HTR+ Slot Car Simulation

HTR+ Slot Car Simulation will satisfy those whom have been waiting to see a Slot Car simulator on the PlayStation consoles, and it delivers the experience quite well.

HTR+ Slot Car Simulation is, by it's title, a slot car simulation game that pays homage to a long-time sport of Slot Cars. It was developed and published by QUByte Interactive, and is by far one of the best Slot Car simulation game out there.

The game is presented in a three-dimensional environment, and comes with a number of cars, ranging from race cars to a hybrid-looking car. As with the mechanics of Slot Cars, the game features one up to four cars in the race field tied to their respective slots for them to duke it out to be the #1. HTR+ Slot Car Simulation also features a Track Editor where you can create your own race field to take on, and a Ranking board where you can compare your lap times with other players in the world. The controls are a bit wobbly on the menus and a bit uncoordinated on the field but it still delivers the experience that you require.

Visuals gives off a low-key look and feel to it, you can try focusing on objects in the race track and see that the graphics are "weak" as compared to the games of today's standards. The soundtrack fit's the overall theme of the game wherein tracks has it's own blend of up-beat music. It is important to note what I've experience audio stuttering during my playthrough, the in-game background music began to stutter where no audio can be heard except for the constant stuttering. I've also spotted a few glitches where cars would run off track and the game would just continue without you in the track.

HTR+ Slot Car Simulation is for those whom have wanted to see such game to arrive on the PlayStation Vita. But on the downside, the game seems to feel as if it lacks a lot of things such as a more refined gameplay, visuals, proper debugging, etc.. But for those whom have been on the wait, I'd recommend you to try it out.
