Welcome to the Whiplash Taxi Company, where our motto is "The slower you're there, the lower the fare!"

As a valued employee and taxi driver, your job is to pick up passengers and deliver them to their destination as fast as possible, by any means necessary.

Passengers are easy to spot, just look for the big red arrows over their heads.

Simply stop next to them so they can jump in!
Then follow the red destination indicator to the destination and stop when it says "stop!".

Repeat this as many times as possible in 5 minutes, and see how much $$$ you can bring in.

But beware, sometimes the direct route isn't the quickest.
To make it easier we have provide this giant map of Motsville. You may want to spend some time in "Free Explore" to get the layout. Or try some of the fully legitimate and not just driving-around-random-streets-way-too-fast street circuits, and maybe set a few lap records.

Remember, at Whiplash Taxis when we say "Break neck speeds", we mean it!
(Hopefully not literally. Hopefully.)

This is wonderful. Cant wait for the next step which logically has to be Grand Theft Auto :)

Amazing! It's like Crazy Taxi but from the SNES era. The driving controls and drifting feel fantastic.

😲 Phenomenal!
About the controls: not sure if it's just me but I often find myself pushing up to accelerate (typically after a short reverse) and it does nothing until I release and push up again.
Edit: nevermind I understand it's by design to allow a complete stop.

@Heracleum Thanks. Yeah, being able to stop completely is necessary for the gameplay. And I wanted to make switching into reverse and back feel more deliberate.

This is awesome!
@Minion Picotron will probably (hopefully) have a mini grand theft auto considering that this can be done with pico-8...
(also, maybe turning off the stopping at 0 speed when going from reverse to drive and vice versa could be turned off in race mode? But then that makes crashing less impactful, I'm not sure actually)

Really fun game! I really enjoyed driving around and the music was slapping as well!

Amazing work, I love this. The race mode is great, sliding around corners feels awesome, really fun. I am in awe 🙌

i love the passengers reactions to me just bumbling around, i love the car wobbling and the feeling of swerving at corners, i love the two cars that got into a car crash in front of me and made me go all "get out of my way!!!"... it is so much fun to live in the world of whiplash taxi co!!

@quewon I had plans that the AI cars would obey the road rules. It even had the give way rules defined in the data at one point.
But there was always a more important feature to implement, until eventually there were no more tokens. So it turns out it wasn't as important as I thought 🙂.

Quick question, how many customers are in Free Explore?

P#134160 2023-09-10 23:36


I just checked the code and there's 36 customers.
