Fare City is a line-drawing game with a taxi twist. It's a lot of fun and offers tons of options. Just be aware that you need to sink some time into this one; it's not for quick sessions!

What's New

- Fixed a timing problem with app launch and loading of Games Center

Coming soon in 3.0:
- Fully optimized retina graphics
- iPad support
- iPhone 5 support
- Games Center challenges
- and (maybe) a new map…
