Hotshot Racing


Hotshot Racing is a blisteringly fast arcade-style racing game fusing drift handling, razor-sharp retro visuals and an incredible sense of speed to create an exhilarating driving experience.
Developed by racing game veterans SUMO Nottingham and Lucky Mountain Games, Hotshot Racing is an all-new driving experience which revives the classic arcade gameplay of the 90s and thrusts it into the modern era.


16 racing circuits provide the twists, turns and straights conducive to searingly quick racing. Take in coastal, jungle, alpine and Las Vegas desert environments, with each course modelled with the most vivid colours and blue skies for miles.

Time Trial and Grand Prix modes cater to those who like to compete in classic racing formats, while ‘Cops and Robbers’ and ‘Drive or Explode’ modes offer exhilarating new ways to play.

Each mode is available in single-player, four-player split-screen and eight-player online, while Time Trial is single-player only. Single-player modes run at a blistering 60FPS to deliver one of the fastest depictions of racing possible.


Smash lap records to rise-up the global online leaderboards or download ghost laps to match your racing lines against the very best.

MEET THE HOTSHOTS

Keiko, Xing, Mike, Alexa, Aston, Toshiro, Marcus and Viktor - eight speed addicts that have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of being the greatest racing driver in the world.

CATCH THE DRIFT

Drifting is crucial in Hotshot Racing. Boost charges as the player drifts so maintaining it for as long as possible is vital to preserving maximum speed throughout a race.

DRIVE OR EXPLODE

In this mode each car has a bomb attached to it. Drop below a certain speed and BOOM! The trigger speed gets faster and faster, forcing players to maintain impossibly high speeds.

COPS AND ROBBERS

Robbers evade the cops. Cops catch the robbers, and in doing so convert them to the police side, leading to an exciting test of skill for the surviving criminals.

A WELL NEEDED BOOST

Earn boost by drifting and slipstreaming opponents and unleash a one-shot hit of speed to leave them in your rear view mirror.

  • Hotshot Racing is everything a fan of arcade racers could want, especially if you have fond memories of those aforementioned classics. It truly captures a style of racing that is so rarely seen these days. It’s fast-paced, easy to pick up and play, friendly feeling and, most importantly, it’s so much fun to play.

  • Hotshot Racing mixes best elements from 90s arcade racing games, with low-poly graphics, lively characters, and pretty good driving and drifting mechanics.

  • Hotshot Racing isn't a radical change for the racing genre, but it incorporates retro aesthetics and modern controls in a way that feels fresh and new. Hotshot Racing rejects the hyper-realism of most racing titles and instead taps into player nostalgia in such a way that it can't help but leave a smile on the face of anyone who remembers blowing their allowance on their local arcade favorite.

  • Hotshot Racing feels like a product made with passion, which at the same time manages to entertain the player and to create pleasant memories from a more "innocent" era that has passed irrevocably. The limited content and the not so interesting alternative modes deduct some points from the final rating, something that can be corrected in the future with the appropriate support from the developers.

  • High on speed and low on polygons, Hotshot Racing is a fun, old-school ode to the golden era of early ’90s 3D racers.

  • As an ode to classic racers, Hotshot Racing is a fast, fun game. It’s just let down by limited content and some frustrating AI.

  • Hotshot Racing is an enjoyable racing game that will almost certainly be enjoyed by its target audience. There isn't much content, though, and it's an extremely basic, simple game that will be extremely familiar to anyone who played racers during the 90s.

  • Hotshot Racing captures the look and feel of classic retro racers, but the track design could use more thrills.

  • Hotshot Racing is a refreshing blast of retro-arcade racing action. Every inch of each course is filled with personality, from fans waving on the sidelines to dinosaurs wandering through jungles and caves. The racers don’t come out quite so well but you spend most of the time looking at a car rather than the person driving it, so thankfully that’s not too much of a problem. The racing action feels as good as the courses look, and while eventually you learn that the first couple times around the track don’t matter so long as you’ve got a nice supply of boosts for the final lap (Normal and Hard modes only), it’s still more than fun enough to burn up the track at top speed. Hotshot Racing plays as nice as it looks and ends up being a concentrated shot of pure upbeat racing happiness.

  • Hotshot Racing is a nostalgia-tickling delight that doesn’t have quite enough depth to keep pulling you back for any real length of time.

  • Without its atrocious AI Hotshot Racing is okay. With it, it's a racing game to avoid. Genre aficionados, especially those who lean towards the more arcade side of the scale, will manage to quench their thirst for a bunch of evenings, but it's unlikely this will stay with you for long.
