Platform Racing 3
An early sketch of the Top Hat was first added in Platform Racing 3 shortly after the open beta release, although it wouldn't receive its final, more realistic design until several months later, one of the last hats to do so.
Wearing the hat allows users to pass through crumble and vanish blocks.
The Top Hat was made available as a random prize in the Level of the Day in the game's final update on 2011-09-20 along side several others.
Platform Racing 2
Announced on 2011-04-16, the Top Hat was the first and only hat introduced in Platform Racing 3 to be brought over to Platform Racing 2. It retains relatively the same design as its predecessor, although the ribbon is slightly raised and given less of a tilt.
Players who hold the hat can freely walk through the sides of vanish blocks and hold up while standing in a line of them to quickly shoot themselves upwards.
The Top Hat is the prize of the non-campaign level, "The Golden Compass" by -Shadowfax-, also known as "The Guardian of the Top Hat" by Jiggmin, which was selected from a contest that lasted multiple months. Originally the hat was given out to users by hand from Jiggmin if he read their email or liked their level he played during one of his livestreams until he announced the aformentioned contest. Prior to that, Jiggmin originally planned for accounts that were two years or older to automatically receive the hat, although this was scrapped once he learned that the database storing join dates was broken.
