The unusual game design of Hotshot retains its fast-paced and enjoyable gameplay in both these versions, even though there is an occasional illogical ball movement. The metallic definition on the ST gives an appropriate high-tech feel and it sports a switchable moving platform in some stages, adding an interesting, if difficult, angle to play.
Hotshot breaks no new ground regarding graphics and the sound is no more than adequate, but its gameplay is excellent - skill and tactics play an important part in the outcome.
Full marks must be given to Prism Leisure for dreaming up this quite extraordinary and original game. Hotshot combines the addictive properties of two great arcade pursuits, Breakout and Pinball, with the sporting competitiveness of simultaneous, two-player participation. However, the unique controls are very unforgiving and quite irritating to the beginner, and they will test the resolve of the most ardent game-player. But with perseverance, a certain amount of enjoyment can be gained from this hybrid game.
It's addictive stuff but lacks depth and variety because there aren't many screens and they get tough too soon.
