FareCity

I don’t know that this title is technically better than Taxi Jam, because I haven’t done a direct comparison between the two, but I do know that I’m putting a lot more time into this one. One of the primary reasons, I think, is that the devs made some really good choices graphically, to make sure the player has proper feedback at all times. Toward this end, the city backdrop is a very clean grayscale map, to better highlight the motion of the taxis. They also very clearly color-coded cars, pick-up points, destinations, and even the path they take, which is brilliant. AFAIK, it doesn’t have the fire engine gameplay (to muck up your route-building) or the risk/reward mechanism that Taxi Jam does, but instead sticks to the simple pick-up and drop-off of patrons, which scales quite nicely over time. The jazzy soundtrack is also made of win.
