I absolutely adore this game! It's just all around great! Gameplay and movement is extremely fluid the characters are unique and funny, and the soundtrack is fantastic. While not quite as long as some of the 3D Mario playformers, each of the "Acts" (levels) in the game is extremely unique. In one act you are fighting the head of the mafia, while the next you are fulfilling a contract by unclogging a sewer to get your soul back from an underworld creature. There's a lot to love here! The Switch version is a bit choppier at times and does indeed take much longer to load than other versions of the game, but it doesn't take away from the experience much. The Seal the Deal DLC comes free with the Switch version as well which adds and additional chapter as well as "Death Wish" mode, which offers a bunch of new challenges to the game. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys fun and charming 3D platformers, and wants something a little more unique than what others offer.
This is a fantastic port of an amazing platformer. while there are some concessions due to the limitations of the switch in portable mode such as the resolution and anti-aliasing not being high, and some slow-down at points; it doesn't affect the enjoyment of the game. the fact that i can take this game, which is designed to be played in short bursts and not marathoned, with me is fantastic. this is why i will buy the switch port of many games.
A Hat In Time is Mario in everything but name. For an independent game, it's an an incredibly well-crafted game. While it lacks that final touch of polish you'd get in a Mario game, the effort here from the developer is commendable. This is one of the best platformers not made by Nintendo.
