Piloting a Space Taxi, you must pick up passengers from "pads" and carry them to whatever other pads they wish to go. Space Taxi features 25 screens with varying obstacles and challenges that must be navigated in order to collect your fare. Although Space Taxis sort of resemble yellow Checker Cabs, they operate on a different principle - the longer you take to deliver a passenger, the less money you collect. In addition to watching the clock because of an incentive to collect money, players have to be aware of their fuel supply. Run out of fuel, and you will crash.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
This game was notable for the fact that it used multiple voices representing the different customers being picked up, saying things like "Hey, taxi!", "Pad 1 please" and "Up, please".
This may not seem like much to modern gamers but this was a big deal in 1984 on a Commodore 64!
