A group of students enrolled in the entertainment arts and engineering program at the University of Utah released Heroes of Hat, a multiplayer platformer for the Xbox Live Indie Games service.

Similar in premise to Nintendo's New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Heroes of Hat allows up to four players to team up and tackle the game's many side-scrolling levels. Players can collect hats that grant new abilities and power-ups, and if it's anything like its inspiration, there should be plenty of opportunities to screw over your friends at will. Note: don't play this if your teammates are jerks.

Heroes of Hat is priced at 80 Microsoft points ($1).
