Space Taxi 2

Andreas Spreen
D-pad: Move in that direction    Red button: Extend legs for landing and retract extended legs
P key: Pause / Resume

The previous work "Space Taxi" has been significantly improved.
Published at the end of 1994, and a disk version was made in 1995.
Continued distribution as freeware.

5 to 6 levels are prepared for each of the 6 courses, and the course can be chosen on the title screen.
You can start from the first level of the chosen course.
A big change in specifications is that it is difficult to earn scores.
It is thought that this is due to the compelling factor for name entry (ranking in the score)
rather than increasing difficulty.

This game can be chosen with the software "Assassins CD 2" for CD32.
If the loading from CD is annoying, copy the data in the CD ("SPACE_TAXI_II" folder and files inside) to HD.
There is also a method of transferring the ADF file on the net into your own diskette.
However, neither is rational.
This "Space Taxi 2" is completely included in the later "Space Taxi 3".
It is rational to transfer the ADF file of "Space Taxi 3" on the net into your own disktte.

Here, levels that could not be played due to bugs in "Space Taxi" and newly additional levels in "Space Taxi 2" are summarized.
