Speedball review

"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
