Tiny Taxi

A classic arcade game from the 80s redesigned for touch devices.

Description

The 80s arcade classic "Space Taxi" was the template for the development of Tiny Taxy for iOS devices. The gameplay remained essentially identical, but the controls were adapted for touch devices.

At the halfway point of this project, Apple announced that they would be moving away from the Objective-C programming language and using Swift instead. Since Swift seems much easier for me to understand and write as a designer, I updated the code to Swift and finished Tiny Taxi entirely in Swift.
