# This was an fucking excellent game
and I now want to put my Amiga back together so I can play it again :D

I tried Minter's XBLA offering, wasn't impressed.

This is very wonderful (and free):

It's the most faithful remake I've ever seen. Plus it's so much easier to see where Head is flying over when he has a shadow under him :)

# Aha!
I've actually played that version and it is indeed exceptional - it's the only time I managed to complete it too :) I upgraded PCs a while back and it doesn't seem to be compatible with this one though :(
