Play OverviewPlay Overview

Headland (2020) is an action adventure game in a vibrant fantasy world. You help Nor and his robot friends find the imagination fragments and save the world.

Play involves exploring the levels, fighting enemies and collecting resources. You work through different settings each with unique enemies and puzzles. Each location offers an imaginative cast of monsters and the chance to level up your powers.

As you progress you collect blueprints to expand your arsenal of unique weapons. You can then spend resources to upgrade your weapons in the hub world. This enables you to slowly unlock new arenas to explore from lush meadows to deep caves and dark castles. Along the way you make friends with the people you meet and confront your fears in a little adventure about a big imagination.

Unusually, Headland was a Zelda-like adventure designed for smartphones. On Switch and PC it has new controls and more content to make it more engaging.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Headland 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Ben Kendall and updated 2 years ago.
