Ratings and Reviews
This is the Speedball2, you don't need in app purchases
Delighted to confirm, this is fundamentally the same game as the original (maybe Atari version??)
Pros: Worthy rendition of speedball 2 originally from the bitmap bros.
Cons: Original preamble has been replaced, AND they changed Caza's name. Such a pity ;)
Please note, In app purchases are not needed at all. Not at all. You buy the game, you get the full game. No worries. And it's genuine speedball 2 tastic .
I was worried that the in-app purchases would render the game unplayable courtesy of artificial add ons like war hammer or hitman construct, so almost didn't buy it. It doesn't. There is absolutely no need for them. I suspect they are there simply for those wealthy and generous folk who are eager to give the developers a bigger bonus.
The port to touch screen / tilt is tricky (as always) but the game play has been adjusted to compensate. The output is a slight comprise in challenge, but it's appropriate and imho believe the choice was the right one for optimising enjoyment and playability.
So yes, it is for sure easy enough if you want it to be, but then, it was on the amiga too. If you are looking for more of a challenge, use the gym instead of buying players, and make your players tough while refraining from hyping scoring skills, and voila, the game is tough but playable. You're welcome:)
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.
