Announcement: TaxiDrive Update and Free Version

COMING SOON!

Hi there,

we will provide TaxiDrive with a comprehensive free update for all TaxiDrive Pro’s and a free version for novice drivers.

NEW FEATURES:
- a new town (London) with 3 new and challenging maps
- new vehicles driving at different speeds (e.g. busses).
- „Danger Times“ (e.g. police operations, where you should quickly move to a quiet street)
- Celebrity passengers (pay high tip, but don’t wait long for a taxi)
- global highscore list (scoreloop)
- challenge other gamers or friends (scoreloop)

To share the gameplay excitement with a greater audience, TaxiDrive will be available soon as a Free-Version with one playable map, but all functionalities.

wow, the update sounds really good!

I like the idea of A-list clientele

Will the Scoreloop challenges be push enabled like OpenFeint 2.1 or Plus+?

Hi there,

i hope the FreeVersion will be released soon. It's in review since 2 1/2 weeks...

@VeganTNT:
This is not official, but i'm sure, that scoreloop will support push enabled challanges soon. When they do, no additional TaxiDrive update from our side is necessary, cause this feature runs on the server.

@Grumps:
Paris is already on the list of possible new Cities ;o)

best,
Enrico
