Deliver passengers to their destinations, so you can earn money to upgrade your cab, and take on undercover missions in the hope that somehow you can find a way out. An impressive array of cab-mounted weaponry will help you to survive.

Trivia

Like Sam Jeffreys I also decided to write a little note of appreciation to Ray Larabie, and also took the chance to ask him how Gametek managed to find all the cool music for the game. Here's what he wrote:

"That’s funny, I was just talking about Hoverboy today!

The only band that made it over here was You Am I who had a top 40 hit with “Soldiers”. It’s one of my favourite juvey, teen-angst songs, up there with Pleasant Valley Sunday by the Monkees.

Gametek knew someone who knew someone who ran a very inexpensive film production company in Oz. I think they did music videos but I’m not sure. They did the FMV for another Gametek game … dome D&D thing and it was extremely funny! I forget what it was called but the video was great. I believe that Simon Day was the connection with the bands … Drake himself! I still feel like I’ve never made a cool game since Quarantine. GTA London was kind of cool but it’s no Q-tine. The group of 5 guys who put Q-tine together are still working in the same office. Right now were doing a game based on the 1979 cult movie, the Warriors. Rod Humble, the producer is producing (or directing, I forget) the next Everquest title."
