TrickyHot Tub HeistThere's only one thing Frankie Hottub hates more than when hot tub-abducting aliens try to abduct Frankie Hottub's hot tub: when they steal the rest of the building along with it! Hot Tub Heist is a gloriously silly action arcade game from Beef Jack Studios.

It stars a Speedo-clad body-builder who must abandon his daily GTL routine, in order to battle through a collapsing high rise, to reach the safety of the alien-proof subway below. Hot Tub Heist is goofy, but its constant race to the bottom is a compelling premise. It never stops being cool to watch the building disintegrating around you as you try to stay a half step in front of the extraterrestrials. Gameplay doesn't really get any more complex than what's presented at the start, and, not to mince words, we would have all appreciated if the developers gave Frankie's pixelated Speedo a more distinguishing color than it has. Overall, though, action fans will find Hot Tub Heist soaks up a coffee break quite nicely.

Love the premise! The character designs and the collapsing building are great! Hate the sloppy controls.

Earning bonus abilities for hitting point targets is really cool, but the levels feel way too random and unbalanced. Often I find myself flailing against the walls kicking everything in sight.

It's much too easy to descend the building along the outside. The devs did make it so you die if you fall for too long off the screen, but it's pretty easy to prevent this by dashing into the side of the building again.

It's a fun game for 15 minutes, but it needs a lot of polish if it wants to contend with bigger titles!
