    A few months ago I released my first Android game: Plane Popper. Yesterday, I released my second. It's called Crazy Taxi Driver and can be found on the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=bob.template.crazytaxi

    This one was kinda quick and dirty and mostly meant as a test/demonstration for the Android 2D game engine that I made. My engine is open-source so anyone with some programming background who wants to look at it can find it on GitHub here: https://github.com/Bobbyloujo/BobEngine

    Unfortunately, I'm pretty busy with school and I don't have time to make tutorials for BobEngine. I'll probably make more examples and some tutorials over Thanksgiving break. There are two examples and some documentation included though so if you want to try and figure it out be my guest :) It's pretty simple so if you've already had some experience with Android development it shouldn't be too hard.

    Also if anyone is into reskinning/reselling apps Crazy Taxi Driver will be for sale on Chupamobile.

    Follow me on Twitter if you like what I do: @Bobbyloujo
    I post on there more than here :)

    Isn't Crazy Taxi copyrighted by Sega?

    Hmm maybe. Didn't stop quite a few others from using similar names. I guess I'll change it if there's a problem.

    Definitely a risky title. Maybe call it Craziest Taxi Driver? Insane Taxi Driver?
    Just spewing things out of my butt, but I guess there is nothing to worry about if you are not contacted.

    Hmm. Maybe "Craziest" would be better. It's not much different but it's not "Crazy". I'll think about that. I'll wait to see if it passes review on Chupamobile first. (Not sure if they'll let me change the name without resubmitting it...)

    ...oh. sorry. It's not actually that much like SEGA's Crazy Taxi. It didn't even have to be a taxi... or cars for that matter. It could've been fish themed, spaceship themed... really any theme. That was the point since I'm going to try to sell it to people to reskin with whatever theme they want. Taxi was just the first thing that came to my mind. I actually hadn't even seen the original Crazy Taxi, only heard the name (and didn't know it was SEGA's).

    Anyway I'm sorry I disappointed you so very much :P /sass
