Unreleased Sega Mega Drive Beastball ROM Surfaces Online

Unreleased-Sega-Mega-Drive-Beastball-ROM-Surfaces-OnlineYet another unreleased Sega Mega Drive game has been preserved in ROM format for all to enjoy, thanks to the continued efforts of the Summer of Protos. Beastball is the 16-bit Sega port of the Commodore Amiga and Atari Jaguar sporting brawl known as Brutal Sports Football.

Well known prototype preservers MrMark0673 and BeaglePuss have been hosting their Summer of Proto's over the last few months, bringing us some real gems including Dragon's Lair for the Sega Mega Drive. Beastball is their latest offering, now available to download.

Beastball (aka Brutal Sports Football) is a violence heavy and almost rule free American football clash, following a very similar style of gameplay to the groundbreaking Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe. Get the ball and break your way through your opponents defence in any way possible before shooting home.

Although this port offers few differences to the retail versions available, this is yet another piece of gaming history preserved both for ourselves and future gaming generations to come. (That's the RetroCollect seal of approval right there!)

The ROM can be downloaded from the on going Summer of Protos thread over at SegaAge (Link in the first post). Time to get brawling!
