18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker (エイティーン・ホイーラー) is a Sega NAOMI arcade semi-trailer truck driving game developed by Sega AM2 and manufactured by Sega. Released exclusively to Japanese arcades in December 1999, the game was later ported to the Sega Dreamcast courtesy of developer CRI and publisher Sega the next year, with eventual PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube ports being released one year after that.

In February 2002, Sega AM2 released a spiritual sequel, The King of Route 66.

Gameplay

In the game the player drives a large 18-wheel American truck from one destination to another, attempting to avoid obstacles (and rivals) so as not to damage the load. However, more points are awarded for fast times, and you must beat your rival in order to succeed.

Development

The Sega Dreamcast version of 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker was planned to include online play[23], but the feature was ultimately scrapped before release.
