A downloadable game for Windows and Android

Stophat is a charming arcade game about a rich man, his disobedient top hat and a falling golden lift.

Originally made in under 48 hours for the 14th gm(48) competition, Stophat is an imaginative take on the theme "top-down". There's some groovy bossa nova beats and Atari-style sound effects, dramatic lift-plummeting action, and a play time of a whole 10 minutes.

"Why is he in a solid gold lift? Gold is heavy as hell, of course the lift is broken!" - Sir Julian Adams

Saw this on Steam, and will check it out on Android as well. You really did take an imaginative take on the whole "top down" theme :D!

I would also like to see the game submitted into the Game Development World Championship contest!

There was a free windows download here aswell, but it didn't seem fair for steam users so I just left it free for android, I'll definitely check out the GDWC
