Games that are multiplayer via serial link

Would it be possible to have a sub category in "Simultaneous players is" where it is noted if the game supports network/serial 2 (plus) players

Overdrive (Team17) is noted as being single player, but it has 2 player link up... Stunt Car Racer states 2 player and thats a link up game also

any thoughts?

I used to play Armaggedon, Lotus2, Stuntcar Racer and Vroom all the time with my brother via serial link up.

Nice i will try out Lotus2... my daughter plays that so a link game will be cool...

I wish the Alien Breeds were link ups

Just ordered a null modem cable, so my A600 and A1200 can be linked for two player gaming... my daughter and I might do some Amiga Multi-player Gaming videos for youtube... her idea!

Be great to link Super Skidmarks also... I've never done it but I bet it would be great fun.

Bumping an old thread.

We have the field "Simultaneous players" in HOL but it is not useable to filter out networked games.

Can I push for this feature for HOL, I think it would be a great addition and I'll help populate it. Perhaps one or two database fields per entry? (Link up yes/no, link type, inter platform networking e.g. connect to Atari)

There is quite a lot of information already available on EAB and other sites such as Moby

Please?
