Free old-school top-down PvP shooting game

Hats and Hand Grenades is a free retro-themed 2D shooting platform that pits up to six players against one another in a bullet hell environment. This platform offers split-screen competitions as well as online co-op gameplay.

The layout of Hats and Hand Grenades offers a top-down perspective. It features retro-themed graphics that harken back to games associated with the golden days of PvP platforms, such as Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne.

Twin-stick shooting controls

Players will employ a unique "twin stick" method when aiming and shooting their weapons. Two lines will merge together, signaling where the projectiles are predicted to land. This adds an additional layer of challenge to each competition.

Online mayhem

Hats and Hand Grenades supports up to six players at the same time via an online co-op platform. Users can either choose to form alliances or battle against one another instead in order to determine the ultimate victor.

Retro-themed open worlds

The layout of the levels themselves is rather simple. Each consists of a series of paths as well as obstacles that can be used for protection. The associated graphics tend to mimic those commonly associated with NES and even DOS platforms of the 1980s and the 1990s.

Great for shoot 'em up fans

Hats and Hand Grenades provides straightforward PvP action similar to other games, such as Alien Shooter 2. While this bundle is primarily intended to be used in multiplayer mode, settings can also be adjusted to support single-player mode. In this instance, users will participate in PvE competitions against bots.
