“Head over Heels is quite brilliant”


“Head over Heels has an addictiveness and a compulsive quality never found in any other game”


“A great game from head to toe”



Commodore Amiga 500

The Amiga and Atari versions of the game were released two years later than the Z80 versions (1989). They were developed from the Commodore 64 program, and the programmer was the same: Colin Porch. Although these machines had more RAM memory than any of the 8-bit computers, their versions didn't included the extra graphics that were in the Amstrad CPC version. Why? Our speculation is that the C64 version didn't included those graphics. However, the graphic features of the versions for these 16-bit computers were improved. As you can see, the results are excellent.

It's curious that all the graphics versions have exactly the same size. Spectrum resolution was good (256 x 192 pixels), and it was very similar to other machines resolution modes (including Amiga and Atari). For example, Head's sprites have a 24 x 24 pixels size in all platforms (except our PC version). The only difference is the number of colors that were employed.
