Do you mean Amiga games that use the 4-player adapter (although I don't really know of any) or games on any machine in general that use it (that's a lot easier)?

You sure Hired Guns was specifically 4-player? As in multiplayer? I know you could control 4 characters in one mission in the game, but really you only need one person to control them.

Well then i guess youŽve missed where hired guns is best. Multiplayer hired guns gives so much more than just playing all four characters yourself.

You can select everything from 1 - 4 players. Using everything from mouse to keyboard to joystick and sega megadrive pad...

Try it out. 4 players is almost to many, we usually play 3... i just love games where multiplayer is cooperative instead of playing against one another...

My favourite game supporting the adapter would be Blitzbombers (Aminet).
This is the best Bomberman clone you'll ever come across, including
cute subgames, and a lot of funny extras... (requires AGA and some
FastRAM though...) We played that for hundreds of hours after we
built the adapter....

Another nice title is "Great Courts 2". Max Rally also rocks (sort of
MicroMachines with four player mode).

I'll append a list of all games supporting the adapter to this posting. I'm still
working on this (will be part of my soon-to-come homepage), so it's probably
incomplete and there may be some faults in there....

Does anybody know if the following titles support the adapter? I still have to
check them...

- Eat the Whistle
- Street Racer
- Which parts of the Skidmarks series ?
- Micro Machines 2

Freeware:

- Blast Squad (MantaSoft)
- Spod Racer (MantaSoft)
- Monsters of Terror/Nordlicht (Full version anyone?)

Worm Wars supports 4-player joystick adapters, among other input devices. Although since I don't have one myself I was unable to actually test.

Next version will also add support for play by CDTV infrared remote control...

Question

There were a few earlier Amiga titles that used the 4 player adapter facility, though my memory's a tad fuzzy as I only recall reading of them in some Zzap magazine reviews.
There use to be a popular adapter (I think) made by Microdeal(?) that these games used.
One was a shoot-em-up called Leatherneck,(or Leatherface??). I think Kick Off 2 also supported 4 players didn't it?
And there was also a couple of Tennis games that supported extra players.
One of them was by Ubisoft & the other by Loricel.
I don't have the magazines handy so I'll have to look them up later if noone can remember the names....

Games that support 4-player adaptor?

I just found an adaptor in a small box of s/h games included with an A500, none of which to the best of my knowledge support 4 players. So, what I'd like to know are the names of (as many as possible!) games that use it so I can give it a try?

The Loriciel Tennis game from the other thread it Tennis Cup 2 (Dunno if the 1st one supports it), and the ubi soft one is Great Courts 2 (I also never played the 1st one)

Base Jumpers is a nice platform game that can be played with 4 players, and it's a very fun one.

Over The Net , if I am not mistaken, uses it too. It's a nice beach volley game.


Can't remember any other game now.

Return of the thread! (It is...)

There's probably loads that haven't been listed here. Air Taxi is an obvious one.

4 please!
