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.

Grab it on sale while you can!

This is already a polished, cute and fun game, but it is hard to beat the amount of content there is to play with: Different cities, bonus games, add friends, accomplishments...

This game will keep you busy for some time, the demo is only a small bite out of what the full game offers.

5/5 stars

A great game that keeps getting better

:
This game is incredibly fun, and is a really fresh take on the marble rolling genre, perhaps the only genre more saturated than tower defense on the iPhone- it takes a lot to stand out here, and Taxiball really does. If you have any interest at all in this genre, or if you just want to own one of the best, most creative games on the iPhone, you owe it to yourself to check this game out.

What makes it stand out? Many things, but most importantly, it actually adds something new- the mission-based play mechanic. Getting all the fares in a level requires some careful strategy, and can be done in a different way every time you play- and the game is so simple to get into and entertaining enough to keep you trying over and over again.

When you take this new gameplay mechanic and add super-responsive controls, cool music and sound effects, a distinctive visual style and online leaderboards complete with friends lists, this game stands head and shoulders above most others on the app store. The attention to detail is really astonishing- from the implementation of the leaderboards, to the achievements, to the tiniest details on the characters and environments, the game just shines with a tremendous amount of polish and just keeps improving. The developers are active in the iPhone gaming community and are very responsive to comments from users. They have incorporated many of these suggestions in their updates, adding 2 new levels in the first update with another one in the second, and are going to continue adding more with each free update.

What more do you want? Buy this game! You'll be getting a great value and supporting a promising iPhone developer at the same time.

5/5 stars

Get rollin'!

:
Great graphics, awesome concept, fun gameplay, achievement lists, online scoring... the list goes on.
What else could you want? This is probably the best "ball rolling" labyrinth type game in the App Store because of how unique it is. Get it now!
