there's been some really great two players games for the amiga, but one stands way above the others to me... I can't belive it hasn't been mentioned yet, FirePower! the hectic dashes for the flag, finding it and bringing it back before your buddy blows you to hell and gone... wow, good memories

1) Troddlers --- You can't beat it for two-player and it is very good one player
2) IK+
3) Battle Squadron
4) Worms
5) Scorched Tanks

We used to play Super Skidmarks but made our own rules, the best of which was 'tag'. You try that with two players (driving any direction you like, tagging your opponent and tell me it isn't addictive)

I don't know why other versions didn't include the 2 player mode - maybe because owning 2 'mice' back then was rare. PC owners missed out on this altogether. How sad
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! Awesome fun!
(Gary - the 2-player version is on your CD32-200 compilation, yes? Still haven't finished downloading the damn thing... )

Spy vs Spy - never had this on Ami, but played all 3 extensively on C64.

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).
(then the disk died... and the next version of it was limited to 3 players unless you registered )

For those fans of Bubble Bobble... check out this open-source version on SourceForge - lets you have up to 10 players on a LAN!
(haven't tried it myself, but it sounds good...)

Space Crusade! Fantastic, especially in 3-player mode. It's incredibly atmospheric and tense, and hours pass without anyone realising. Completely brilliant.

Also - Projectyle. Completely insane, but great fun, again with three players.
