Now here's a game I never really played as I could
never find someone to play it with - I find that games
like this only really work with two players. It wasn't
until Frank and I went to Retrovision 2010 that I
actually had a chance to play it. And what a mistake it
was! Frank thrashed me and for some reason I just
couldn't score. I took the 'Matt Allen' approach and
blamed the joystick ;-)
Speedball 2, like Speedball, is a futuristic sports game
where the aim is to throw the steel sphere into the
opponent's goal. It's quite violent, as you can punch
the opposing team which allows you to gain ground and
attack the opponent's goal area. You can play in a
league or in a knockout cup against numerous computer
opponents so there are plenty of matches to play. It's
simple, fast and addictive. It's all you can ask for in
a sports game (I stole all that from the
ending page) :-)
1: for the cup...
You da man!
Is that a Big Mac?
2: for the league...
Top of the league,
here we come...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I think Stadium64 just played through it :-)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
If you win the cup, then you get an ending screen with a
hand holding a trophy (looks like a Big Mac) and the
ending message: "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU WON THE CUP!".
If you win the league, you get the same image, but with
a different message: "YO! YOU DID IT! YOU TOOK BRUTAL
DELUXE TO THE TOP OF THE LEAGUE! OUTRAGEOUS, MAN
