This is a port of the Pico-8 Whiplash Taxi Co game to the MotC programming language.

Welcome to the Whiplash Taxi Company, where our motto is "The slower you're there, the lower the fare!"

As a valued employee and taxi driver, your job is to pick up passengers and deliver them to their destination as fast as possible, by any means necessary.

Controls:

  • Left/Right => Steer
  • Up/Down => Accelerate/Brake

Or plug in a game controller.

Note: If keyboard input isn't working click on the game and try again.

Passengers are easy to spot, just look for the big red arrows over their heads. 


Simply stop next to them so they can jump in! Then follow the red destination indicator to the destination and stop when it says "stop!".


Repeat this as many times as possible in 5 minutes, and see how much $$$ you can bring in.

But beware, sometimes the direct route isn't the quickest. To make it easier we have provide this giant map of Motsville. You may want to spend some time in "Free Explore" to get the layout. Or try some of the fully legitimate and not just driving-around-random-streets-way-too-fast street circuits, and maybe set a few lap records. 

Remember, at Whiplash Taxis when we say "Break neck speeds", we mean it! (Hopefully not literally. Hopefully.)
