Speedball 2 Ultimate is coming to the C64 but testers are needed!


Lets go back to the 90's, a time of violent handball and ice hockey action, in which violence meets goal scoring antics that appeared in our homes on the Acorn Archimedes, Atari ST, Amiga, Amiga CD32, PC, Commodore 64, Sega Mega Drive, Sega Master System, Game Boy and even the Game Boy Advance. Yes it is none other than Speedball 2, a 1990 game developed by Bitmap Brothers as the sequel to the 1988 game Speedball. So why am I mentioning this game you might ask? Well Ste'86 and Excess are working on a rather nice C64 overhaul called Speedball 2 Ultimate!


Not as if the "Ice Cream, Ice Cream" experience of the original C64 version was a bad one, far from it, but Ste and Excess are hoping to give a boost to the overall experience of the game with inclusive images that ring home to any avid Amiga fan, such as the defeat screen and other in-between screens that had to be limited by having this game squeezed onto the C64 by Carl Muller.


Of course other enhancements and tweaking may well appear through the months but as of this moment they aren't doing this all themselves as they do need you as a tester to make this a much more enjoyable experience. Such as being a season veteran to playtest the game (1p, 2p, knockout, league & cup) and Ideally you have a PAL/NTSC C64 & EasyFlash hardware, but VICE is ok too.
