Nice details, the animated options menu, the triangle fading between screens. The ability to turn music on and off was nice also. The WarCraft 2 music is what I heard, so that was a little strange. I was able to drive a little before it crashed. Nicely done, it looks amazing!

This looks very good, though i couldn't navigate and at some point i got stuck between a pole and a wall and no matter how much i tried, i was always getting pushed around :-/. Also initially i expected to see some people where i was supposed to go and didn't notice the huge flashing rectangle at the ground :-P

Was it inspired by Quarantine btw? Both the theme and the graphics look kinda like it.

I quite like the clever use of this engine for a driving game, the dark atmosphere and the humor of this game (I think I got Duke as a customer at some point :). At first I lost, but when I played again and got used to the control, it's pretty fun to drive and rush to get the next customer, the map and the waypoint helps.

Controls are great, graphics are great, reminds me of Crazy Taxi, but less arcadey.  That's not a bad thing at all.  I agree that it could use some music - which I assume is in the cd version, but not the floppy version I played.  I did notice that sometimes cars would just drive thru the buildings.

Love this game.  Technically stunning, really good fun.

Some music could help it perhaps? (says the guy who submitted a demo with no sound whatsoever).

Really great work!

This is really cool. Played it a bit on dosbox today, but I’ll try it on my retro pc soon for sure.
