Truckin' has to be one of the most unique games out there. Who could imagine that hauling cargo around on the highways could be fun? We actually had more fun playing demolition derby against each other than actually delivering cargo, but hey, it's all in how you play it, right? Turns out Mattel had planned an IntelliVoice game built on the same idea, probably using CB Radio chatter via the IntelliVoice for game info. Hmmm... Perhaps it's a good thing that didn't happen.

Image Vendor Part Number Year Origin Description
Truckin' Box (Imagic 710023-1A) Imagic 710023-1A 1983 U.S.A. Has stickers to correct invalid catalog number on spines; standard black tray with cardboard backing; DOES NOT have game name and catalog number on top; game title on blue background on spine

I don't know if this is really a valid variation or not. I've noticed that one of my copies of Truckin' has a 7603 number on its spine - the same as Dragonfire's box. On the other side of the spine, a 7607 sticker was put on to cover up this error. Perhaps the sticker just fell off my original copy? For what it's worth, here's what the two look like, as well as a Dragonfire box spine as reference.

Truckin' 7603 spine
The correction sticker is not applied - note the same ID number as Dragonfire.

Truckin' 7607 spine (with sticker)
This is the spine with the correction sticker applied.

Dragonfire 7603 spine
This is the Dragonfire box spine.

Title Screen Title screen for Truckin'.
Game Setup There are various ways to play the game. Cross-Country-Chicken is the best.
Split-view (Drivin, Gassin' Up) Even when you're playing one-player, you only get half the screen. Still and all, the (stereotypical) scenery you get as you drive through the country is quaint.





Rick Levine was at it again in Truckin'. I recall stumbling across this (or was it my friend Kim first?) back in the day. There is a secret road to take you to Imagic's headquarters! For a step-by-step guide, check the page from The Digital Press.
