Released in January 2000 in Japan (even if the titlescreen says 1999).

18 Wheeler is a part of the Sega's 'Real Life Career Series', others are "Emergency Call Ambulance", "Brave Firefighters", "Jambo! Safari", "Airline Pilots" and "Crazy Taxi".

Michael Jackson used to own this game (serial number U0098403). It was sold at the official Michael Jackson Auction on Apr. 24th, 2009.


* Better turns : Instead of turning the wheel sharply and going into a skid, try slightly turning the wheel with the turn. Braking will not be necessary because you will not be skidding off the road.

* Shifting : For Highway Cat and Stream Line, shift up when at about 50 mph.

* Slip stream : When you are behind a truck, your size you will get a slip stream. This will allow you to get a small boost to get in front of the truck.

- 0.144: Arzeno Fabrice added clone 18 Wheeler (Rev A) (JPN).

- 0.143u4: Added 18wheelr-key.bin rom.

- 0.143u1: Angelo Salese and O. Galibert hooked up proper inputs (peddle and pedal) to 18 Wheeler Deluxe.

- 0.142: Changed description to '18 Wheeler Deluxe (Rev A) (JPN)'.

- 0.141u4: Changed description to '18 Wheeler DELUXE (Rev A) (JPN)'.

- 0.141u3: Removed naomibd_prot rom.

- 22nd October 2009: Smitdogg - Thanks to Gerald (COY) we got dumps of some boards used in 18 Wheeler (837-13844 and 838-13992).

- 18th October 2009: R. Belmont - ANY and The Dumping Union bring us another NAOMI motherload. None of these do much in MAME so no screenshots, but I'm sure my buddy Cah4e3 will have something soon. The games are: Crazy Taxi, 18 Wheeler, Jambo! Safari, F355 Challenge (twin cabinet version), and F355 Challenge 2 (also twin cab). If you'd like to see more games dumped for MAME, DEMUL, Makaron and other emulators you may read about and donate to the Dumping Union at this page. Update: Crazy Taxi may have some protection beyond the usual - it obliterates Makaron, and MAME hangs at the FOR SALE IN JAPAN screen and doesn't advance. We'll see if the Demul guys come up with something.

- 15th October 2009: ANY dumped 18 Wheeler (Sega 2000).

- 27th June 2009: Smitdogg - Thanks to Gerald C. we got 18 Wheeler.

Other Emulators:

* Demul
