In Fat Princess, the player is asked to join one of two opposite teams which consist up to 16 cartoon characters each, with the goal of rescuing their team’s princess from the other team’s castle. To achieve their goal faster, the player may change their character classes and abilities on the fly by picking up hats that are generated at their team’s base. Hats also can be found on the battlefield where enemies had fallen. The game has six classes include the villager, mage, priest, worker, warrior, and ranger. Titan Studios has added four additional classes too which are the ninja, the chef, the pirate and the king. All these classes have its own unique set of weapons and abilities. The “hat machines” can be upgraded to produce hats that will enhance the strength and effectiveness of their respective classes.

These resources means the wood and metal that are gathered by worker class characters by chopping down trees or mining metal and bringing them back to the castle or a team’s captured outpost. Other than that, in addition to the game’s primary mode, there’s a team deathmatch mode also available than the two single-player mode.
“Princesses have been known to fear peas and kiss toads, but little has been written about their insatiable love for fine pastries. In Fat Princess, the young heiress’ vice is the moist center and gooey frosting of a well-made cake, and she will feast on this decadent dessert until she becomes a bloated ball of royalty. In this oddball take on the classic capture-the-flag formula, two teams try valiantly to rescue their princess from the other team’s castle while cramming delectable delights down the gaping maw of the queen-in-waiting. The unpredictable and inherently goofy battles do a fine job of mixing humor with strategy, creating an often hilarious experience as you strive to become the shining knight for an overweight damsel in distress. There are a few blotches in this fairy tale landscape, though. Network problems and mindless AI limit the goofy fun, and matches sometimes linger in a stalemate, but the silly joy of turning warriors into feathered chickens and flinging royal ladies in a rickety catapult make this a chaotic and entertaining online competition.” (Gamespot, 2009)
