Game Review

Head Over Heels is an isometric action platformer game created by Jon Ritman and Bernie Drummond and published by Ocean Software. Originally released on Commodore 64 and other 8 bit platforms in 1987, it was released for the Amiga and Atari ST in 1989.

In this bizarre adventure game you take control of a set of oddball aliens dubbed Head and Heels. Independently the two have their own special abilities that put them above the other. Like Head can jump higher than Heels, but Heels can run faster than Head, and so on. The two can also come together to form one entity in order to surpass certain obstacles. The game offers bizarre enemies, fun gameplay and lots of rooms with puzzles to solve.

Head Over Heels was one of the best games on the Commodore 64, with ratings always above 90% from all the most important magazines. It has also seen several remakes and ports since its initial release, including for Windows, Mac and iOS. GamesNostalgia offers you the Amiga version.
