Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe

It's been two years since the last ball was thrown on a Speedball pitch. There are new teams, new stadia, and new rules. The arena is bigger, the players are tougher, and the action is faster than ever before. 

The challenge is this: take control of Brutal Deluxe, the worst team in Speedball history, and turn them into champions. 

Speedball 2 is a different ball game!


Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe is a video game based on a violent futuristic cyberpunk sport that draws on elements of handball and ice hockey, and rewards violent play as well as goals. The concept of the game is very reminiscent of the 1975 film Rollerball. The original game was developed by Bitmap Brothers and is one of their most successful titles. Originally released for the Atari ST in 1990, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe has been ported to a variety of additional systems and has finally made it's way to the Atari Jaguar!

 

Speedball 2 is our first 6MB Atari Jaguar cartridge!  Most Jaguar carts are 2MB or 4MB in size.  We have some additional 6MB games in the works as well.

Fantasy World Dizzy

Dizzy & Daisy strolled through the enchanted forest without a care in the world... But suddenly the Evil King's trolls seized poor Daisy! She was sent to the Wizards Weird's Tallest Tower, while Dizzy was dragged away and thrown into the deepest, darkest, dankest of the King's Dungeons in the bowels of Fantasy World. 

Dizzy was frightened! Who knew what fate awaited him...and he still hadn't done this week's homework! But then he remembered that he had a fresh green apple that he had planned to give to his teacher to escape detention, and he cheered up. And there was some bread and water on the table! 

A cunning plan began to brew in his mind...
Dizzy and The Yolkfolk are characters created by the Oliver Twins, and these characters would appear in many games during the 8 and 16-bit eras. Most of their appearances were in multi-screen platform adventure puzzle games, however, they also appeared in some great arcade games as the title characters. 

Slowly, over the course of the series, we learn more about this odd little family and help them out of the tricky situations they find themselves in by visiting the many varied locations of their magical world.Fantasy World Dizzy is our second Dizzy release, following on the heels of Treasure Island Dizzy, which is still available for purchase (get it while supplies last, though!)

The page in the store says you can save your current game, makes no other mentions. I'm sure Al or CJ can clarify the save capabilities.

Games can be saved for League and Cup competitions.  Beyond that, I'll have to let CJ answer.  :D

Other than the obvious size increase... are there a bunch of games that could now potentially fit that were a no go before?

Great to finally be able to announce these two.  So many people have asked about them, or requested them and I haven't been able to say anything!

 

Thanks to all for the kind words and continued support, and very special thanks to Mike Montgomery and both Philip and Andrew Oliver for again making these releases possible.

 

Now, let's crack on and get eggcited for Brutal Deluxe - Winning the Leage and Cup will make them Dizzy!  (Groan!) :D

It's turning into a weakness for me too, I've actually begun to consider selling off some of my NES collection to finance more Jag carts.....
