''SUPER'''HOT''''' is [[ArcWords the most innovative shooter we've played!]] In it, time only moves when you move. If youíre standing still, time nearly stops, slowing bullets to a crawl and stopping enemies in their tracks. If you move, bullets will zip right at you and enemies will start shooting again. Once you've used up a gunís mag, you have no choice but to [[ThrowAwayGuns throw it at your enemies]] and grab one of their weapons, unless you'd rather take them down up close and personal. [[RuleOfCool It's friggin' cool.]]

* ThrowAwayGuns: Guns have limited ammo, so throwing them away is a given. You also end up throwing your weapons away when a level ends for the sake of looking cool.

* ThrowAwayGuns: Guns have limited ammo, so throwing them away is a given. Throwing your weapon is also much faster than waiting for the next bullet to cycle into the chamber if you're using the pistol or shotgun. You also end up throwing your weapons away when a level ends for the sake of looking cool.

Added DiffLines:

** Subverted in the Throwing Challenge: Your guns can't fire, but anything that makes contact with an enemy (if it hasn't been shattered first) kills on impact. That entire bar? 64 lethal throwing knives. Have fun.

''SUPER'''HOT''''' is an interesting little shooter with a different kind of gameplay: Time only moves when you move. If youíre standing still, time will (almost) stand still. If you move, bullets continue to speed past you and your enemies will start shooting again.
Once you've used up a gunís mag, you [[ThrowAwayGuns have no choice but to throw the gun away]] because youíre motivated to scoop up another piece from a dead enemy or take them down up close and personal, and [[RuleOfCool it's friggin' cool.]]
