About The Game

Cruis'n Exotica is a 3-D driving, arcade video game featuring several tracks.


In the Las Vegas race, when you pass under the Elvis impersonater, he looks a bit like Nintendo's 1981 cash cow Donkey Kong in an Elvis suit. And you can also hear an Elvis guitar-style rendition of the Donkey Kong theme for a few seconds.

Tips and tricks

Car Selection Cheat

By pressing the view buttons you can select between the available six cars and an aditional twelve cars (low view), the colour of the car (chase view), and the person in the car (high view). If you cycle through this once you will see all the characters, on the second cycle their heads will be oversized (Clown, Baby, Blonde Lady, Guy with crew cut, etc.).
