Review of 'Hotshot'

Rating:4 User: Alessandro Grussu

Hotshot is an interesting idea turned into a neat if a little shallow game. It is a variation on the Breakout theme where you control the ball by shooting it with a sort of magnetic gun. You must clear each screen from the bricks to proceed to the next level, and take care not to be hit by your ball, or the other shot by your opponent in one-versus-on screens. Other hazards include bumpers and blocks.

The idea has been well executed, the game looks and plays pretty well, but after a few goes you'll see everything it has to offer. 7/10.
