Crazy Taxi Classic is currently free in the Google Play Store

Sega wants you to get hyped for its latest entry in the Crazy Taxi franchise by reliving the glory of the original game for free. Save yourself $5 and snag this classic game today!

If you're wondering what the catch is, Sega has loaded the free version of the game with ads. We're talking a bunch of ads in all the menus. Fortunately, once you're into the game, it's a really solid port of the classic game from 2000, complete with The Offspring blaring over the radio.

The new Crazy Taxi game is Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire (opens in new tab), a new idle clicker game that also features songs from The Offspring and familiar art style and characters — but lacks the frantic driving action of Crazy Taxi Classic. If we had to choose between the two, we'd certainly choose Crazy Taxi Classic, but with both currently free, you may as well check out both!

  • My Galaxy S7 Edge isn't compatible with this game, apparently.
  • runs on my S7 none Edge
  • I got the same message. Reading the reviews though it sounds like we dodged a bullet with the super spammy ads in-game.
  • This game is incompatible with all my devices haha
  • Ditto, and that includes my Nexus 6P.
  • Can run it on the pixel but not my note 5
  • Runs on my Verizon Note 5, latest firmware.
  • What's a taxi? Is that like an Uber for old people?
  • A clicker version of this crazy classic game? No thanks. I rather play the dumb down version, Crazy Taxi City Rush. At least that was fun. I do appreciate the port though.
  • Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire is the clicker. Crazy Taxi Classic is the proper driving style game.
  • My reply is actually pointed on the last paragraph of the article which mentioned Gazzilionare. I'll never get the craze on clicker games. I tried a few like Tap Titans and Demon Party but they never lasted a few days on my phone.
  • Not available in US..
  • How about now? I see it on my end.
  • See it now! Cool. Thanks.
  • Runs well on G6. Just a ton of ADs and I can't figure out the controls. I remember being able to Jump using the Y button on my Dreamcast way back when unless that was Crazy Taxi 2
  • Ads and IAP != Free
  • Amazon Underground had it Free years ago. It never got updated. Truly one of the better/best Dreamcast games during its day.
