Description

Marble Madness meets pinball. Ball rolling game with a simple goal: Move the ball to hit moving targets within time limit to win the level. On the higher levels feature hazards and bonus items, and you can score some big points if you hit them in the right sequence. Most targets are cutesy-looking aliens, and a big yellow arrow shows which one you must bounce at next.

Screenshots

Helter Skelter ZX Spectrum Start of level 2. Tricky one because the natural bounce of the ball isn't enough to reach the shelves from the floor. At least it starts directly over the target which makes the first kill easy
Helter Skelter ZX Spectrum The start of level 1. The monster to be hit has a big arrow over its head. All that's required is to roll the ball off  the shelf and squash it...
Helter Skelter ZX Spectrum Last life. All the monsters on the lower level have been hit out of sequence and have multiplied. Once the monster on the shelf been hit the ball can roll around on the floor until the level's cleared
