Tropes:

  • Bland-Name Product: The train in the intro sequence bears "Atracker" logos, a clear parody of "Amtrak".
  • Drives Like Crazy: Lizard Tail. Also the player character if you make them.
  • Product Placement: Texaco, Denny's and Holiday Inn's logos are all seen throughout the game.
  • The Faceless: Lizard Tail's face is never seen, only his shadowy figure is.
  • Hard Truckin': The player races along the country in a truck pulling cargo within the time limit. Certain payouts are even offered to which trailers are pulled. Some trailers are harder to pull, but pay more, whereas other trailers are easier to pull, but pay less.
