Arcade gaming classic Crazy Taxi goes free-to-play on iOS and Android

Our youngest readers may not be familiar with Crazy Taxi, but many of us who are a bit older have fond memories of enjoying the chaos and mayhem of the old-school arcade game. While the arcade version - complete with steering wheel and accelerator/brake pedals - was enormously fun when it came out in 1999, the Sega Dreamcast version released in 2000 was a huge hit too, and the game later made its way to other platforms as well.

Crazy Taxi has even made its way to mobile devices - and now, Sega has made the game free to play on iOS and Android. The game is ad-supported, but players can choose to pay $2 if they don't want to sit through the ads. Those who have previously purchased the mobile game can also switch to the new ad-free version through the 'Restore Purchases' feature on iOS; or via 'My apps and games' on Google Play.

The game's store listing highlights some of its key features:

TRANSPORT BACK TO 2000

FIERCE ENVIRONMENTS TO MAKE YOUR PASSENGERS GO INSANE
