Description

Smashing Drive puts you in the driver's seat of an insane, outrageous taxi on the busy streets of New York City. Your job is to simply race from point to point in the fastest time possible.

The key to success in Smashing Drive lies in two features: crazy power-ups and hidden shortcuts. Almost all of the power-ups transform your taxi in some way that allows you to smash your way through traffic with ease. And the shortcuts usually involve crashing through the insides of buildings, like movie theaters and sports arenas.

Smashing Drive Game Boy Advance Going through Little Italy... Speed Racer-style: with saw blades. Or "Cutter", as this game calls it. Another thing: fortunately, you can't hear the music: it's terrible
Smashing Drive Game Boy Advance "I'm On A Boat"! BTW, this really is a crazy taxi, compared to Sega's Crazy Taxi. The only difference being that Sega's game was so much better
Smashing Drive Game Boy Advance The credits. Wait... Raylight? The same company that made the GBA version of Wing Commander Prophecy? The same company that made the RE2 tech demo for GBA? Seriously?

Trivia

According to the description of a video of the original arcade version uploaded to YouTube (Ed. note: Now removed alongside the channel's other videos) by Javier Arrebola, the game's designer, Smashing Drive was going to be called Crazy Taxi, but a game with the same name was released by Sega, so they changed the name.
