    Cruis'n World © 1996 Midway Mfg. Co.

    Cruis'n World is a direct sequel to "Cruis'n USA", and is again a point-to-point racing game, with each race having the player racing against nine rival drivers.

    Unlike its USA-set prequel, Cruis'n World's races take place in a variety of global locations, such as the Egypt, London and France. Players can race in any one of twelve countries ranked by difficulty, or drive the entire world through fourteen tracks.

    While the core gameplay remains the same, new time-saving stunt moves have been introduced in the form of wheelies and jumps, and many tracks now feature short-cuts.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Hidden Cars: Hold View 1 or View 2 at the car selection screen to access two sets of hidden cars. Hold View 1 + View 3 to access a third set of hidden cars.
    • Alternate Car Color: Press View 3 at the car selection screen.
    • Hidden Tracks: Hold View 1, View 2, or View 3 at the race selection screen to access the Hawaii, Africa and Australia tracks.
    • View Credits: Press View 1 + View 3.
    • Jump over Cars: To jump over a slower moving car or one coming at you, pull a wheelie right before you hit it. If you do it right you should still be pulling a wheelie when you hit the car you are jumping over and will not crash.
    • Wheelie and Turbo Boost: To pop a wheelie and gain some acceleration, double-tap the gas while driving. NOTE: If you're playing in Manual mode, you can also do this by switching from fourth gear to neutral and back.
    • Ride on 2 Wheels: To race on 2 wheels, double-tap the gas while turning a corner.
    • Back Flip: When you are going up a hill, do a wheelie at the top.
    • Side Flip: Do a wheelie while turning, then press in the opposite direction of your turn to flip on your side.
    • Honk your Horn: While racing, press Start to honk your horn. The Humvee will fire it's machine gun if you do this.
    • Short Cut in Hawaii: Before the tunnel you'll see construction cones. Go through them on the forest side and it'll take you up a 2-track and off a cliff.
    • Shortcut in China: When racing in China, you will find a break in the sides of the wall. Hit the gas and cut your wheel. It will take you through the break in the wall and across a country road before rejoining the game ahead of your competition.
    • Shortcut in New York: The shortcut through the Big Apple is on the third exit through a construction zone!
