What's it about?

In CRAZY TAXI GAZILLIONAIRE, you run a cab company that's staffed by people who are, well, crazy. At least when it comes to how they drive, that is. Your objective is to make money by telling them what to do, while also undermining a local businessman who runs a competing cab company that uses self-driving cars. And blimps, for some odd reason. 

Is it any good?

While the name implies that this is a mobile version of the classic arcade driving game, it actually misses the point of the original by being more about running a cab company. While the original was an over-the-top driving game that had you working as a cab driver, Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire instead has you looking down on a city and telling the cab drivers who work for you where to go. Which you do by just taping on a customer's icon. In doing so, you earn money you can use to buy new cabs and cabbies, as well as to upgrade your taxis. Which, in turn, will allow them to earn more money for you. You also earn cash by telling your drivers to do dangerous stunts. In order words, you're a bad manager and should be run out of business. And arrested. The thing is, there's no real challenge to this, and nothing to do. There's no driving, obviously, but there's also no strategy. It doesn't matter if you upgrade one cab over another, since you can always just wait a little while, tap tapping away, until you have enough to cash to buy the other cab an upgrade. You even earn money when you're not playing, and can then double it by watching a video. Your only concerns are occasionally missing a fare or maybe running out of gas, which doesn't happen much. All of which may be fine for those who have dreams of middle-management, but for those looking for something fun and challenging, Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire is strictly hands-off.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about driving safety. Given how badly the cabbies in this game drive, has it taught you anything about how you should drive in real life?

  • Talk about treating people with respect. In the game, you force people to do crazy stunts so you can earn money, but does this seem fair to you?

  • Discuss managing your money. Given how easy it is to earn money in this game, is there a reason to spend real money on this game?
