Official description

HOTSHOT is a futuristic sports simulation, in which you must (as usual) beat your opponent.

This is done by using your Graviton Gun to attract a deadly plasma ball, and firing it at a variety of pinball-style bumpers and blocks.

Press FIRE on your joystick to attract the ball (release it to let it go - you cannot hold the ball too long or it will blow you up), but be careful, if it hits any part of you beside the end of your Graviton Gun, you will be destroyed.

Hint: Use your Graviton Gun to affect the flight of the ball.

When holding the ball or trying to attract it, the directions of the joystick set the direction the gun points.

When not pressing FIRE, you can run (or bounce) left and right by moving the joystick LEFT or RIGHT. Pulling it down will make you duck.

There are five characters (seven on 16-bit machines), each with slightly different playing characteristics.
