Scrolling's smooth and car sprites are neatly defined but backgrounds are dull, repetitive and lacking in colour. Sound effects are lively and music jolly. By far the best thing about Commodore Hot Rod is the intro sequence.

Zzap!
Neat attract mode with superlative Maniacs of Noise title track. Heavy multiload though and no continue-plays. Small but detailed cars. Colourful backdrops make up for the featureless tracks. A good variety of Maniacs tunes and spot effects. Two-player element gives the game a competitive spirit from the start. Tracks aren't all that varied leaving only the different graphic backdrops to hold the attention. Solo games can get repetitive.

Power Play
Nachdem schon "Scramble Spirits" für den C 64 am besten umgesetzt wurde, macht auch bei "Hot-Rod" die C 64-Version das Rennen. Im Vergleich zu den etwas geschluderten Amiga- und ST-Adaptionen schlägt sich die grafisch und spielerisch klar führende C 64-Variante ganz wacker.

Ich frage mich, wie es die SEGA-Leute wohl geschafft habe, die Zocker damals vor ihren Automaten zu kriegen. Irgendwie muß da einiges anders gewesen sein. HOT ROD ist als Computerspiel jedenfalls ein Reinfall. Wer auf die Vorgänger und Vorbilder Supersprint und Super Cars zurückgreift, ist eindeutig besser bedient.
