    In re-creating a classic game, Vivid Studios have triumphed with this iOS version. Every ounce of fun has been successfully transplanted from the Amiga classic. But more than that, they've added to it without diluting what made the original so good.

    I am extremely happy with how well the game has been treated in its transfer to iOS. The control scheme is simple, but perfect for the touch screen.

    This is a classic arcade-style sports game that is more about fun than about simulation and accuracy.

    The Amiga's future sports superstar makes its most successful comeback yet, with a game that feels just as fresh as it did 20 years ago.

    Revivals of great classic titles deserve nothing less than a polished update and Speedball 2 Evolution delivers almost perfectly - just remember to take some time out to get comfortable with controls first.

    A great way for people that may have missed the original game to check it out now, but veterans may be disappointed at how easy it has become.

    Might be the best version of the classic sports game to come out in recent years, but that's mostly because nobody has yet made a fantastic port of it (don't touch that hideous XBLA remake).
