London Cab Challenge is a Crazy Taxi clone that is infamous for having slow loading times, inconsistent collision detection, and a motherlode of bugs. It's a miracle that it even got past the certification process.

Unused Graphics

Thumbs.db

Inside of MainMenu\Textures is a thumbnail database from September 13, 2005. It contains graphics that are no longer present in the folder or changed prior to the final build.

Menu Buttons

The menu buttons were originally greyed out when not selected instead of darkened.
