Speedball 2 - Evolution
Action, Sport, Mini
Far too many times, games get announced, then nothing ever appears, like Mecho Wars or Virtual City PSP. But sometimes, they actually do finally come out! Speedball 2 Evolution is one of those games. It’s an update of an old game that first appeared on the Atari ST and a whole lot of other computers of the late ’80s, as well as ports and sequels on most platforms since. This particular entry in the series first appeared on iOS, as is often the case, and is brought to the PSP by Vivid Games and published by Tower Studios. Regardless of its origin, it’s in a genre that is quite lacking among Minis: sports. Other than racing games, we’ve only had one sports title—football (soccer) management. This actually bears some resemblance to that, because you are at the helm of a Speedball team. Speedball is essentially a futuristic variation on football (a combination of all types, though closest to soccer, but where you can carry the ball with your hands), with a little bit of pinball thrown in.
