Menus and gameplay are in Japanese.

The Dekotora or Decotora, an abbreviation for "Decoration Truck", is a kind of loudly decorated truck most commonly found in Japan and the Philippines. Dekotora commonly have neon or ultraviolet lights, extravagant paints, and shiny stainless or golden exterior parts. These decorations can be found on both the cab and the trailer, and not only on the exterior but also in the interior. Dekotora may be created by workers out of their work trucks for fun, or they may be designed by hobbyists for special events. They are sometimes also referred to as Art Trucks.

In 1976, Toei released the first entry in a series of 8 movies called Truck guys that featured as the protagonist a costumed trucker who drove his garishly decorated truck all over Japan. This movie was a big hit with both old and young, and caused a wave of Dekotora popularity to sweep the country. While Dekotoras were present throughout the 1970s, before the movie they were restricted to the north-eastern fishing transport trucks. It is possible that the movie was an attempt to popularise these kinds of trucks. In those days, ready-made parts for trucks were not easily available, so these trucks freely utilised parts from sightseeing buses or US military vehicles.

Modern times:
Since the late 1990s, Dekotora have been heavily influenced by the art of Gundam. In addition to the Gundam-influenced designs, it is common to see decorations that are more akin to modern art, or even retro designs that closely resemble those found in the movie Trucker.

There is a large amount of variation in the designs and equipment used in Dekotora, much of it owing to the individual tastes of the owners or groups that use the trucks.

However, because the installation of these decorations can change the length, height and weight of the truck, for Dekotora used on highways for transportation and shipping these modifications have to pass inspection and be approved, and any departures from the regulations cleared.

The Art comes from the delightful designs that can be added to the truck with a few bob in your pocket complete with flashing chilli lights for the dashboard a sign of good taste on the highways of Japan.

Art Camion Geijutsuden let the player to doll his truck up with pretty paints, colors and designs and motor off into big-rig races against other decorated behemoths. The game features different game modes, the most important one is the story mode in which the player plays a truck driver and defeating different drives provide him with money that he can use to tune the truck, the game features day and night races.
