About The Game
City Connection has the player controlling a small red car and must jump between platforms to colour them in as it drives over them. Oil cans can be collected and shot at the police, taxis, ambulances etc. that roam the levels. Flag waving cats must also be avoided.
The main sprite resembles a Honda City hatchback, which may explain the game's title.
The main character is a 15 year old girl named Clarice (Kurarisu) drives around the world in his love car (Clarice's car - Kurarisuka) looking for the ideal man. This explains the hearts after losing a life and the girl that appears every time you beat a level. Clarice's name appears at the bottom of the High score rankings.
Approximately 1,000 units were produced (based on serial number). Kitcorp licensed this title and sold it as "Cruisin'".
