Hot Wheels Unleashed Design Battle Contest
Hot Wheels Unleashed Design Battle is an exclusive contest for the community of the arcade racing game of the same name. For decades, Hot Wheels has pushed the limits of automotive performance and design.

Getting behind the wheel
Not familiar with Hot Wheels Unleaded? Do not worry, we’ve got you covered. Hot Wheels Unleashed shrinks players to compete in toy-sized competitive racing. Although the idea of a Hot Wheels theme game may be niche on paper, if you like arcade racers, then this game is worth a try. Despite details provided, it’s impossible to know how well a game plays until you play it. The game powers through a niche market to deliver a competitive and fun experience. Not only that, the visuals of the game are beautiful albeit they will not break any records. Overall, the game sets an immersive atmosphere from the visuals to flavor text of certain game modes. I’m not the biggest Hot Wheels toy fan, but I am definitely a fan of Hot Wheels Unleashed. Not convinced? Then check out our Unleashed review.
