The FOUR HATS in "Hat Tricks": The Four Hats, Parker, Holly, Gordo and Danny star in their first addictive iOS game! All the band wants is to hit the studio and work on their next album but their adoring fans won't leave them alone. The Four Hats fandom is so intense that their fans have torn their last 3 drummers limb from limb. The only thing left for a rock star to do is run!

Find your way to the studio by outrunning your fans, dodging pesky paparazzi and roving reporters, avoiding the police and clingy teens. Jump over them, float above them, hide in Danny's large hat or use Gordo to bash through obstacles, all to the tunes of The Four Hats latest hit EP, "Hat Tricks"!

Featuring art from author and comic book artist Steve Emond and music from The Four Hats. Get the soundtrack on BandCamp!

Now available on the App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/four-hats/id493969910?mt=8
The Lite version is also available: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/four-hats-lite/id500540103?mt=8 The lite version has content that is not in the full version of the game so it is worth picking up even if you have the full game. If the reception is positive, we will be adding more unique levels to both the lite version and the full version.

Promo Codes: ENW3W3PRP6XH, F6EELXW4YH4K (If you take one please post that you took it, so I know when they are used up.)

Some of the later levels are very challenging and I can post playthroughs if requested. Don't worry, I will wrap them in the spoiler tags.

Thanks for the heads up. I still have a few codes left. First person to post a youtube video of completing 1-2 of the LITE version gets a promo code for the full version.

I really fancied Four Hats, but my iTunes balance is down to a few pence. It really irritates me when developers are generous enough to leave some PC's for genuine gamers, but (most of) those who take them don't even have the decency to post a simple 'thanks'. Or is it just me?

The "thank you" is always appreciated! It also helps us know when they are all taken. Check your Private Messages, I sent an extra PC I had.

P.S. The PC offer still stands to anyone who posts a YouTube video of beating 1-2 of the lite version.
