Head Over Heels is a craftily difficult game from the old Spectrum/C64 days. I can safely say I'm better now than I was back in 1985 or so, which isn't saying much. Jumps are insanely difficult to time correctly, you'll spend many lives just learning to jump across a simple obstacle.
However, this is a marvelous remake of a genuine classic, with graphics that have been particularly well upgraded.
eMTe : Came back to this one after a while (my usual manner, I never finish games in first try and rarely have patience to play over and over if I am stuck ).
32% is my current best and I am a bit lost, since in further stages game is non-linear.
eMTe : Browsing various remakes sites recently I started to think why do I like this game so much (I havent played original). It resembled me some classic from the past, but I couldnt figure which. Now I know - one of my favourite Amiga titles - Heimdall 2. Almost identical graphic style (of course colour pallette and resolution are different).
Wanted to share this news with others. ^^ And bump this thread. Actually 95% of threads here need bumping. Or any discussion.
Chroelle : I just wanted to add that I finally got around to downloading the game. Downloadspage should be ready later today...
Chroelle : Great. I will start to make more sites on the download-section soon. I just need to be finished with some more forum-features first.
But please people keep looking. So far we have around 200 MB's left to deal with. I still need to figure out just how we can finance this site...
eMTe : Ekhm... Why emailing Retrospec if you have the license in the manual...?
This game is licensed as freeware. This means you can give copies of it to your
friends or put it on web sites in its original, unaltered state - as it was
downloaded from the Retrospec website. You are not allowed to charge any kind
of money for downloading...blah blah blah...
I think in such cases there's no need for any additional actions...
Have just emailed Retrospec... Are waiting for an answer...
Chroelle : Actually we are working on a reviewsystem, but this will take some time to implement, so we will propably just do it, by you PM'ing me the review, and then I will add it on the downloadspage. But first of all it needs to be on the download page. Can we put it up?
Heimnar : Where can I write a review of this game???
I have one of mine from OG.
The game is marvellous. In my oppinion much better than the original. Although - a bit easier.
eMTe : Downloaded and checked it. A very nice game with excellent graphics, however isometric view can be mistaking at times. Also getting used to controls takes some time. But gameplay is ok and spooky atmosphere adds up to the overall pleasure...
Hah! Ive just written my first review on site! Id give myself, let's say, 3 points of 25...
Dizi : Lol thats quite funny, a friend of mine just gave me a copy of this
