Jack ‘n’ Hat just released on Switch this past week. Thanks to a demonstration by YouTuber Super Nintendad, interested would-be players can now take an extensive view of how the game looks in action. Check out the video below.

Jack ‘n’ Hat joins a long line of 16-bit 2D platformers on Switch. If you are interested in giving the game a try, read on for a bit more about the game’s production, content, and premise.

 Jack’n’ Hat has stunning 16-bit pixel art, beautiful music and precise controls which is likely to remind you of the greatest old school platformers.

Prepare for an exhilarating platformer adventure across the world of Ririland! The evil Dr. Voo Doom has abducted Princess Riri, instigating a civil war that has plunged the Kingdom into chaos!

Is there anyone strong enough to save the distraught royal? Jack, the famous “jack-of-all-trades” repairman is ready to bring peace to the land.

Armed with the latest invention of the brilliant Dr. Expo Zicion, a hat that can be thrown like a boomerang, Jack has to travel the planet searching for Energy Crystals, the only power source that will allow him to travel to the moon and put an end to Dr. Voo Doom’s plans for world domination!

Help Jack jump and slide his way through deserts, jungles, volcanoes and battle devious enemies and dangerous bosses!

Can you save Ririland?

Jack’n’ Hat’s features include:
– 20 huge levels with secret ones to unlock!
– Collect Crystals, Gems and Stars. Can you get them all?
– Intense Boss Battles
– Unlockable abilities
– Catchy chiptune soundtrack

Promising plenty of collectibles, twenty large levels (with secret unlockable levels, to boot), boss battles and unlockable abilities, and a heartfelt retro platformer tribute with about eight hours of content, Switch owners should look into Jack ‘n’ Hat if they’re craving a retro love letter.
