Latest Reviews: Speedball

Speedball is a video game created by The Bitmap Brothers based on a violent futuristic sport and probably inspired by the 1975 sci-fi movie Rollerball.

Initially developed for Amiga and published in 1988, the game was later ported to Atari ST, Commodore 64 and DOS. A SEGA Master System and a NES version were also released later.

The game is a sort of mix between hockey and five-a-side football. The Bitmap Brothers created an innovative and revolutionary game, considering the time. The music by David Whittaker e the graphics by Mark Coleman (Gods, Xenon 2, Interphase) helped a lot, but the fast and furious gameplay is what gamers really appreciated.
