- TRIVIA -

City Connection was released in July 1985.

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 her 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'".
