Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Head over Heels'

Rating:4 User: Juan F. Ramirez

When We thought that in 1987 all the good isometric adventures had already come out and no new other will reach their quality, Jon Ritman and Bernie Drummond pulled this game out of their hat.

Knight Lore, Alien 8, Fairlight, Movie, Batman, ... and now this funny game with an original touch: You can control either Head or Heels separately or Both. Each one has his own abilities: Head can fly high and Heels can jump his own height.

Both are symbiotic partners, two spies with a dangerous mission: escape from the Blacktooh prison where they are imprisoned and help the planets taken over by the evil Blacktooth empire reach freedom.

As usual, there are some objects that will help you in your adventure.

A good game with excellent graphics, movements, sounds & tune and all the ingredients that makes Head Over Heels one of the Spectrum classics.

And if that's not enough, a great loading screen by F. David Thorpe and an amazing artwork by Bob Wakelin.
