In early issues of Zzap 64, Ocean had Atari 800 listed along with C64/CPC/ZX Spectrum for games like:Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Daleys Supertest.Ads must have been done when Ocean were at planning stages of producing said games with A8 versions under consideration.

I would LOVE to know why Ocean did not release this at the time it was ported? Colin Porch also wrote the C64 and 16-Bit versions.

When you think how prolific Ocean/Imagine was in the 8-Bit era, for us to only get Green Beret and Arkanoid from Imagine, and NO releases from Ocean, it's a crying shame.

If they had taken a punt on it, and it did well, who knows what other titles they might have released...

Despite the monochrome graphics, this isometric graphic adventure was still one of the best overall games I've played on the 8-bit. The two different characters you played (Head and Heels) and their differing capabilities added an extra level of variety to the challenge. BTW - there's an authentic remake for modern platforms out there somewhere.

Head Over Heels on the Speccy is largely hailed as the best isometric 3D action/adventure game ever. It's a shame that the XL port was rather barebone and definitely not taking advantage of the machine in the graphic or sound departments. Yet it has a charm of its own and the original gameplay remains intact. It could have been a better conversion, but it's still an excellent game as it is.
