About This Game

Top Hat is a 2D action adventure platformer, just like old NES games. If you are tired of “games” in which you get hit by heavy machine gun and grenades, and all you need to do is cover behind the wall to replenish HP, then Top Hat is a perfect game for you!
The story is about a golden top hat that has been stolen from our Hero. Now he has to to get it back. On his adventure the Hero will visit seven worlds, each one with his own graphic style.

The hero will meet many kinds of NPCs:
  • we will help a guy with lost wallet,
  • drink many bottles of rum with a pirate captain,
  • smoke some strange tobacco with an old guy in the desert
and more! In the game we have seven kinds of weapon. Some are meant for killing and some for changing the game mechanics e.g.
  • a platform gun, which shoots platforms, of course on which we can jump,
  • a freeze gun which, of course, freezes our enemies.
The game is meant to be hard and addictive, so if you were playing much on NES as a child it's a perfect choice for you.

Game Features:
  • Seven worlds, each with 3 levels and a boss to fight (from fourth stage each level is divided on two parts).
  • Each stage contains its own graphics style.
  • Seven kinds of weapons, for example a platform gun which shoots platforms that you cam jump on.
  • Mini quests.
  • Funny cutscenes and other stuff.
  • Awesome chiptune soundtrack made by Jakim.
  • ACHIEVEMENTS. YAY.
  • WE WILL PLAY ON YOUR NOSTALGY FEELINGS, BRO.
  • Challenging. Really.

I bought this game in DRM free version, and choice is simple - if you love challenging platformers - buy Top Hat.
It's really hard but also satisfying.
Must have position on your retro game list.

Well, time to throw out my review for Top Hat.
At the time of writing this I'm currently at the fourth world in the game, which took me a little over an hour to get to, playing on normal.

For $10 you're going to get at least 2-3 hours of gameplay. Depending on what difficulty you play on of course!
The game's music is pretty retro, fits in very nicely. The designs of the levels from what I can tell vary drastically.
The dialogue is extremely casual, many uses of "lol" in it. The characters throw out some jokes here and there, some of which I thought were funny.

Only fought three bosses in the game so far, the first is very simple, was kinda dissapointed, but they do get better in my opinion.
Here's a video of one of the boss fights:

Also a variety of different weapons, such as a gun that shoots platforms, and a freeze gun.

I would reccomend this game to anyone that likes retro platformers!
Check it out and see if you like it!

Cool platformer, it has a really noticable retro feel.

I've bought it before it got released on Steam and so far enjoyed its first 3 worlds.

This game is awesome, I had really great fun while playing Top Hat. For me it's successor of Dizzy.

Jesli chcesz sprobowac swoich sil w dobrej grze zrecznosciowej wymagajacej myslenia i refleksu dobrze trafiles wybierajac Top Hat. Gra sprawia z kazdym krokiem do przodu coraz wiecej satysfakcji. Rozmaite pułapki i mozliwosc rozszerzania ekwipunku dodaja smaczku rozgrywce. Plusem są takze ukryte bonusy ktore mozna spotkac na swojej drodze. Gorąco polecam.
