Cruis’n Blast is a racing game based on a series of big arcade machines. Competing with games like Ridge Racer, OutRun and Daytona USA. It's whacky racing with big and bombastic visuals and characters.

The game offers 23 vehicles of various styles (sports cars, tanks and even a unicorn). As you can tell this is on the far end of fantasy arcade racing. The game offers five real-world locations (London, Madagascar, Rio de Janeiro, Death Valley, Singapore and California) but these continue the fantasy theme with buildings collapsing, planes crashing and Ferris wheels rolling across the road.
