Idle Taxi Tycoon is another variation of the classic idle games developed by Kolibri Games. This game allows you to manage your own taxi company in town and expand as much as you can. Idle games like these are perfect for people who want to enjoy a game but don’t have enough time to dedicate to it. If you haven’t played this game before, it could be a fun experience and we here have a detailed beginner’s guide and some tips and tricks for you. So let’s get into it!
Downloading Idle Taxi Tycoon
Upgrade your taxis and station as much as possible
In Idle Taxi Tycoon, upgrading every feature of your taxis is critical. All of the upgrades increase your incoming revenue slightly. When it comes to taxi upgrades, you have four options: Body, Engine, Bumper, and Wheels. Some of these require more money than others, but it’s always worth doing it. The rates raise with each taxi you unlock, but spending money will earn you money.
Taxis aren’t the only thing you need to upgrade. The taxi station in itself has a lot of factors in it to upgrade. There’s the call center, the break room, and the waiting room in the station. Each of them has various elements to upgrade, like the chairs, more decorations, ventilation, etc. These upgrades will also increase your revenue value a bit more. You can also expand each of these units and add more units like a kitchen or a bathroom to them. Fully upgrading any object, up to level 10, in this game also grants you coffee which will help you improve the taxi drivers. Let’s learn more about them.
Collect and invest in your taxi drivers
As you keep unlocking taxis in the game, you’ll need more taxi drivers to drive them. Without one, you’ll typically have to manually tap and send your taxi across town. When you give a taxi to a taxi driver, they drive it around town on their own, make some money, and then return to the break room to continue the cycle. When it comes to getting a taxi driver, you can do so by buying them from the shop using diamonds, the premium currency. But that’s not a very F2P-friendly way of getting them, so there are some missions and tasks you can do in the game to earn them like using the helicopter or completing a dash.
All the taxi drivers have their special rarity. The rarer the character, the better their stats are. The coffee that you earn from upgrading items will help you level up your drivers and make them much more efficient. When you have the same card as a driver, you can also promote them. When it comes to leveling up drivers, regardless of rarity, we recommend that you do it equally for all of them. This is because when playing dash, you’ll require drivers that have been updated.
Remember to participate in Dash
This is a mini-game available in Idle Taxi Tycoon. In the dash game, you must assemble a group of drivers with sufficient dash power to complete the stage’s requirements. There are a total of 24 stages to complete, each of which is broken into rounds. Winning the final round or stage wins you a new driver or extra cards to promote an existing driver.
The dash campaign in Idle Taxi Tycoon is pretty simple. Each round has a dash requirement, as represented by the cloud-wing-like icon. The power of the team of drivers you choose for each round is also combined to create your unique look and drive. Drivers may not be capable of taking on the challenge on their own, but if their type meets the required driver kinds for the round, they will receive a 2x boost in-dash power. So make sure to use up all of your coffee points and upgrade your drivers.
Complete all of the missions
If you’re unsure what to do in the game, you can always look at the missions and finish them. It can be a good progression guide and help you move forward in the game. The current objective is displayed in the upper right corner of the screen. You’ll only be able to see one objective at a time, but it’s a vast list that never seems to stop. The missions usually revolve around doing upgrades at some level, unlocking stuff, and participating in Dash. Completing all of the missions will grant you a bit of the reward which can help you advance a lot further in the game.
Ad boosts are very helpful
Any idle game nowadays will have a ton of ads in it. But those ads can also give you many boosts to progress faster in the game. There are different types of boosts that you can go for. The first one is the 2x multiplier which doubles the revenue you earn for 15 minutes in real-time. It can be stacked up to 2 hours. The other kind of boost is the Instant Cash boost where watching an ad gives you a big amount of cash. The third kind is increasing the speed of the taxis, granting you the revenue faster than usual. The last one is the one you get after completing Dash, letting you get double the rewards.
Overall, there is some amount of effort you need to put into Idle Taxi Tycoon. But that’s only at the beginning of the game, once you have good enough upgrades, earning money isn’t very hard and you can enjoy the game in its entirety. So don’t forget to have fun and Happy Gaming!
