Awexome Cross is a game of speed and skill. Playing as The Cheat, you must ride the Tire through an obstacle course in Strong Badia. It is based off of the event Awexome Cross '98 that appeared in monster truck.

  • Collect much buxx.
  • Collect turbos to speed up the tire.
  • Collect power...downs if you're going too fast.

The obstacles are General Tso's Chicken, cinder blocks, syrup bottles, and boxes. If you hit an obstacle, you lose a life. At the end of each level, you launch off the Stop Sign, and then add up your points with Strong Mad. You also get a trophy and an extra life at the end of each level. There are a total of seven levels.

Fun Facts

Remarks

  • This game was originally an Easter egg in monster truck, but it is now featured on the Games menu. The original version had only one level.
  • The title reads "Awexome Cross 98," but to the right in smaller print it reads "1987."
  • A version of this game was created for the Game Boy Advance, available here.
  • The accuracy counter at the end of level screen, which only takes buxx and deaths into account, never goes higher than 84%.

Glitches

  • In the old version, it is possible to get stuck in the air by jumping and hitting an obstacle at the same time.
  • The pickups and the obstacles move at different speeds.

Real-World References

  • The title screen resembles the game "Indianapolis 500."
  • The sound effects for jumping, crashing and collecting buxx are taken from the game "Super Mario Brothers" for the NES.
  • The sound effect for Strong Mad slapping the Tire between levels comes from the arcade game "Qix".
  • The "Yeah, you won" screen shows a scene similar to the Super Off Road series of video games.

Fast Forward
