Speedball is an action game released for the Sega Master System in 1990.

The game was followed by Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe.

History

Development

The Master System version of Speedball derives from the IBM PC version[4]. Graphics were created in The Advanced OCP Art Studio for the Atari ST[5].

Though the game was not released outside of PAL regions, Speedball on the Master System recognises an NTSC console and adjusts various factors (such as music speed) accordingly[5].
