Play OverviewPlay Overview

Hotshot Racing (2020) is a simple and fast racing game where you have to drift around corners and 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.

Our examiner, Wesley Williams, first checked Hotshot Racing 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Andy Robertson and updated 13 days ago.
