Head over Heels

Can someone positively confirm whether a full price version of Head over Heels exists or not on the Amiga (not any other platform)?
It's been a long while ago, but I think I read something along the lines of Ocean only publishing it on its own budget label, as it is a straight 8 bit port for the fans. I think another game was mentioned as well that I can't recall.

There was no full price version on the Amiga only on the 8-bits.

As I recall the Amiga version was done as a hobby by the original programmers [??] who then presented it to Ocean. It was then released on the Hit Squad label.

Hol, Advanced Search, Budget Publisher, Hit Squad Platinum/Ocean
But it is possible you'll find it only as a non-budget Ocean game listed.

Peanut is selecting Hit Squad from the 'Publisher' drop down list rather than the 'Budget Publisher' drop down list.

The Amiga version was not done as a hobby by the original authors. It was done by Colin Porch who did the C64 version before. He also did the Atari version. They are straight ports of the C64 version (thats why the "changed" rooms from the ZX spectrum are the same as in the C64 version and there is only one kind of the Door, altough other 8bit versions have several).

IFW: I've seen a boxed Head over Heels on Hit Squad for sale in a list of games I diffed against CAPS releases (nothing perl can't do, eh!). I think there are maybe 200-300 not released (some maybe submitted) including some real gems from mid-late 80s, so I shall PM fiath the list.

(Edit) On second thoughts, if it's worth posting the list here...?

No problem, will update it to remove new releases first (!).
