Completed, including the bonus scene, with the Japanese translation hack.

There's a lot to like about Dynamite Headdy (save for some scattershot difficulty, even in the Japanese version), but I feel like I enjoyed it more for its charm and system-pushing visuals than any particularly entertaining platforming. It's got a lot of fun ideas, but rarely sticks with any long enough to get any real mileage out of them, which would be a little easier to swallow if this was a breezy 45, 50 minute game instead of almost double that.

A vibrant platformer with solid controls with the head gimmick. Coupled with a nice variety of levels, decent music and art design made for a competent game that could hold its own in the genre.
