headcase.gifPatrickHeadcase is the latest platforming fiesta from Nitrome, creator of Hot Air 2 and Skywire. Set in a world of lush pixel art where gravity is fickle and your head is huge, you play a superhero dream-avatar (yes, that's about right) with a big 'up' arrow on your helmet. You stick to walls, ceilings and floors, allowing you to move around platforms as if you were an insect. You also have the ability to jump/fly in a straight line, kind of like Superman.

The controls are about as simple as you can get: Walk back and forth with the [arrow] or [W] and [D] keys, and jump with the [spacebar]. Enemies can also be dispatched using this head-bashing method. Not only can you jump from wall to wall and floor to ceiling, but walking to a corner causes you to change orientation. This works very smoothly and, when topped off with the spacebar gliding, gives the game a very relaxed flow that's hard to match. Kind of like Sonic the Hedgehog on a slow day.

There are 25 levels to work through and the difficulty progresses quite smoothly. Be prepared to get squashed more than few times on your way to the end.

Nitrome fans will recognize many elements of the game's design, from the catchy music to the visual design and even the level select screen. Headcase is another game with artwork by Simon Hunter and programming by Aaron Steed, as was the previously reviewed Nanobots.

Its good to see a game that doesn't try to say too much but simply presents an unusual beauty in the idea that anything is possible.

Nice graphics as always, Nitrome. The semi-transparent backgrounds are very cool (as long as they don't remind you of a certain semi-functional operating system).

How come Nitrome's "off the rails" didn't get reviewed? That game was awesome, and had a ridiculously cool design, from a new control scheme i haven't seen anywhere else and the classic nitrome look.

maybe I'm just a nitrome junkie, but i ook forward to playing this new one until i beat it.

I believe Off the Rails came out right on the heels of another Nitrome release, so we mentioned it during the Link Dump Friday feature at the time to get some feedback on whether it should receive a full review. But not a single comment about it was posted.

I'm loving this game! We've seen the fully-walkable platform square concept before, but this is a really nice spin on it. It's incredibly fun bopping your enemies into oblivion!

Heh, nice game. :)

Plays nicely, a bit linear but I like it that way, too much directional puzzling with this short range of sight would get annoying anyway. Not too difficult, not too easy, good to see some additional goodies around to reward more daring players. And I like the cute pixel style.

One thing about the controls though: I heavily rely on the characters orientation, so pressing the up key when it would move him to the left (from his point of view) is somewhat counter-intuitive. It would make the game more playable if that was configurable.

I agree it would be nice if the game controls were a bit more intelligent. It seems like pressing a left/right key should always move the character, whether or not he's standing on a wall. But on the other hand, so much precision is needed once the levels start getting hard, it would be a shame to walk into some spikes just because you thought your little guy was going to go the other way. The way Nitrome's implemented it, there's never any accidents.

I quite like this one, actually. There always seems to be some control or pacing issue for me with Nitrome, but in this case, there seems to be a balance between the complex way the main character moves around and the limited number of things you can actually tell him to do. Controlling the little guy is almost effortless, so the nice artwork and clever level design get a chance to shine.

This game is the jam, and Nitrome is the jam for making it. I want someone to pay them to make me some DS games already, because Nitrome clearly rocks the mic, old school. If you want to join the cause, go here and dig this game: http://digg.com/playable_web_games/Head_Case_Free_DS_Quality_Flash_Platformer and digg it up.

I like this one a lot. I love how it looks when you try to jump off of the green blocks (blobs?) - so sweet.
I like the Nitrome classic look - but a lot of their games (hot air for example) I just can't get a grasp on. I think it's mostly because I use a touchpad for everything, and that doesn't always work well. But I really like this one a lot. A whole lot.

This is definitely one of Nitrome's better games. I haven't been to impressed with some of their recent games, but Off the Rails and Headcase are really top notch.

Oh yeah, does anyone know how to do level 9? I'm stumped...

Great game!! Just wondering...
If you keep an key down, say, to go right, if you keep it down, you will carry on travelling in the specified direction- up walls, down walls.... everywhere, until you die.
If you stop pressing the key, the guy stops, and you have to use the proper key again.

Does anyone else think Mat Annal and Heather Stancliffe are busy working on the sequel? 'Cos they used to do everything, until Simon Hunter and Aaron Steed came along.
Maybe they're taking a break?

Ah! I feel like Nitrome has redeemed themselves. I haven't enjoyed most of their recent games. Off The Rails was an incredibly cool looking game, but frankly I felt not that fun to play. The visuals in this game are a bit saturated for my taste, but the gameplay ROCKS! You can tell they spent a lot of time on it. It'd be hard to get the controls for this right, but they did it perfectly. The levels are well designed. Everything is great! 5 stars!

No, I don't think I'll figure this one out without help-

Level 15??? The little guy seems to jet out & land in this enclosed rectangle. NO way out. Except there is a button- probably it opens the block in front of the pipe where he came in at. But how do you push the button, and then get over there to that block in time before it closes? Because I've never been able to get over there in time to even see it has moved. I'm stumped.

Caya-

The button you mention opens a different blue block- if you press the button, then jump away/opposite from it, you go into this pipe and the level goes on from there :)

@Caya/lvl 15:

Hitting space the moment you land (jumping back the way you came in) at the very beginning of the level also makes things a lot easier.

This was THE most frustrating game I've ever played!!!!
And, what's worse:

it's inferred there may be a part II (bangs head repeatedly against wall)!


Why do I think this, you may ask?

I couldn't agree more, Enchantress. The frustration is mainly due to the repetitiveness of the gameplay paired with split-second timing, I think. Expect nothing new beyond level 10 or so... after that, playing becomes a chore. Why I kept playing until level 24 (and I hope to complete the last level tonight) is beyond me, but it's probably the satisfaction I receive from bashing those smug-faced, donkey-eared dimwits from their bicycles. (Oh, how I'd love to have a row of about thirty or forty of them in front of me and firm ground under my feet to jump off from).

Really Groogokk? I thought those "smug-faced, donkey-eared dimwits on bicycles" (lol) were kinda adorable. Personally, I found those little racoon masked, green lepidopterous harrier's to be my greatest annoyance! I'm not normally prone to violence, however; I have to admit, a little part of me giggled inside, every time I had opportunity to de-wing and ground those nasty, vicious antagonists! Rest In Pieces, little flutter-by's! ;)

I hate level 23. especially getting past the spike guys. Once you enter theres only one way out no way back out as in returning.
I hate the part where there are so many blue cute blockys , I get squashed between them. I still haven't beaten it yet.

Thanks for the offer! I did manage to complete it last night. And yes, grounding the flutterers felt nice for me, too. ;-)

At least there was an endscreen this time around, so I'm not complaining. There are two or three nitrome games that just say "Well done!" and that's it after two dozen fit-inducing levels.

PS:

Lepidopterous... the word has positive aesthetic qualities. If you can off-handedly throw words like those into a conversation, you deserve my admiration! ;-)

Level 24 Walkthrough (from beginning to end):

*Note - by holding DOWN ARROW right at the start of this level - Norman will walk UP to top of left START Wall - Across Top, Down left side of wall - Down under - UP Right, etc. (basically a complete loop-you'll have to backtrack all the way back though to starting position....) - he finds 2 x health bonus gems - but of course, as you're just beginning, you don't really have opportunity for injury yet, so it's up to you, if you wish to first explore...but to get through this level, you have to begin from spiky blue block - see walkthrough, below)

Up, Right, Down (over Jelly rectangle) to just above spiky blue block on right.
Quick-as-a-bunny: (when spikes are down on blue block) Down, Right, Spacebar, UP-from right side of blue block you just landed on, to top - Spacebar-Right-Spacebar-Down - landing on Pink Checkered Block

Down Right side (avoid bullet) to bottom
From Upsidedown on pink checkered block, SPACEBAR, Right Arrow SPACEBAR to left side of Blue Spiky Block - Up (or down, your preference, just be quick to avoid spikes) over or under to right side of blue block, than - SPACEBAR to FAR RIGHT SIDE WALL.

UP to Pink Checkered Block (Health Bonus will be encounterd as you move upwards) - from left side of block - SPACEBAR to moving green jelly block on left (try to nail the 'flutterby' in the process!)
Once on right-side of moving block, time it so the moving block aligns with 'ceiling'/underside of pink checkered block above and to the right, than walk on to the right side, than DOWN (Norman will now be upside down).

SPACEBAR (if you missed the flutterby flying left, you'll nail him now, flying south! giggle-giggle!)
You've just picked up 7 gems and landed on another jelly block - this time, it's a long rectangle one.
To your left is another spikey blue block - when the spikes are down, walk over him. (Just hold LEFT arrow to walk-onto right side of block) (up-to top of block) down-back onto 'jelly floor'.) Avoid Bullet from above, repeat with other Blue Block on left/edge - when you get to left side: SPACEBAR into Tube Tunnel.

Norman shoot's out and land on 'an island' with 3 Jelly blocks and 1 Pink checkered block - UP to top and DOWN left side of 'island' to Pink Checkered block - NOTE: You're about to embark on the path of Another series of blue spikey blocks - do this as quickly as possible!
SPACEBAR (left direction onto blue spikey block)
DOWN - SPACEBAR
RIGHT - SPACEBAR
DOWN - SPACEBAR
You land on a blue spikey block platform - pause for a split second to wait for the spikes to pop up - they pop up in right-to-left sequence, beginning with block to your immediate left; timing is everything (as you well know by now!) - hold LEFT arrow and walk to left side of 3rd blue spikey block on left - SPACEBAR
DOWN - SPACEBAR
RIGHT - SPACEBAR
DOWN - SPACEBAR
You FINALLY land on top of a pink checkered block! DOWN to left side of that block - SPACEBAR into tube/tunnel
Oh the joy of smashing through pink blocks and stepping on blue buttons!
You should be able to take it from here, but, we've come this far therefore; we shall tarry on :)

The tube sent Norman crashing through a breakable pink block - you've landed on a blue button, embedded in the left side of a jelly block.
Look above you, and you'll notice 2 blue sliding blocks.
Walk DOWN as they're parting aside to offer you a path...SPACEBAR Up!

LEFT to set up to crash through the Pink breakable block on the right - beware of the spiky blue block just on the other side!
Land on left side of spikey block, than quickly UP - now you can SPACEBAR down and take out the masked bastard!
Take out that flutterby and from right side of pink block SPACEBAR to checkered wall. UP to bottom of blue spikey block/onto button - SPACEBAR down - quickly move to right side of sliding blue block (LEFT arrow) - SPACEBAR through Pink Smashable block to land on
another 'island': 3 x Green Gel Blocks + 1 x Pink Checkered Block + 1 x Blue Wrecking Ball on a sparkly gold chain.

UP to other side/right side of pink checkered block (time it so that when you begin, ball is aligned with top green block.)
SPACEBAR right onto left side of another 'isand'-(Same layout as the one you just escaped from, less one green block).
When ball is down, move UP and over, down to right side of pink checkered block.

SPACEBAR to blue spikey block - land on left side, DOWN and quickly to RIGHT SIDE - SPACEBAR and . . .

You're Done!

You made it!

Congrat'z!!! . . . and 'all the best of luck' with LEVEL 25! :)

great level 24 walkthrough, as that's what i was looking for when i came here. while i didn't think i'd make it this far, the walkthrough has essentially convinced me to totally give up. though it is a great lesson in try try again. something about the pacing, maybe my own fluttering internet speed (hello broadband), means it's very tough to time this level. 23 out of 25 is not bad, though. here's wishing there were level flags so you could start partway through a level. what's the fun in doing the same parts over and over?

Okay, I just tried the level again just now. I thought it would take me another two dozen tries to complete it but it didn't, so, with my memory refreshed, let me walk you through:

The first time the level loads, you have to jump off the blue spikey block because the spikes will come out a lot quicker than in later loads, so I never try to complete the level with that load.
Instead, load the level again, and run up immediately so you're facing upwards, then press space and knock that bicycle rider off the screen. This may be difficult to do (took my 5 tries just now and about 20 last week), but it gets that guy out of the way. (alternatively, you can jump off to the right, wait a while and come back when the bike rider is in a better shooting position for you).

Now wait for that ball-on-a-chain to swing away from you, run right and jump into the tube, knocking out the sleepy cannon guy sitting on the entrance.

You should now stand on a green jelly block below three cannon guys shooting down. You will need to run left or right and then down, onto a moving block. Time it so that you can run in front of a flying bullet, onto that block, and around the bottom corner so that bullet doesn't hit you. Stand on the blue area of the moving block, and jump down.

You'll fly through a pink breakable block into a cave with a number of green flyers, knocking out some (hopefully most) of them in the process. Now make your way back up to the top of that cave on the right side. Stand on the blue spikey block when the spikes are retracted, then jump off to the left, through a pink block.

Walk up the wall on the left to the next spikey block. Jump off so that you don't land on the underside of the moving block, which may get you caught between the block and some spikes. You should go through a bent tube and land on a small green jelly block. Go left, up, right, step on the trigger and then stand on the retracting block, and jump off in the right moment to knock that electricity guy off the screen.

Again, you land on a jelly block. Walk around it, onto the trigger and right on onto the retracting block. Try to get on top of that block so you stand upright, then jump off upwards, knocking out one of the flyers. I lose a health point here now and then.

Now you're on a jelly block. Move left and up, then continue just in time to pass through under that moving blue block and onto the trigger; walk right back up that moving block and jump off quickly, but not too low. You should fly right, through a retracting block and into a cave with lots of diamonds. Collect those (or don't), then go back to the retracting block. Step onto the trigger, then jump to the other side, walk onto the spikey block until you're facing left, and jump to the chequered block that has some spikes on its left side. Jump up.

You land on a big chequered block. Walk right and up, until you see tubes leading left and right. Jump off so you fly into the right one (the tube that leads left only means trouble). You should land at the entrance of a green jelly cave with spikes left and right. Walk into the entrance, step on the trigger and go in. Walk down past the big fat blue moving blocks until you stand above some breakable pink blocks. Walk back onto the underside of the lowest blue moving block, then jump off in time to fly down through the breakable blocks.

And that's it! You made it!

Go back for more loot if you want, there is some strewn on roads not taken in this walkthrough.

I hope all this helps! Let me know.

Who needs a cheat for level 19? SO...

Here is one! More to come!

On level 19, walk around to the left on the green block. Launch yourself off the pink square and keep walking, upside-down, to the left. Norman (the headcase guy) will no longer be in view, but there are NO ENEMIES so it is okay. keep walking until you come to the Coin Cavern. Collect coins if you are into that kind of thing, and if you need the health boost (though I don't see why you would need one) collect it. Then go through the pipe. You will have avoided 6 enimies and collected many coins.

Glitch on Off the Rails:

On level 9, if you press W or Up at the jump at the end, you'll be upside-down on the tracks, but you'll still be alive! (this only works when you're at the Finish flag.

Chu:

To pass Level 15;

You have to keep jumping when the time is right. Sorry, this is all the info for Level 15 I have. Despite me writing this, I used to have alot of frustration there. But, if this doesn't help, keep trying, you'll finish it soon.

@Maria:

I'm not sure where you are in the level, but:

You can walk on or jump from the blue blocks when the spikes aren't extended, you just have to be quick as a bunny. Be ready to move as soon as you land!

Also:

Realize that you may not want to break ALL of those pink blocks. You may need some of them to reach that blue button. Launch from the button to get to the next section.

And finally:

Run and jump as quick as you can to get through the blue blocks and the electrical fields! You CAN walk around three sides of the blue block, if you time it right. Smash the green guys!
