Play OverviewPlay Overview

Yellow Taxi Goes Vroom (2024) is a collecting traversal game where you play a taxi in a bizarre, psychedelic world. You drive around the different stages collecting gears and coins, using a midair dash and bouncing on trampolines (and rubber ducks) to reach high areas. It's a love letter to classic collecting games of the 90s but stands out for its intricate levels and charming design.

You play a small yellow taxi, who must help the moustachioed Morio collect gears to upgrade his lab and defeat the evil Tosla corporation. Play involves driving around the wacky stages, which feature giant floating noses, rubber ducks, and babies with laser beam eyes, to find gears and coins. Although you need to cross huge gaps you don't have a jump button, only a midair dash, so must rely on the scenery to help you get around. There are ramps, trampolines, and many other objects in or comprising the environment you must use to help you get around. Some of the most challenging collectables demand you master your vehicle and experiment with ambitious stunts and manoeuvres to reach them.

The result is a bizarre, madcap experience that pairs the absurd world and characters with engaging gameplay that demands you push your car's abilities to the limit to reach the hardest collectables. Sometimes it seems like the way you reach an item must be unintentional, yet it's in these moments of player-led invention and ambition that the game's mechanics shine.
