Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe is a remake of the original Bitmap Brothers Amiga game, developed by Empire Interactive for the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade. The game was released on October 17, 2007 for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
The game features an almost exact conversion of the original 1991 game as well as an option to play it in an enhanced HD 3D mode. It also has the standard Xbox Live Arcade features such as Leaderboards and Achievements. The game also features larger leagues with more teams, and local and Xbox Live multiplayer modes.
Developer Empire Interactive was shutdown in May 2009, shortly after the game has been delisted from Xbox Live Arcade. Anyone who downloaded Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe when it was still available can keep the game on their console's hard drive, earn achievements, and continue to play it while connected to Xbox Live (including online multiplayer).
