“What made you decide now was the right time to bring Speedball II to GB Advance?”

from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 119 (August 2002)

A small preview of Speedball 2 on GBA, plus an interview with Ed Bartlett of the Bitmap Brothers. I was going to say this was probably the precursor to Speedball 2 seeing ports to every platform under the sun, but I think it’d already accomplished that when it got a release on the Acorn Archimedes. Games by the Bitmap Brothers continue to see rereleases, from the PSP Mini to Xbox 360 Arcade to iOS, always getting fresh news coverage every time…
… but I’ve no idea if the company still exists as a development studio, or if they’re just around to hawk their old wares and get paid for interviews. It’s a bit of a bummer, as I’d like to see what devs from the Amiga era could be making in this day and age, but it’s also good to see them still making money off their old work and keeping it available.
