Official CD32 games that benefit from having a keyboard?

I got the Lyra 3 adapter from Amikit recently and I wanted to try it out with officially released titles.

Since Super Skidmarks supports three simultaneous keyboard players, just having a keyboard upgrades the game from being two player only to five player (!), also it makes it possible to quit in the middle of a race.

I went looking to find other games that benefit in a similar way and all I could find was Base Jumpers (although it already supported four players, as you can have two players per joypad)

Is there any others that have a decent benefit from having a keyboard?

Edit: Super Skidmarks actually only goes up to four players. My bad!

Is there a demo of Big End or something anywhere? Where did the screenshots come from? Looks great.

Frontier: Elite 2 is a lot more playable using keyboard shortcuts (and a mouse) than the CD32 controller.

@akira looks like some of the resources were dug up but we haven't seen a release yet. http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?p=936583

@daedalus ah, didn't think of that. I can only assume that goes for Wing Commander, Gunship 2000 and Subwar too

Hi, I've bought a Lyra 3 adapter recently, but don't know how to use it. When I switch on my cd32, the three leds (capslock/numlock/scrollock) blink once, but after the keyboard doesn't work. I tried to enter configuration mode by pressing left Shift and Pause, but it does nothing. Can someone help me?
