Hard Truck 2

Very similar to the first, but more of an emphasis on delivery of goods. Police are added to the maps, but still no traffic model. Interestingly, the police only give chase for a limited time period, after which they simply give up and dispatch a machine gun crazy helicopter to attempt to slow you down. Once they've demolished your truck, they write you out a simple ticket. The game is more similar to than to Hard Truck.

Hard Truck Apocalypse

A completely different take on the hard truck games, developed by the Russian developer Targem, released on June 26, 2006, this game takes place in an apocalyptic, Mad Max like future. A disaster occurred and everyone on Earth has to wear special masks to survive. You can still perform trade runs between villages to make money however, the main method for making money is to loot destroyed enemies of cargo and weapons.

The game takes place in an apocalyptic version of Europe, with different zones depicting countries like Germany, France, England, and many more. You can drive a total of five vehicles, from a simple Van to the gigantic BelAZ. The guns vary from roof-mounted machine guns, shotguns, and mortars to laser and energy weapons.
