Once upon a midnight fall,
Came my way a taxiball.
Big, round, yellow, clear,
Around the city roads we steer.
To the destination point we go,
Oh no, there’s ice, let’s take it slow.
Following up is a broken bridge,
So we carefully roll around the ridge,
At last! Our stop is finally here,
And with a wave we pay our fare,
Thank Taxiball for bringing us home!
Now back to the busy streets to roam.

Crazytaxi meets iPhone
I guess you know game called Crazy Taxi. Well, Taxiball is iPhone version of crazy taxi with some differences - you have ball and not car, and you are not controling game with steering wheel but with iPhone accelerometer. I am not big fan of mazes or another games with balls that are accelerometer based, but this crazy taxi - like concept is entertaining and with different cities (they are kind of small but well designed) you need to act fast and sometimes cautiously. There is a lot of content in this game, achievements, leaderboards, friends etc, so you will be entertained for pretty long time
Fun, Great Sound, and Rich with Features
A fun tilt ball game with the added twist and challenge of taking passengers to their destinations.
The beat box music and sound effects are subtle enough to have your own music in the background, while offering game feedback.
The biggest selling points are the rich features. Auto-save when interrupted. Online scoreboards with the ability to add and track friends. And unlockable achievements. Each time you play, the experience is fresh, fun and challenging.
Can't play without a WiFi Connection
I bought this game through my PC because our wireless network is down and out. I load up the game and can't play because it wants me to register my handle. I realize now that it's in the notes in the description but only at the very end after the devloper lists a dozen reviews praising the game. I think this was a stupid decision and will only be the source of frustration among customers. There's no good reason for it other than to cripple the product.
