Summary
  • Time Warner Interactive Group's $99.99 Hell Cab CD-ROM is a multimedia computer game with amazing graphics and sound effects but with so much memory requirement, the game runs very slowly on both Macintosh and PC. The premise of the game is a taxi ride in New York in which the user has no cash to pay the fare and is forced to go through a variety of adventures to get out of debt. The debt can also be reduced by selling parts of the player's soul. The adventures include challenges in the Jurassic age, the Roman Empire and World War I and force the user to make choices about whether to be merciful or not and how that affects the user's amount of remaining soul. The artwork, music and sound effects in Hell Cab are very good and the game also includes some interesting movie clips.
