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.


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 After the 'Game Over' message the Hi-Score screen may be displayed, after which the player is returned to the main game menu
Helter Skelter ZX Spectrum The lightning flash will zap all remaining monsters on screen, but getting to it is not that easy
Helter Skelter ZX Spectrum Collecting the letter 'E' lights up the letter 'E' in the word 'EXTRA' at the top of the screen. The bonus is won when all letters are lit.
