Danny Sullivan's Indy Heat is a 1991 arcade game by Leland Corporation featuring American Indy Car driver Danny Sullivan. It was licensed to Tradewest who commissioned Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64, NES and Sega Mega Drive ports for release in the following year.

While the NES version (developed by Rare) and computer versions (as Indy Heat) made it to store shelves, the Mega Drive version, despite reportedly being complete, did not. A prototype has since been unearthed and dumped, but was not released into the public domain - instead fifty physical cartridges were produced during a short production run in summer 2011.[3] The state of the prototype is not currently known.


Players control a Indycar. A is for acceleration, B for turbo and C for brakes.
