'Take control of Brutal Deluxe, the worst team in Speedball history, and turn them into champions. During the one-player option you can play a knockout competition playing against progressively tougher teams until you lose.
There's also a Cup option played over four two leg rounds but the main challenge is the full league. In this, Deluxe begin in Division 2 with their eventual aim being to win promotion and go for the title.
Should you prefer you can elect to manage the team, buy and sell players and let the computer handle events on the pitch. Two player games are also available with matches taking place over two legs.
Speedball2 is a mixture between American football and Hockey and is played across a massive metal pitch. The aim of the game is to guide a group of promising newcomers to glory, with the basic contents being a fantastic fast paced ruck where the players beat up anyone in their way as they try to slam the ball into the opponent's goal.
Power-ups and bonus points can be collected which will add extra abilities to your motley crew, such as extra armour, speed or other vital statistics. Money will also be available and can buy extra power or increase your overall playing ability.
Speedball 2 is played over 2 halves lasting 90 seconds each. Teams swap ends at half time; the action starts when the ball is launched into play in the centre of the pitch. This happens at the beginning of each period, or after a goal, or after a player has been substituted.
The object of the game is to score more points than our opponent - but how you do it is up to you !
