The Great Red Herring Chase Gameplay

The user controlled yellow taxi tailing a "Red Herring" car.

Players control a female private eye riding in a taxi who's attempting to catch a criminal while following numerous red herrings.

To progress, players must type out commands to yell at the cabby so he can successfully tail cars. Commands initially start off basic, gradually increasing in length as the player completes levels.

Trivia

  • The game was code-named "Taxi Typer" during development.[1]
  • Announced on 2009-01-05, this was the first in a series of collaborations between Jiggmin and aeiowu that would've resulted in them making one game every day for that month.[2][3]
  • Despite not finding a sponsor, the game was eventually released on Jiggmin and aeiwou's websites several months after its completion unlike the other collaborations that couldn't get one.[4][5]
