Bitmap Brothers developed the DOS science fiction sports game Speedball in 1988.
Speedball is currently abandonware, runs on DOS and can be played in a top down perspective in single player, multiplayer (same or split screen) modes.
It's available for download.
"The Bitmaps have lost none of their flare for graphics and sound's good too. The gameplay's great and the action's manic throughout each of the short games. The underlying Rollerball theme of sport and violence has not been overdone and it adds a bit of a bite to the game, making it great fun to play." - ACE magazine
