A Hat in Time Wiki
Mafia "Mafia look at little child. Mafia see loser."

Ship Shape is the second act of the DLC chapter Arctic Cruise. In it, Hat Kid must perform a series of tasks. The more time it takes her to complete the tasks, the angrier Walrus Captain will get. If he gets too angry, she will have to start over. A meter will appear on the bottom right side of the screen to indicate Walrus Captain's mood. Once she completes all the tasks, Walrus Captain will reward Hat Kid with a Time Piece from the Lost and Found Box.

In current versions of the game, it is only necessary to complete 18 tasks (with that amount being doubled for co-op play), but in earlier versions, it was necessary to finish 20 tasks in order to progress. This was likely dropped for difficulty reasons.

Diary Entry[]

After each mission Hat Kid will write about it in her diary, which can be found in her room under the swimming pool of pillows. The diary will only read the entry for the last act that was completed.

"There's tooootally more Time Pieces on this boat! Nobody even wants 'em!"

"That moody old Captain made me clean up (ughh!!!) his ship, but joke's on him! At least no one's getting murdered or blown up here."


  • The title card for this act is one of the only ones to feature Hat Kid in a hat that is not the Kid's Hat or one of its costumes, the others being Nyakuza Metro and Rush Hour.
    • Since the Nyakuza Metro acts both use the Nyakuza mask flair for the Brewing Hat, this act's title card is also the only one of the three to feature the Sprint Hat.
