King of the Hat is 2-4 player 2D party platformer where you fight with a hat! Throw your hat to attack, defend and bait opponents. But watch out! If someone jumps on your hat… you die! In King of the Hat, your hat contains your soul. Crush your opponent’s hats (and souls) to assert your dominance over them. When you throw your hat, it goes on fire and becomes invulnerable. You can use it to beat the devil out of other players or to defend against your opponents’ flaming hats. Although the basic mechanics are easy to pick up and play, King of the Hat allows for deep, hat-tastic competitive play as a 2 player game. It’s an amazing casual game that is so easy to pickup. You just throw your hat to hattack and crush theirs to win, but if yours gets crush you lose. It’s that easy! Even recommended to those who are new to gaming or for young children. However, in its simplicity, it’s skill ceiling is high due to characters’ unique tool-sets and their techs, and how punishing and rewarding in top plays. If you’re fighting against a very competitive player, getting hit once is incredibly hard to recover and will result in losing that round. It even has ROLLBACK NETCODE. Making causal and competitive online games fun!
Compare this to the Discord version while back, it has way more content with its Arcade Mode, Golf Mode, NEW CHARACTERS, NEW STAGES and additional rules and items to casually play around. In addition, it’s way more polish with its GUI and and other quality of life improvements. I’ve been following this game in development entirely through discord for the past few years since that’s where the game originated, and my steam counted hours don’t reflect my total time. I have thousands of hours on this game and ive seen it through everything from ranked queues to tournaments, testing builds, and MANY MANY games in friendlies. The game at first glance has a very intuitive menu that’s easy to navigate, if you’ve played smash the menu is pretty similar, but the gameplay is anything but smash, it’s very volatile with how fast paced fights can get, but it handles that pacing really well with its defensive mechanic of hats clanking together. The game itself can feel a little over defensive at times, but once you get an idea for how your character works, there’s a ton of counterplay.
Every character brings something new to the table which keeps matches interesting, all while keeping the same idea intact which brings a variety of gameplay every time you play. There’s a bunch of tech/advanced movement lots of characters can do if you want to play competitively and it makes the matches even more volatile. This can even be further expanded using the games items or special modes if you decide to mess around with those. One thing to note is in the games current state, you will need to join the discord server if you want to find any matches because there’s no in game matchmaking, although if the game succeeds this might change Been following this for a few years now. If you like platform fighters you’ll certainly love this. Fun, accessible, fast paced and a vibrant and colorful aesthetic, King of the Hat is great as a party game or if you want to get sweaty and competitive with your buds. Also has the most committed and passionate group of devs I have ever seen! Definitely worth a try if you’re a Smash player.
