Developer Kylotonn has just finished a preview version of Speedball 2, which features a new gigantic arena for the tough future sports matches. This second stadium is now fully playable along with the arena shown at the Games Convention. Since Kylotonn has animated the audience in this version, cheering fans create a vital backdrop for the dynamic sport battles of Speedball 2. In the final release version players will be able to choose from four impressive arenas – each with unique appearance and atmosphere.
The current version already contains a new special move called ?dragon punch?. This mighty defense tackling is available in the Advanced Mode. Players are now able to hit their opponents with the powerful ?dragon punch?, when these try to jump over their attack. The visual impression of fast dodging manoeuvres has now been intensified by a motion blur effect. The version now shows collected power-ups as clear symbols in the HUD. Power-ups like ?freeze opponent?s team? or ?reverse control of adversary? immediately recreate the fun factor of the legendary computergames classic.
Images of the new arena, screenshots of the new features and a sketch of the cute robot nurse that transports injured players off the field are now available in a big picture set on www.speedball2.com. In addition to that, true fans can download a cool cell phone theme for popular models of Sony Ericsson including icecream ringtones, the game trailer in mobile format and a speedball design on the games portal.
