Head over Heels PC-remake

Oh boy, this we've been all waiting for, haven't we! :)

Head over Heels was and is a great, great, great isometric adventure/puzzle game from the 8-bit era of home computing. Now it's also available for PC/Windows sytems! And not just through emulator software; this is a stand-alone version with updated graphics -- and (still) looks absolutely cute!

To download the new version, visit: http://retrospec.sgn.net/games/hoh/ (do read the short manual for gameplay information, you're going need it, trust me)

For info on earlier 8-bit/16-bit versions, check: http://usuarios.lycos.es/hoh2/uk/original_game.htm (this is part of a website dedicated to a sequel)

I remember playing the MSX version 15 years or so ago -- and, wow, the nostalgia rush I got from visiting the market and the enigmatic "sofa-cushion passage" room for the first time in over a decade! :D

So, at the moment I've finished 24% of the game. The possibility to save game truly rocks!
G: it's a problem, when everybody is spitting in the same spittoon (I mean cuspidor). are you following my drift?
D: barely, but let's pretend that I am
