Speedball 2, such a classic game of which I personally don’t think transfers well into current generation systems, it was great back then on the Amiga and Atari ST, but even on an iPhone, it just doesn’t seem right.
It may work very well, I don’t or won’t know due to not owning an iPhone or iPod Touch and therefore, not being able to play it and give a full opinion about it, but I do remember it when it was around originally and it was one of the best games at the time.
“This great game just got a whole lot better,” says Jon Hare, the games creative director and CEO of publisher, Tower Studios. “The Bitmap Brothers classic is now available to a whole new generation of gamers. Retaining its intuitive, quick to learn brutal playability, it’s as fresh and impressive today as ever – and with all-new teams and competitions, plus multiplayer mode and 10 season career mode, this version is also deeper than ever before.”
Some info and features:
The game offers two alternative control systems: a classic, soft joypad, which replicates the controls of the early computer versions, and a new, innovative tilt-to-move option, in which team-mates can be manipulated simply by moving the device, meaning the whole screen can be seen at all times on the iPhone.
With quick-play, league and cup tournaments, players can enjoy a quick game or a more structured competition – but it is the comprehensive career mode, including the new Speedball Champions League, which offers hour upon hour of entertainment which will really grab the attention.
