Karma Cab

  • Generic Company Place Holder Karma Cab

It's a Bollywood cab ride turned into a video game. In other words, it's a potential tandoori plate of awesome. The passenger makes comments in the back seat in a singsong fashion. He might say something as banal as "You look familiar..." or perhaps a slightly snarkier remark like "What's that smell?" As you're matching up scrolling shapes along the bottom, you're also deciding how you'll react: Take the comments in stride or be a complete jerk. I'll give you one guess what I did.

While I think it's really smart that you never get to see the road as you drive, it might be a little cooler to see the cabbie careening down city streets. As for the music...well, I'm no big follower of the Indian movie scene, but the music here could be a lot catchier. Hey, no slight intended to the crew: You still have a fun game on your hands here--it could use just a little more spice. Eh? Get it? Oh, never mind.
