, and check out their Awards and high scores!
- Endlessly Replayable: Playing through a level in Taxiball is easy - but developing the best strategy to climb to the top of the leaderboards and unlock all the Awards takes planning, practice, and crazy skill.
- Interrupted? No problem!: Taxiball saves progress any time you're interrupted! Get cut off by a phone call, or have to stop playing 'cause your boss walked by? Just start the game up again, and your progress can be instantly restored!
ALSO: A small percentage of users appear to be having problems with the accelerometer-based control. A simple reboot should correct any issues.
