Speedball 2 Evolution in App Store now

If you’re a fan of violent futuristic sports games based on Amiga classics brought to Apple devices, or think you could possibly be interested in such things, today is your lucky day.

Speedball 2 Evolution is now available on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. It is the latest in the Speedball series that first landed on the Amiga in 1988, offering an updated, portable version that aims to retain all the hallmarks of the original but with fresh, new content bolted on.

“This great game just got a whole lot better,” says Jon Hare, the games creative director and CEO of Tower Studios. “The Bitmap Brothers classic is now available to a whole new generation of gamers. Retaining its intuitive, quick to learn brutal playability, the gameplay is as fresh and impressive today as ever. With all-new teams and competitions, plus multiplayer mode and a 10-season career mode, Speedball 2 is also deeper than ever before.”

There are two control methods on offer: the first being a joypad that replicates the original controls for all of the sport hardened veterans out there, and a new ‘tilt-the-device’ style of control that plays to the technology in your iDevice.

You can grab Speedball 2 Evolution from the App Store now for 59 whole pennies.
