Intellivision “Truckin'” in a History of Racing Games

Lance Carter’s “History of Racing Games” is an online collection of files and blog entries about racing games from the 1940’s to the present.  I am very pleased to see that my classic game “Truckin'” is listed among the titles.   You can find his pdf file about “Truckin'” here.  I’ve included a video showing “Truckin'” below.

I was inspired to make this game after years of travelling the I-5 freeway in California.  It’s a very long stretch of straight freeway with typically thousands of trucks on the road.  But caravans of trucks carrying goods to market can be seen on major and minor highways across the country.  According to Wikipedia — and I agree – “The trucking industry provides an essential service to the American economy.”
