Hard Head is a 2D side-scrolling platform game that puts players in the shoes of a 'Hard Head' - it's similar to Super Mario Bros.
As you traverse the sixteen stages, you have to navigate through an obstacle course.
You have the ability destroy blocks with your head that sometimes contain power-ups and sometimes walls have to be destroyed with a hammer.
The various stages are filled with strange enemies like Indians, ducks, scissors, insects, cat like creatures and monsters. You fight these creatures with your bubble gun that forms a bubble a round them and lifts them up.
The bubble will break after a while, and jumping them on the head will kill them permanently. A stage can be completed if you kick a soccer ball in a goal at the end of each stage. You can play solo or with a friend.
