At Last, a Crazy Taxi Game Set in the Future! Mile High Taxi - Early Impressions

By Nick | October 9, 2022

I don't know about you, but I've been waiting for a Crazy Taxi game set in the future ever since I first played the original back in the day. And, finally, my prayers have been answered with Mile High Taxi. This new game from indie developer Cassius John-Adams, pays homage to Sega's classic while setting the action in a sleek, futuristic world.

In Mile High Taxi, you play as a taxi driver in a city that's, you guessed it, a mile high! You'll pick up passengers from super skyscrapers and fly them to their destinations while avoiding obstacles and other vehicles. The game features a variety of different cars and drivers to choose from, each with its own unique abilities. And you'll need to use all your skills to navigate the Skyways and find hidden shortcuts.

The best part of Mile High Taxi is definitely the setting. The skylines and massive structures are gorgeous and the city bustles with activity. The HyperDrive Boost is also a lot of fun - just be careful not to crash into anything. Picking up passengers is a breeze and has the grit and feel of the original.

The weakest parts of the game so far are the controls and navigation. The controls are very sensitive and the navigation is glitchy. Since I only had the opportunity to try the demo, the game obviously feels unfinished, and it's clear that the developer has some work to do before its release. But the core elements are in place so I'm definitely keeping my eyes on this one.

If you're a fan of Crazy Taxi or just love games set in the future, then you should definitely check out Mile High Taxi. So what are you waiting for? Go hail yourself a cab and wishlist this bad boy right now!
