Jack 'n' Hat Xbox

For those that can pull them off, hats are pretty awesome. A fashion accessory that doubles as sun protection, they’re very versatile. They are missing the ability to act like a boomerang however; throw them and they simply won’t return. Not Jack’s hat though, his will always return to him. And he’ll need to use it too to rescue the princess. Find out how he fares in Jack ‘n’ Hat on Xbox, PC and Nintendo Switch.

The world of Ririland has been plunged into civil war after Dr. Voo Doom kidnapped the princess. Ririland isn’t a world where Rihanna performs 24/7 unfortunately. Jack, a repairman, is somehow the only person in this entire land that can save the princess. No spies, armies or bodyguards. Just the humble repairman.

Another appropriately named doctor, this time Dr. Expo Zicion, has created a boomerang hat for Jack to use. With it he can defeat enemies, traverse this world, destroy obstacles and pretty much anything else he needs to do. It’s quite useful.

Save a princess in a 2D platforming game whilst wearing a magic hat? At first glance this could well be a new Super Mario game. We will have a review coming soon to see just how alike – or unalike – these games actually are.
