Only got the chance to play this a couple times 2-player... mate with a ST
had a ST/Amiga switchable mouse, brought it around for some Lemmings mayhem!
(Gary - the 2-player version is on your CD32-200 compilation, yes? Still haven't finished downloading the damn thing...

For more than 2 players... Master Blaster was awesome!
A group of my friends would play it for hours every weekend for a while there... I made a 4-player adaptor for some 5-player fun (one on keyboard).
