I'm surprised I forgot it! Worms DC is the best version of Worms that I've played.

I don't know.. I liked the speed. Haven't tried the game on many other systems, though. Maybe I'm missing out?

Ooh, that sounds very interesting! Thanks for the tip, I'll definitely look out for it (I haven't really tried emulating the Sega Mastersystem - only Amiga and C64 for me so far).

@Shatterhand: Me and a friend played The Settlers a lot. It's fantastic in two-player mode. Some of the games took weeks, even months to complete (mapsize 5, which was the largest my Amiga could handle at the time). I don't think I would have enough time for such long games these days, but it sure was fun.

North & South was a favourite of mine, excellent in two player as well.

I remember once playing a friend I had an entire army walk on screen and for him just one lone infantry soldier, we p***ed ourselves laughing at the time.

Reminds me of a recent game of Starcraft I had with a mate of mine. After an extremely bloody battle where most of my army was destroyed I made a final charge with my remaining forces on his multiple bases-albeit with one little zergling, quite funny when I started typing quotes of "Braveheart" to my mate as I charged into battle for the last time with my "army"!

Gravity Power was good (BINGO!)
So was Worms (DC especially).

But I think the best multiplayer game ever has to be Brutal Homicide! ( http://atomnet.co.uk/amiga/?p=engine...tal%20homicide )

Gravity Power is P.D./shareware/freeware.

At the moment the Hall Of Light deals with mostly commercial games, except in a few cases.

Thanks!!!!!!!!
I tried to remember the name of that game a while ago. Back in time, I connected the A1200 to both a monitor and a TV, each had 1 half of the screen occluded so my brother and I couldnt spy each other
Great game
