About

Spaß Taxi ("Spaß" is the German word for "fun") is a remake/clone of the original Space Taxi, where you need to bring passengers from one pad to another in mostly weird unnatural environments.


The gameplay

The 40 levels of Spaß Taxi offer a variation of challenges:

 Quick reactions
Avoid rockets and lasers or pass through moving gaps.

 Puzzles
Push the right buttons, find the shortest path or utilize teleporters.

 Learning
Memorize the passengers and their destinations, find out better (and quicker) ways to move, land or get your customers into or out of your car.

 Dexterity
Use the right amount of thrust to be fast, but not crash into stuff and quickly know which thruster to use while flying upside down in veteran mode.

Requirements

Spaß Taxi can be played with the keyboard, but is best played with a controller (currently only the XBox controller is supported, but others will follow).

It is looking best in a 16:9ish resolution at FullHD or above, preferring a multiple of it (e.g. 1920x1080, 1920x1200, 3840x2160).


Play the demo!

The demo contains 6 levels (plus tutorial) and is a great way to check out the gameplay, controller support and performance on your machine.

It also has a separate highscore list, so you can even compete with your friends here. :)


 

New and old

This version of the game takes the original concept and adds or changes a lot of things to get a whole new experience while retaining some of the retro feeling.


Rotation


The taxi can now rotate to get through narrow passages, avoid obstacles or even land on the ceiling.

 

Different types of passengers



There are those that fancy to loop the loop and go fast, but there are also those who will reveal their last meal if you rotate too much.

 

Health instead of lifes

The car has health (or integrity) and you can repair it while parking at a repair station (which costs money) or by having a mechanic on board.
When there is nothing left to repair, you  can buy a new car if you have enough money.

I am playing the full game now, but where can i find the demo? I'd like to try that too!

You will find the demo if you scroll all the way down on the game page.

It has its own highscore list, but it contains an excerpt of the same levels, so you won't miss anything by playing "only" the full version. :)

there are two things that would be fun if you added it; a death counter, and maybe a car selection screen, and that you can unlock cars with achievements you could earn while playing! If that would be added i'd be hooked to the game! (not that i'm not hooked already!)

(1 edit)

Thanks for the suggestions! Unlockable cars have been suggested before, but this would need a lot of additional work. At some point a dev needs to "move on" to have time for future projects.

I might do smaller updates in the future and added the death counter to the list. :)

I'm already looking forward to it!

I love it! I love the art style and the funny gameplay, and i love that you can just rampage through the level! I will rate it good!

Hi! Thank you very much for the nice feedback! :)

i whant to see CaptainSauce play it hes funny XD 

Well, I'd love that. :)

Congratulations on your demo release! Taserface
