A very charming mission-based platformer. A Hat in Time is comprised of multiple chapters. The missions in these either take place on a section of a larger world (that you can choose to explore, but the missions point you in a certain direction) or singular more individual levels.
The more unique levels are the highlight of A Hat in Time. The second chapter is a highlight of a game, with lots of different missions, from one that’s a murder mystery to a mad dash across a collapsing train.
The platforming feels very precise, with a simple but effective control system that reminds me of Super Mario 64
