Flight Control meets Fare City...in SPACE!

:
Your objective is to land on the pads with waiting fares, and then drop them off on the pad of their destination (indicated by the color they change to once sitting in your cab) receiving a point for the effort. What makes this a little different from most ground based taxi games is that in this case, just like something like Flight Control, you are free to create any path you want to maneuver through the space with your ONLY obstacle being your other cabs (just one collision will end the game). On the other hand, since, unlike Flight Control, you can't just land and forget about a given vehicle, these cabs are always moving and only pause a few seconds when picking up and dropping off fares. Once you have 3+ cabs bouncing around the screen it becomes a bit of a juggling act.

One of the game's twists is how the aliens are NOT PATIENT in the slightest. If you see the "Pirate Flag Thought Bubble" pop up from an alien realize you only have SECONDS to snag them before they blow up and you lose the game!

Finally a novel mechanic that I have yet to really learn how to effectively balance is the introduction of couple fares later in the game. Couples, of course, must travel together but in order to accommodate that you need to pick them up in a special couple's UFO (one that alien singles refuse to bother with). So once couples hit the scene it means you have to have your available cabs at the right ratios to handle the fares. The game allows you to freely add or put back as many cabs as you want so which type of cabs you have flying around out there is totally up to you.

4/5 stars

Fun

:
If you like games like flight control this game does the same thing but makes it even more complex and difficult. This is worth .99

5/5 stars

amazing twist to line drawing games

:
if you enjoy games like Flight Control, you must give AlienCab a try! It adds a new dimension by having the characters blow up if you don't pick them up on time... and if you try to please all of them, you'll end up with a multitude of space ships! the sounds are very funny... I loss just to see and listen the alien blow out!
