Unfinished game (although listed on the Crash covertape as finished), with the 1st level looped.

This game is an original concept by Christian F. Urquhart (Cybadyne) for the Spectrum, and it was planned to be released on Hewson's 4th Dimension compilation in 1990, but it was never finished. Hewson replaced it with Rollaround (Mastertronic, 1988) at the last moment, when the box layout was already done, thus "Head the Ball" can be seen on the back cover with images from the Spectrum version. In the C64 version developed by Jason Page (Graftgold), the alias of Urquhart is clearly displayed as "Original Spectrum Version by Cybadyne".
