London, UK - 2 July 2012 - Tower Studios and Vivid Games today announced that the much anticipated Android version of the classic futuristic smash ‘em up sports game, Speedball 2 Evolution, is now available on Google Play for mobiles and tablets. Speedball 2 Evolution brings its unique fusion of sports, humour and brutal combat to millions of Android gamers after having enjoyed huge success on iOS where it reached the top ten in over 69 countries, hitting the number 1 slot in 21 of them.
Set in the near future, Speedball 2 Evolution is a fast paced, brutal fusion of handball and ice hockey where only the fittest and most cunning survive. Players must carefully plan their strategy then hand pick their team from a roster of over 300 upgradeable players and 28 teams, before taking to the field using every trick in the book to power their way to victory through a mix of blood, sweat, fists and elbows. Speedball 2 Evolution is packed with a huge variety of game modes and features to keep players coming back for more, including over 20 in-match power-ups, single player tournaments, one-on-one multiplayer and a full career mode. Outside of the matches, gamers can also develop a world beating team by upgrading their players, earning cash and then trading them on the transfer market.
The Speedball series is in its twenty-fourth year, having created a massive following and goes from strength to strength on mobile, “Ever since its launch on iOS, we’ve had thousands of requests to bring Speedball 2 Evolution to Android devices. We’re pleased to be answering the wishes of so many fans and absolutely thrilled to finally be bringing the series to Android” said Remigiusz Koscielny, CEO of Vivid games.
