Barrysworld - Bitmap Brothers Interview

    Picture the scene. An ickle 15 year old girl sits in front of her father's Amiga frantically smacking a creaky plastic joystick round the desk, swearing and cursing at the TV and annoying the hell out of the aforementioned father with the constant clicking of microswitches and overuse of profanity. Occasionally the old man sits forward from his armchair, looks back and mutters something about Blue Peter or other such 'respectable' distractions, but the little girl is too busy to listen.

GameSpot UK's 100 Games of the Millennium - Speedball 2: Number 36

    Go on, kick his head in!

    Back before multiplayer was the norm - before Quake, before even Doom - if you wanted to pass a pleasant evening beating the crap out of your friends there was only one real choice (well, apart from actually beating the crap out of them...): Speedball 2.
