Thanks for the kind words.
We've tried our best to get the game looking good on all devices. Hopefully that comes across

Cheers for the heads up on the broken links.

Are the appearance of fares and their destinations randomized each play of a level?

Dang, I love it, Cranker, we are two focused freaks, eh? The most important aspect in any game for me is randomization and for you it is all about global scoring!

Is it just me or does the icon remind anybody else of Crazy Taxi?

This is a really unique game. I have played through the first level on the full version so far and it is very fun. Smooth controls and pretty good graphics. Don't be fooled by the simple look.. This game is great!
