Description

4-Color Taxi is a retro GameBoy styled game where you are a taxi driver trying to find passengers and bring them to their destination using their vague directions to find out where they want to be going!

History

This game started out as a game I made in 2 days for a Mini Ludum Dare. People seemed to like it a lot so I figured I'd try and make a full game out of it. This was about 4 months ago. It has grown a lot since then!

Features

  • Retro graphics with a maximum of 4 colors on the screen at the same time!
  • 20 different hand made levels of increasing difficulty!
  • Leaderboards! Compete with your friends (or the world)!
  • Fun, simple controls that are easy to use but hard to master!
  • Original Chiptune soundtracks by Joe Williamson!
  • Full premium game with no In-app Purchases or ads!
