Hot Runner and Dawn Coyote is a platform game featuring the characters of the same names from Azumanga Preschool developed by Azumanga Interactive and published by Bandai Namco Games for the Bandai Extreme, Bandai CD and Bandai CD Revolution.
The game is a hack of the Sega Genesis game Desert Demolition Starring Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. The title characters Hot Runner and Dawn Coyote (who are characters from an anime with in an anime in Azumanga Preschool) are similar to Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote.
Each level is split up into two parts, plus a bonus level if the player finishes with at least 125 stamps. Players get a choice between playing as either:
Dawn Coyote - Players get to use his tricks which he uses in the anime cartoons from Azumanga Preschool. By jumping into a Kamineko box, players can fly in his bat suit, skate, get springs on his feet to jump and so on. Catching up to Hot Runner earns the player various benefits though this is not required to complete the level. Playing as Dawn Coyote puts a heavier emphasis on platforming and avoiding traps.
Hot Runner - Players must try to escape from Dawn Coyote and complete the level by getting to the other end. If players get caught by Dawn Coyote, they lose health. Hot Runner can scare Dawn Coyote by using his "beep beep" catchphrase or running him over, which gives the player items. Playing as Hot Runner focuses on gaining speed with springs, speed wheels, and looping tracks.
Desert - The familiar desert landscape, in which the player must navigate through sharp cacti and high cliffs. Chiyo-Father make an appearance in Dawn's bonus level, where he must jump from rocket to rocket as they climb ever higher. Hot Runner's bonus stage has him racing around a cloverleaf track to collect items.
Mexico - A mexican village with many precarious platforms. In some places, Dawn Coyote must keep his balance to cross tightropes. Mr. Tadakichi makes an appearance in Dawn's bonus level as he uses the Kamineko Bat costume to collect items, while Hot Runner's bonus level consists of climbing up a waterfall on falling logs, where Yomi hits Tomo in the head.
Train - Roof-top chase on top of a train and later the maze of tracks. Both characters share a bonus level in which they have to outrun the train, while Yukari waits at the finish line.
Mines - This level takes place in a cavern. Dawn can use drills and escalators to get to the bottom. Chiyo Chan and Osaka make an appearance in Dawn's bonus level as he drills his way through a cave as fast as possible. Hot Runner's bonus level reprises the cloverleaf track from the desert stage.
Arizona - Resembles the first level, but at nighttime. The second half heavily involves Hot Runner's speed or Dawn's Bat costume to climb the steep rock walls. Both characters share the same bonus stage, which is the waterfall-climbing area from before.
Kamineko Factory - A single stage consisting of a boss fight against a giant bomb-throwing forklift.
