Go Retro Gaming With AndroCabLite
We all love retro gaming. The elder amongst us (at least the blessed ones with Commodore 64’s) will remember a simple and addictive game called Space Taxi. The objective was simply picking up passengers from one place and dropping them off in a different one. Times may go forward, but it looks like concepts like this stick around for the long run because XDA member aposhtol has, along with a friend, developed a game for Android devices, which basically emulates this game.
