Speedball 2100 PSX

Has anyone ever played this ?

I got the game, was this actually developed by the same guys who made Speedball 2? Because they FUCKED UP badly the game. I think it was supposed to be just Speedball 2 with spiced up graphics, but they managed to fuck up the gameplay badly...

I preferred Speedball 2, but 2100 ain't too bad.

I'm trying to track down sb2 for the gameboy advance (not the gameboy version). Anyone played this?

Speedball 2100 is made by the same team, yes. I agree that they messed it up, but there's little chance to improve on perfection anyways. I've been playing Speedball 2 with my younger brother, and it's definately one game you always come back to.

The GBA version is close to 100% perfect port of the CD32 version. I think.

I could live with EXACTLY the same game

My biggest gripe is that I still didn't figured out how to do the "slightly diagonal" throws. That were easy to do in the Amiga, and they are key to the game. I am not even sure if you can do that in 2100.

I thought it was pretty awful too.... I think there's even another one on the PSX called "Speedball 2035" ... or something like that... I'm sure there's two on the ps1.

I was perfectly happy with the ECS amiga version, brightening the red and blue didnt do squat!

Let me ask again, just to be sure.

Is Speedball 2100 made by the same PEOPLE who did Speedball 2? I mean, I know both games were developed by Bitmap Brothers, my question is more about the individual people. Are the same coders, same artists, etc etc?

I ask that because I find too weird that the guys who make an excellent game, a few years laters, have no idea of how they made that game so good.

Speedball 2100 feels like it was programmed by guys who had played Speedball 2, but didn't have much of an idea of how the game works deeply.

It really isn't that uncommon.

Two examples:
Shadow of the Beast 1/2/3, Brian the Lion -> Driver 1 -> Driv3r
Sensible World of Soccer -> Sensible Soccer '98

And, why not just check the credits? The booklet should have a list of those who developed the game, so check in that one.
