Space Cab

After playing the awesome "Space Taxi 3" to death: http://hol.abime.net/5899/screenshot

...I'm now looking at similar / alternative titles to try out.

Can't seem to locate "Space Cab" anywhere: http://hol.abime.net/6146

Anyone have this?

Damn; tried all of these and they're pretty pants in comparison to Space Taxi 3

http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?..._quickmatch=66

...with the exception of Ugh! (which I'd already added to my WinUAE collection many months ago).

Air Taxi is ok but...

Still, would like to try out Space Cab if anyone has this

Space Cab

Heya guys,

Does anyone know where I can find Space Cab?

Would like to try it out

...have searched through all files I have on numerous hard drives and other internet resources, but no luck.

Looks like a pretty poor ripoff of Space Taxi for the C64. I wouldn't bother with it personally, play the original if you haven't though. It's a fantastic game with hilarious speech samples.

According to the link, which rygar has posted, you can find and download one on the German PD-Series "FRANZ" disk number 111.

google search for: franz+amiga+collection

Unfortunately the Space Cab game on Franz #111 is not the game DamienD is looking for, same name but different game!

found this post too:

The guy that wrote it commented on this video. Maybe message him to see if he still has it or the guy who made the video itself.

Thanks for the suggestion... unfortunately s2325 hasn't been active on EAB for some time now

Also, he's just taken screenshots / boxscan / diskscan from HOL and made a slideshow, so I doubt that he has the game.

Doubt it... I just translated Martin's comments from German --> English:

If someone has the installation disks or could provide, please contact me. THANK YOU!
Martin Schroeder is listed as one of the "Artists" on HOL... but if he is also requesting a copy

Whoever took the Boxscan and Diskscan for HOL must have this though

Pretty much everything from Tronic Verlag seems to be difficult to find.

Also merge this post: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=84488

I have found a reference in the magazine 'Aktuelle Software Markt' from November 1991.
