OverviewOverview

Hotshot Racing is a simple and fast racing game. You have to drift round corners, hit the apex on razor-sharp bends in coastal, jungle, alpine and Las Vegas desert environments.

It all looks like you've gone back to the 90's arcades but the gameplay is right up to date. Time Trial and Grand Prix modes are joined by more novel challenges like Cops and Robbers and Drive or Explode. Drive or Explore means that each car has a bomb attached to it, go too slow and it explodes. Cops n' Robbers means that you have to evade the police.
