Head Over Heels

Head Over Heels is one of the classic Spectrum games of all time. Packed full of playability and cute graphics it couldn't fail. The game is all about two characters called (wait for it) Head and Heels. They've been imprisoned in the castle headquarters of pie-let Blacktooth. It's your job to get them out! The two characters have their own powers which help you in your task. Heels has no arms but strong legs which allow him to jump really high and Head is more of a carrying person and usually goes around sitting on his partner's shoulders.

Around the action packed 3D screens of the castle great surprises are in store. Objects can be collected to help: for example a fluffy bunny magically increases your powers and finding a hooter will allow you to fire doughnuts at the attacking monsters (providing you've located the doughnuts!).

In addition to impressive graphics Head Over Heels features an equally brilliant sound track. At the start you can choose to have sound effects, music or silence as you play, and having both effects and music releases a cascade of sound from your Spectrum!

Head Over Heels is one of the best 3D adventure games you can possibly get on your computer. You'll be totally addicted from the word go. Come on, have some fun!
