Description

Hot Throttle is an absurd racing game about a man in a midlife crisis who decides to leave behind his wife and children to pursue his dream of becoming a car. He strips down, and moves on hands and knees to race through different locations. The goal is to win a championship against other naked men in order to earn enough money to pay for the surgery to transform into a car completely. If he fails he has to return to his family.

The player controls his naked man, racing other naked men, on five different tracks with multiple laps. The gameplay is similar to Mario Kart, with direct control, many obstacles, and power-ups that can be picked up to attack the competition or slow them down. It is important not to bump into anything for as long as possible. The men start by running in a regular position, but by avoiding obstacles they soon get into the "zone" and move down to hand and knees to gain more speed. Players can score general points and the finishing position determines the ranking in the championship.

Between races players can spend points to upgrade body parts such as the head, shoulder or legs, deforming them further. There are also humorous drawn cut-scenes furthering the general story. Players can choose between a global championship and single races.
