Being a cab driver in the Stone Age isn't easy..
There are more side-scrolling games in the gaming industry than one can count (Hocus
being my absolute favorite), but this game is comes at a close second. Being a clone of an earlier Amiga classic Space Taxi, instead of a futuristic setting, this game takes us to the very distant past - the prehistoric era! So, the gameplay involves you flying your taxi over prehistoric landscapes and taking your passengers wherever they need to go. Everything is not as simple as it seems, though; there are lots of traps, hidden doors, switches and a lot of extra fun stuff that make your drive a lot harder. And you're also on the clock! If you get your passengers to their destination you might get some extra points and, of course, getting the highest score is always the main motive of the game. The game is very cute, fun and amazingly addictive. You'll definitely get caught up into this game, driving people here and there until the small hours of the morning. The prehistoric setting give the game a doze of a comic relief. The graphics are very nice, the amount of graphical detail adequate enough for a decent gaming experience and the soundtrack can be better, but the game is very fun nevertheless! If you like classic arcade games, this one will thrill you!
