Classic futuristic sports game boasting intuitive, hard-hitting gameplay, super-slick visuals, innovative controls and brutal competition in both single and multiplayer modes.
The Bitmap Brothers’ classic game, with an existing fan base of millions, has been remade for the iPhone generation by Tower Studios, Vivid Games & The Bitmap Brothers
The game offers two control systems: a classic, soft joypad and an innovative, intuitive tilt-to-move variant meaning the whole screen can be seen at all times on the iPhone. Simple one-button controls mask a game of enormous depth and strategy both on the pitch and in the locker room as teams use any tactic necessary to beat the opposing team. Other enhancements include brand new visuals designed specifically to showcase the iOS devices and local multiplayer competitions across Bluetooth and Wi-Fi,
The game includes Quick Matches, Leagues, Cups, Tournaments and a comprehensive Career Mode offering a full upgradable player transfer market and the new Speedball Champions League.
This is the best version of Speedball 2 since the original and no other remake of any classic title available on the App Store is in the same league as Speedball 2 Evolution. A combination of fast-based cartoon violence, tongue-in-cheek humour, and perfect playability make this the ideal handheld sports title for veteran Speedball players or newcomers to this most competitive of sports.
Press quotes:
“The future sport title – think handball with added violence – was one of the very best Amiga games, especially on multiplayer.” – The Guardian
“A dream-come-true for a sizable swath of oldschool iOS gamers...” – TouchArcade

Holy crap...wasn't expecting this today. Looks like getting up at 6 a.m. Beirut time on Thursdays has become the norm.
