“Just as the name remains the same, so does the awesome game-play....if you are a fan of the original Speedball and Speedball 2, then you need this, as it is in my opinion better than it was back in the day. If you are completely new to the game you owe it to yourself to go brutal deluxe.” – Touchgen

What's New in Version 1.3.1
Added official support for iPad 3
Great fun but not the challenge of the original
This captures the style and gameplay of the original wonderfully. It remains a great game with plenty of game play in it.
However, it is not as challenging as the original. You really had a struggle on your hands to progress in it. This port seems a little more pedestrian and the AI a little deficient in areas. It isn't so bad as to ruin the experience it just isn't quite what it cold have been.
I'm not quite won over by the controls either. The tilt control is hopeless. The floating joystick is manageable but not ideal.
Those negatives aside, it is good fun and worth giving it a spin.
A really impressive version of the Amiga classic. Love the added competitions and features. The updated graphics improve on the original without losing the character or style. Highly addictive. The only negative I can think of is not having the original music, but I guess you can't have everything...oh one more thing - an online cup competition with customisable teams would be incredible. Perhaps an in app purchase? Also designing your own team strip? Do it! You know you want to.
Very Good Reimagining
Well balanced sequel to the er, sequel on the amiga. The controls work a treat and I feel I've only scratched the surface of the content.
I have a small issue with the developer not using the very recognisable signature theme music from the original. Just seems like a missed opportunity, but not a big deal.
My only real gripe is with the art. It's as though somebody drew over the amazing bitmap brothers trademark pixel popped style in photoshop rather than use a pixel art package like pro-motion for the job. Those in game uniforms have lost their shine and some of the chizzled, well defined player faces lack their previous definition.
I hope the game has massive success though, perhaps enough for the developer to put a call in to the original artists for consultation on a graphical update.
Overall, superb and very replayable.
...One question remains. when are you going to do the IOS version of Gods.
