Rating Summary
This is an adventure platformer in which players assume the role of Hat Girl, a young space traveler trying to recover her lost magical hourglasses. From a third-person perspective, players traverse fantastical environments, collecting items and battling enemies. Players can defeat enemies by using punches/melee attacks and bashing them with whimsical weapons (e.g., umbrellas). A brief cutscene depicts a red chalk drawing of blood streaks and a jar filled with "cartoony" eyeballs. One prolonged sequence depicts an impaled murder victim (an owl character) lying in a large pool of blood; it is later revealed that the blood and murder are fake.
