    Overlooked and underrated.

    Definitely one of the most overlooked and underrated Genesis games ever, this was Treasure's third release for the Genesis. Gameplay: Where to start? This game is like one long head trip from start to finish. Here'... Read Full Review

    A fun,colorful and wacky Japanese platformer but it's difficulty is too hard.

    Dynamite Headdy is easily one of the best looking platformer games on the SEGA MEGA DRIVE.It's levels use an artstyle that reminds me of the 16-Bit Sonic games but the levels have weird and funny things happening in ... Read Full Review

    Explore puppet land in an interesting world with a balance issue.

    Throughout this adventure I am treated with numerous amusing film references such as "Clothes Encounters" (Close Encounters) relentless developer self promotion and wierd and wacky stage props. This is one of the goofies... Read Full Review

    A horrid game indeed.

    This is a truly garish platformer. You play the title character, who can detach he head and chuck it at people. That's how you kill the bad guys. He's not the best character ever and you won't have fun playing him. Th... Read Full Review

    Pure platform entertainment.

    The curtains are raised and Headdy gets ready. He is the star of the show and the audience is waiting. However things aren't nearly as calm as they seem, the puppet world is under threat from the monstrous tyrant Dark De... Read Full Review

    Beautiful, Zany, and Fun game! Who cares if know one knows it? Don't worry about the steep difficulty. You can cheat.

    I recently bought this game for 8 bucks from the Wii shop channel. I didn't think the game looked good from Gamespot's screen shots, but once I started playing the game I realized how wrong I was. The game's visuals are ... Read Full Review

    Just about one of the best games I have ever played

    This is the best game that you could buy on the Virtual Console. It is better than super Mario bros. The gameplay is perfect. The game is quite difficult in about the 7th level, and if you have game over you start back ... Read Full Review

    Friggin' Bizzare. Friggin' Hard. Friggin' Great.

    So, this game is one of the most wonderfully bizarre games I've ever played. I'm going to go through it fairly quickly....so try to keep up. Here it goes. You live in a puppet show world. You are a puppet. You are ... Read Full Review
