Mars Taxi

Moby ID: 5298

Description

A clone of the classic Space Taxi game: As an operator of a taxi on Mars, your job is to carry passengers from one platform to another as quickly as possible. You'll have to avoid obstacles on the way and land smoothly in order to not annoy your passengers - which can be quite tricky, since gravity is not exactly helping here.

In each of the ten levels, there's a lot of money to be made by skillfully flying your taxi. And you need that money, since flying to the gas station on a regular basis is a necessity if you don't want to crash.

Allows multi-player sessions with up to four people in seven extra multi-player levels.

Trivia

Ending

There is in fact an ending sequence; you get to see it when you complete all levels in the hardest difficulty level without using a cheat.

The ending sequence is pretty much just an unspectacular text which includes the line "during production of this game, ...one programmer was injured...". This refers to the programmer Michael Krehan who broke his ankle under bizarre circumstances and wrote a part of the game at home.

Hidden message

When using a hex editor, you'll be able to spot the following text inside the executable of the game:

HEY! What are you doing in other people's code? Get outta here, NOW! What do you think you're gonna find here? NOBODY is THAT stupid and stores cheat codes in ASCII in the main executable! Try harder, buster.

Incidentally, the cheat codes ARE stored in plain ASCII in the executable.
