Speedball 2 Evolution Hits The Mac App Store

The Bitmap Brothers have joined forces with Jon Hare’s Tower Studios and quality development house Vivid Games to create a stunning Mac version of the classic fusion of Ice Hockey, American Football and Pinball, better known as the futuristic sport of Speedball and first released by The Bitmap Brothers in 1990.

This brilliantly updated version of Speedball has proved an instant hit classic across Europe on iPad and iPhone, topping the charts in Germany, France, Italy and a host of other countries Worldwide Speedball 2 Evolution was the #1 top rated new game on the App Store in February of this year and averages 4.5 stars out of 5 on the UK AppStore from over 1,300 User Reviews.

With quick-play, league and cup tournaments, players can enjoy a quick game or a more structured competition – but it is the comprehensive 10 season career mode, including the new Speedball Champions League and a full player transfer market with 360 fully upgradable and transferable players which really grab the headlines.


Of course, the original game’s combination of fast-based cartoon violence, tongue-in-cheek humour, and perfect playability remain – making this the ideal handheld sports title for veteran Speedball players or newcomers to this most competitive of sports.

“This and the iOS versions of the game have now proven themselves beyond doubt to be the best versions of Speedball 2 available on the market since the original and the best remake of any classic title available from Apple on any format” says Jon Hare, the games creative director and CEO of publisher, Tower Studios. “To existing fans this is a classic remake, to the new generation of players this is a fantastic new game.”
