Getting Ahead

You play as Queen Amelia, who previously ruled over the kingdom. However recently it’s been taken over by the evil Queen Emily. Emily had Amelia decapitated and her headless body was thrown into a rubbish tip on the outskirts of the kingdom. Luckily for Amelia a powerful wizard, who lives amongst the rubbish, was able to bring her headless body back to life. He gifts you a new head (that head being a mouldy loaf of bread he forgot to eat in time), and sends you on a quest to retrieve your real head, and reclaim your kingdom. (Which is currently in possession of Queen Emily) In the game you can use multiple items as stand in heads and each ‘head’ affords different powers to kill enemies with. Given that you’ve got some unusual heads people in the kingdom are attacking you, unsurprisingly. If you take too much damage to your head you become headless again and need to find a new head quick. The aim of the game is to find your real head, and store yourself to glory.
