Speedball 2 Evolution is a phenomenal update to one of the best-loved videogames of all time.

Speedball 2 Evolution has been developed by Vivid Games, under the guidance of The Bitmap Brothers and Tower Studios’ Jon Hare, designer of Sensible Soccer and many other hits.

With quick-play, league and cup tournaments, players can enjoy a quick game or a more structured competition – but it is the comprehensive career mode, including the new Speedball Champions League, which offers hour upon hour of entertainment which will really grab the attention.

The game offers two alternative control systems: a classic, soft joypad, which replicates the controls of the early computer versions, and a new, innovative tilt-to-move option, in which team-mates can be manipulated simply by moving the device, meaning the whole screen can be seen at all times on the iPhone.
Other enhancements include brand new visuals designed specifically to showcase the iOS devices, local multiplayer competitions across Bluetooth and Wi-fi, and a host of gameplay tweaks designed to deliver the perfect Speedball experience.

“Fans who have been yearning for a modern incarnation of Speedball have only a week longer to wait,” says Jon Hare, the game’s creative director. “But as well as allowing the millions of existing fans to welcome home an old friend, we will also be introducing Speedball to a whole new generation. The game remains as playable as the day it was first launched – and with this being the definitive version for many, many years, we hope it proves itself to be the most popular.”

Speedball 2 Evolution will be available worldwide in the App Store on February 24th 2011, price tbc.
