Fasten your seat belts; Hulkamania is taking over Bay City! SEGA Networks Inc. today announced that internationally renowned entertainer Hulk Hogan is taking over Crazy Taxi™ City Rush. The month-long Hulkamania Takeover event features the bombastic voice, likeness, and signature attitude of the 12-time World Wrestling Champion in a variety of costumes from his illustrious career, and will include bonus gameplay and themed content to unlock. The Hulkamania Takeover is a free update for Crazy Taxi City Rush and is now available on iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch® and Android devices.
“I carefully choose my projects and what I align the Hulkamania brand with,” said Hulk Hogan. “Crazy Taxi City Rush is a natural fit as it truly compliments my fun, larger-than-life attitude with such an iconic brand. Can you handle the Hulkster when he’s driving your taxi, brother?”
The taxi riders of Bay City have become Hulkamaniacs, giving every player the chance to hire Hulk Hogan as a driver and earn bonus fare for every crash, smash, and pickup. As players use Hulk Hogan, they will fill up the Hulkameter to unlock unique Hulk Hogan-themed customizations for their taxis that add a ride bonus, and bragging rights. Players must reach level four before Hulk Hogan can be hired as a driver. But once unlocked, he will be available for hire in any mission, lending his own voice to in-game dialogue.
Starting today, players will be able to compete in the Crazy Taxi Hulkamania Takeover sweepstakes. Utilizing Kamcord, a leading gameplay recording and sharing technology, players will be able to take their craziest Hulk Hogan-driven rides and share them to Twitter using the hashtag #CrazyTaxiHulk. Random winners will be chosen each week, culminating in the grand prize: a signed Hulk Hogan Crazy Taxi City Rush taxi.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with SEGA Networks and watching them successfully take my bombastic personality and put it into their game,” said Hulk Hogan. “Looking forward to all the crazy stunts you Hulkamania fans will post using me and my 24-inch digital pythons!”
