Head over Heels Who doesn't know Head over Heels? This
game has been remade for PC's, it is available on the net, for free.
It's an isometric 3D game, in the same mould as Knight Lore. You play
either Head or Heels, you can swap between the two at any point in
Head and Heels have slightly
different capabilities, the one can jump further while the other on is
faster. Extra lives can be collected , Head can shoot doughnuts
and when the two meet they can combine into one
being. You have to liberate five planets by collecting five
crowns, or you can just try and escape.
This is a great game, loads of playability, loads of
lastability, one of the great 8-bit games. Unfortunately I couldn't get
a Commodore version that worked properly in the emulator, therefore the
lack of screenshots.
Both games move at the same
rate, the graphics seem to be the same with some cosmetic differences.
Head over Heels shows that the Commodore could do these isometric games
when programmed properly, the Commodore has better sound but
