“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
“Its unique gameplay and brutal multiplayer is still as bone-crunchingly appealing as when it first appeared on the Atari all those years ago.” – PocketGamer
“A must-download, particularly for fans of the original. Newcomers to Speedball will find plenty to smile about too.” – Appys

What's New in Version 1.3.1
Added official support for iPad 3
Love it!! GET READY!
Always felt the original needed some minor tweaking, as opposed to some of the overhauls we've seen over the years. I love the original graphics and sound, and the additions of the inter-galactic cups and champions league, as well as the new stadiums.
I don't like that you only play all the teams in the league once now as opposed to twice. It seems like the AI isn't as good as it use to be, but the 5 star teams are tough. I also don't like that injuries don't carry over to the gym and next match. Overall though, loads of fun. Wish bitmap would get this perfect already. Nice update though without destroying the great original engine.
Would be fun with non-terrible controls
Let me preface this by saying that I've played a ton of this game and I've really enjoyed it.
However, it is seriously hampered by its terrible control scheme. Whoever decided that a migrating joystick is a good idea and should be actively added to the game is bad at designing games and should be excluded from making gameplay decisions ever again. Other issues include apparent input lag and poor player switching AI. There might be more elegant play styles possible, but I only ever succeeded by punching the other team to death in order to score. 3/5 stars.
Retro arcade fun with wonky controls
I wasn't aware this was an old game but that also explains why it has such charm. It's a little difficult maneuvering the players with any kind of precision in Speedball 2 since the controls are kinda wonky but it's not too bad. And it's probably asking too much but it'd be nice if the game were updated to take advantage of the iPhone 4 display size (and get rid of those black bars). But seeing how Speedball 2 hasn't had a content update in over a year, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for one.
