Pocket Speedball

PDA version of classic future sports game now available

Giving us one more reason to buy a Pocket PC, Infinite Ventures have announced the release of a PDA version of Speedball 2, the classic full contact futuristic sports game from The Bitmap Brothers. It's a dozen years since the game was originally released on the Amiga, but despite the disappointment of the PlayStation sequel and the host of second-rate imitators it's spawned over the years, we still have a soft spot for the Speedball series. Now Pocket PC owners can grab a free demo of the game from Portable-Games.com, or buy the full version for a princely $19.99. Just the thing to divert your attention during boring board meetings, and somewhat less conspicious in the office than a GameBoy...
