The original Hard Truck was developed by Russian developer SoftLab-NSK published by Buka Entertainment, and released on July 6,1999. It emphasized truck racing, although it had a mode where the player could deliver cargo. The maps were simple, usually with 2 or 3 routes to reach the destination, and had no traffic model.

If you ever, at the bottom of your heart, wanted to ride a powerful truck and, pushing the accelerator hard, rending the air with a hoop, see how bugs whistle off frantically to the side of the road to get out off your, the King of the road, way... If you like to take a risk, and are not scared by the other "kings" to lower the boom on them to steal their luck, than this game is for you. On the way there will be speedways, mountain windy roads, wayless parts, floods and marshes. There's no rules. No weapon. The rivals do their best to not let the player reach the destination. The advantage of the player lies in driving skills and the truck power.At a check point the driver may get a bonus, a sum of money which depends on the player place and amount of the load delivered, which can be spent for repair of the truck, or to buy new more powerful truck.
● Lake City - Commercial highway. Night city, all the roads are paved.

If you break lights, the visibility is extremely low.
● Mountville - Commercial highway. The road runs in the mountains. There is a shortcut on the way out of the mud, which requires good tires, and a long - on a paved road, but between the rock and the chasm, down which will have to start over or return to base. There is a checkpoint on a bridge across the chasm.

● Gold Fields - Commercial highway. There are several routes through the forest, a small city, swamps and lake. Part of the road is paved and dirt, with slides and tramplines, a couple of bridges broken.
