Crazy Taxi Arrives For Android!

Crazy Taxi (Android)

Like a freewheeling, hill-jumping taxi careening around the bend and screeching to a halt outside your very door as the timer runs out, CRAZY TAXI is here — on your Android!

You can pick the game up at the Google Play store now:

The game will be coming soon for purchase on the Amazon App Store and Samsung Store, as well.

A Dreamcast Classic on the Go

Based on the Dreamcast original — and featuring original music by The Offspring and Bad religion — Crazy Taxi is a white-knuckled ride from one fare to the next, as you blast wildly through the streets. Much as in real life the only thing that matters is getting there on time! Terrify your passengers and other pedestrians, catch all the air you can, and pull off all the crazy tricks you can manage.

Crazy Taxi (Android)

Play How You Like

The game has been optimized for Android and features multiple modes to fit either just a few minutes of craziness on the go, or longer — and therefore more crazy — sessions. To that end: Crazy Taxi features 16 mini games and the opportunity to play in Arcade or Original Mode. It’s time to make some crazy money!

Crazy Taxi is now available for $4.99/€3.99 /£2.99 on Google Play and will be available later this week on the Amazon App Store and Samsung Store.

After Burner Climax: Live on the App Store

After Burner Climax - iOS

Take to the skies on the go — the one-of-a-kind arcade action of After Burner Climax is now live on the App Store for iPhone and iPad!

Here’s where you can go get the game right now:

This is the same AM2-developed arcade game already brought to digital console download, and now – as if you needed proof we were living in the future – on your mobile device. And oh yes: the game is just around the corner for Android. More details available soon!

Get Ready!

After Burner Climax brings blistering jet fighter arcade action: easy to pick up and play, difficult to master, with tons of customizable settings and game modes. You can blaze through a single game “storyline” in no time, but mastering every path and exploring every level is always what gave the game depth and purpose.

The After Burner series was at the heart of SEGA’s arcade heritage in many ways – from the 1987 arcade original to the stunning translation to 8-bits on the Master System, through After Burner Climax and its iterations, this series has always been about combing terrific hardware and technology with fast action, clever tactics, and infectious replayability.

After Burner Climax - iOS

The Sky is the Limit

Gorgeous graphics and smooth, intense gameplay aside, one of the defining features of After Burner has always been the wide range of options. We’re happy to say those have made it to mobile: You can select from the F-14D Super Tomcat by Northrop Grumman, the F-15E Strike Eagle or F/A-18E Super Hornet by Boeing; each plane has four custom paint jobs to choose from.

The game also features secret levels, power-ups, and different game modes including Arcade Mode and Score Attack. Returning from the XBLA/PSN version of the game are the EX Options — unlock the power of your arsenal and other power-ups such as unlimited lives and continues, auto lock-on and persistent Climax Mode.

The game will even feature leaderboards – test your mettle against pilots the world over, because there are, as they say, no points for second best when you’re in the danger zone.

After Burner Climax - iOS

iOS Features

In addition to bringing the arcade action and options to the App Store, there are additional iOS features we’ve added:

  • Airplay Support
  • HDMI Support
  • Retina Display on iPhone 4/4S/5 and iPad 3rd and 4th Gen
  • Support for iPad Mini
