When I was younger I used to have the fabulous Commodore Amiga 500, of course at the time it was one of the most advanced home computers available, though now it just seems like a bit of fun. Very much like the Atari Master System used to seem a decade earlier.
Speedball was probably my favourite game on the Amiga. It's like a kind of futuristic more aggressive version of football, except without the rules! Basically, as long as you get the ball in the net then you score a point. Anything else is pretty much meaningless.
The characters in the game are apparently dressed up in steel armour while they roughly bump and knock each other out of the way and punch each other trying to steal the ball and get it to their scoring net.
It's quite a simple concept for a game and as you can probably imagine it's great fun to take out your aggression while having some fun. The violence isn't too aggressive and doesn't get gory so it's not too bad for the kids.
Speedball was from british developers the bitmap brothers and is a lighting fast top down futuristic sports game. Its got a cool combat system and upgrades for your players, including armour steel gloves and a simple pick up and play gameplay feel.

SpeedBall!! if age certs on games were around when this one first came out, it would have been an 18, for the graphics.
The game is a cross between American football and a violent shoot em' up and beat em up' set in the future.
this game leed the way for others
The sound is flawless. Both the soundtrack, an electronic industrialized masterpiece, and the in game sound effects are superb. The clunk of the metallic ball with the metallic walls of the arena, the tackling, the fantastic announcer voice and the humorous voice that sells ice creams during the best replays, all contribute to a fantastic atmosphere that just oozes all over the frantic gameplay. It probably wouldn't be incorrect to label Speedball 2 the best Amiga game ever, or even one of the best games ever, because, quite simply, it might very well be. Played against the computer or a friend, the gameplay is nothing short of amazing, frantic, spectacular and aggressive action.
