"From the studio that brought us such eShop disappointments as Zombie Slayer Diox, Samurai G and clear game of the year contender Chuck E. Cheese's Arcade Room, we now get a Western-themed mess called Johnny Hotshot. And it manages to feel almost consciously terrible.
The story of this game is irrelevant, but since the developer saw fit to include a long and sloppily rendered cutscene explaining what happened, we'll let you know that a young man spills some soda on an arcade game and gets sucked into it, which is a scientifically sound plot development if there ever was one. Unfortunately the game he was playing was a really bad one, so now you're stuck with Johnny Hotshot.", writes NintendoLife.
