Speedball 2 HD arrives at full throttle on PC!

PC GamesMastertronic are joining forces with two Godfathers of Britsoft to bring you an all-new version of one of the greatest games of all time, Speedball 2 HD!

How did video games shape your world? If gaming life has a narrative, Speedball 2 plays a huge part in many stories. From original developers The Bitmap Brothers and Jon Hare’s Tower Studios comes a faithful high definition remake of the peerless 90’s classic. Relive those epic Speedball memories with a brutal mix of handball, American Football, and ice hockey, punctuated by super power-ups and tactical switches, all brought together by Appster’s ‘2013 Indie Developer of the Year’, Vivid Games.

Choose your players, lock them in and then get ready for some ruthless action! Manage and upgrade your Speedball team with full player transfer market across four planets and new formations. Featuring 330 players to choose from and six new arenas, your ultimate mission is to assemble your own Speedball team to win the Intergalactic Champions League and bring the greatest prize in galactic sport back to Earth. Points are earned by injuring opponents as well as scoring goals, so let the carnage begin!

“Retro-style PC games are a growing trend. Many of today's game developers, like Vivid Games, grew up in the 8 and 16 bit eras and enjoy using their talents to breathe new life into old classics.

We have all enjoyed working with Mike Montgomery to bring back the magic of the original Speedball franchise with enhanced mechanics and features for the modern gamer” says Jon Hare. ‘Speedball 2 was one of my favourite games on the Amiga, so when Mike offered it to me to work on I couldn’t turn it down. We have done great things with Speedball in recent times at Tower Studios and now we have Speedball 2 HD, the best version of this classic game ever to grace a PC screen”.

“Working on the original The Bitmap Brothers games, it becomes apparent how much of those games are still relevant today. It’s been a fascinating journey translating the original Atari ST game for modern engines but with that said, Speedball 2 HD is as strong and addictive as ever before.” commented Mike Montgomery.
