-----------------------------------------

Ever called a taxi and wondered why it was taking so long to get to you? Or sat in the back seat and thought it was taking too long to get where you wanted to go?

Taxi Jam is your chance to show the Cabbies how it should be done!

With Tokyo and Sydney now added to New York, Paris and London, there are FIVE levels of increasing challenge to keep you hooked.

Your job as the cab driver is to navigate through the city streets to pick up your fare before they get fed up waiting and change their mind. Get to them in time, then drop them at their destination as fast as you can to earn points.

As you speed through the city, watch out for fire trucks, police cars, buses and bikes - even Godzilla makes an appearance! BUT BEWARE!! Accidents will cost you!

If the hazards of the city traffic weren't enough, in Taxi Jam you're not just the driver, you're also the Taxi Controller.

You have to decide how many cabs you need on the city streets at one time. Too few and you might miss the fares. Too many, and you're quite literally going to run into trouble!

With beautiful graphics, great sounds, and intuitive tap and slide controls, Taxi Jam is as addictive as it gets!

- Control just one taxi or pull as many out of the rank as needed
- Stunning graphics and sounds
- Highly addictive gameplay
- Intuitive point and drag interface
- Five addictive levels (Sydney, Tokyo, New York, London, Paris)
- Multiplayer over Bluetooth
- Quick save and resume (in case you receive a phone call!)
- Save and view personal bests, and highscores on the ingame leaderboard
- Playable in either landscape or portrait mode
- Developed exclusively for the iPhone/iPod touch

For those of you who liked Flight Control, Harbor Master, Taxi Drive and similar games, you'll love Taxi Jam!

Graphics look nice and clean. Just want to know what separates this from Car Mania and Taxidrive. CM has the road rage and train thing.

Car Mania has set places of different that you take all the cars of that same color too.

In Taxi drive you pick up a fare and take them to some location that they want to go to. The fare becomes more aggravated as you take your time getting there. I don't think the actual locations are set either (ie not all fares want to go to the same place) which should provide some variety

and I believe obstacles show up later, like trains to prevent you from reaching a destinations by certain routes

Hey Guys,

We like to think our game is very different in gameplay to Car Mania and Taxi Drive. It is more fast paced and we have spent a long time making sure the level ramping, game play format and difficulty is just right.

There are three levels all with different soundtracks, each level having different road layouts in different cities - each city unlocks as you progress through the game and there is a world top 50 online leaderboard.

We hope you will like our game - there is a gameplay video on youTube here. (Sorry about the quality).

If there is anything specific you would like to know about the game - please dont hesitate to ask!

Cheers,

Ringo
