Hat Trick bases its name off of the sports feat of scoring three goals in one game. In the case of this game it's all about Hockey. This is an old style top down arcade game from the 80's. The graphics and gameplay aren't that special but they do a good job toward making the game enjoyable. If you are a hockey fan or a fan of classic sports games this one is worth a look.
