The game is as blocky and minimalist as you would expect from a ‘70s Atari effort, but it’s hardly the worst of the company’s early titles. My complaint is that it gets a little monotonous; rather than a timed game like Combat, it takes 25 hits to win the game and it can get a little tiresome. My better half and I played the slowest and fastest variations of the first maze (there are three in all) and that was more than enough. Slot Racers is an okay game but not engaging enough for long-term play.
If you want a fun two-player combat game, check out Combat, the game originally packaged with the Atari 2600. Combat offers more variations, more vehicles, better controls, and shooting action that puts this little maze game to shame.
As much as I hated playing Slot Racers, my disgust turned into despair when I realized that the game doesn't end until someone scores 25 points! I recommend you quit this game while you still have the will to live.
