18 Wheeler (c) 1979 Midway Mfg. Co.

Player presses START button, shifts into 1st, 'hits the hammer' and the 18 WHEELER is on its way. The object is to keep the truck on the road, pick up cargo and make time. A shift into 2nd and 3rd gear, at appropriate MPH, creates faster action, more speed ans greater score. The game requires agility and coordination. Just about every limb is in motion. The left hand steers the authentic BIG WHEEL, the right hand operates the genuine GEAR SHIFT, the right foot works THE HAMMER accelerator and the AIR BRAKE stop.


[Game No. 653]


Released in July 1979.

Developed by Arcade Engineering for Midway.
