    Both as a history lesson and as a fun adventure game, Head Over Heels succeeds. While its graphics may look dated, the strength of its gameplay more than makes up for this flaw. Either as part of the Elite Collection or separately, Heads Over Heels is keenly priced for the amount of content involved.

LookOne of the most compelling games I ever played, and I had to play it by loading from tape (5-10 minutes...) and with no chance of saving. Look out for the adaptation to PC/Mac, is pretty easy to find. Nevermind the obsolete graphics, it's one of the best platform-puzzles ever. Expand
