A violent Rollerball-like future sport
I remember this game! A violent Rollerball-like future sport (I hope you've seen the original Rollerball movie...). Many ways to score and multiply points (to knock down a player of the opponent team counts as a goal). A lot of fun leading Brutal Deluxe from division 2 to try to win the division 1 championship, with the possibility to increase players stats and buy new champions on the market. Brutal Deluxe for ever!
What H.O.T.U. used to say about it:
The Bitmap Brothers affirmed their status as leading action game developer with Speedball
1 and 2, two highly enjoyable futuristic ball games that combine elements of handball and rugby. The simple goal of getting the ball past the goalkeeper is complicated by many "tokens" that allow you to give extra skill to the squad, bribe referee, turn the ball into a weapon, etc. Speedball 2 greatly expands on the concept with bigger pitches, more complex league play, and more. You are scored for injuring your opponents as well as goals, so... let the carnage begin ;)
