Spending is estimated to advance another 7.1% in 2018 and will expand to $1.7 trillion total by 2022.
If anyone remembers the Crazy Taxi video game series, and had fun shuttling passengers through the wacky, turbulent, and most definitely illegal fares, you might enjoy a new app called 3D Limo Parking Simulator. It’s a fun little game, which starts you out driving what looks to be a modest 70-inch stretch through empty streets around blockades and finally in a parking space where you try to center the vehicle as quickly as possible in the green highlighted space to earn the maximum amount of points.
The game lets you steer in three ways, using left and right buttons, using a circular steering wheel on the screen, or by simply tilting the iPad in the direction you want to turn. The gameplay is fun and easy to learn, but as soon as you bump anything the game stops, and you can either try again after watching an advertisement video, or you can play without ads for $4.99. Not a bad ploy. I’m curious how many bite the bullet in their urge for uninterrupted limo parking.
As you finish levels, the vehicles get longer and the obstacle courses more challenging. After the 70-inch, you move to a full size 120-inch white Lincoln Town Car stretch limousine, and then a super-stretch Hummer. Once you play, it’s kind of addicting, and I can see how the app can cleverly make money off the ease of a click, banking off users’ rush to try to get back to that last maneuver before the next level.
Try it with some of your chauffeurs and see how they do. Does anyone else know about limousine-themed video games out there?
