Description

In this taxi game you have to deliver customers to their destination, which are all landmarks in Amsterdam, such as "Central Station", "Anne Frank House" or "Rembrandt Square". All major landmarks, including coffee-shops and the red light district, are present in this game about Amsterdam and its Taxis. Narrow streets, pickup bonuses (snow-shovel, rockets, money, jump, boost...) add a lot to the gameplay, as well as the many canals you have to dodge by jumping over bridges. The snow-shovel allows players to kick traffic away as if they were made out of paper, the boost unleashes an uncontrollable speed (which isn't very useful in Amsterdam) and the jump comes in handy when crossing a canal without bridges.

Traffic can be destroyed with rockets or very hard collisions: once damaged, they start to smoke, burn and finally explode. Also included are electronic speed controls which will flash if players drive too fast beneath them - then a speeding ticket is given. There are several special missions in this game that include delivering Dutch celebrities to their own landmarks (actors, soccer coaches, the royal family...).
