Good 2 player Amiga games?

Hi,

Got a mate coming round tomorrow, thought i might try and introduce him to some Amiga games. He's never played one, despite being a couple of years older than me.

I don't have 2 mice, or else I'd have probably gone with Settlers and Lemmings, but i do have 2 SEGA Megadrive pads.

He doesn't really like:

Racing games (except Forza, as he feels it's the only racing game out there that feels realistic)

My mind is just blank, preferably a game without long loading times, or slow gameplay, such as Scorched Tanks, amazing game, but takes too damn long to play a single round.

If it's a PD game, it would be nice to be told where i could find it in ADF format, as i suck at dealing with PD games in just their general form.

Thanks.

Hi Dreedo,

I would definitely recommend Pang by Ocean or Swiv...Or failing that Worms The Directors cut is pretty cool for multiplayer

Oh and forgot Gravity Power! (Amiga Format version)

Thanks for those, a couple look interesting.

Already very familiar with Worms, as i have played every game in the series bar Worms 3D, infact i live 11 miles from Team17's HQ.

No problem. I was in a pretty similar situation not too long ago...My friend and I thought we would play some old school Amiga games but when you're starring a massive list the mind does tend to go blank and suddenly you can`t think! Well good luck finding some cool games.

Since your sentence seems to imply there is a correlation, I need to ask if people living in the vicinity of their HQ are forced by the Team17's army to play all their games?

Me and my brother are always coming back to the one and only:
Z-Out
In our opinion one of the best 2-player shmups only superceded by Gradius V on the PS2.
Also, we still have fun with Micro Machines, Moonstone (not simulateneous) and Dynablaster (only if we can get 4-5 players).

That's funny, we have also played Z-Out to death with my brother, it's somehow addictive . Also Dynablaster is great! Pit-Fighter is nice brutal with a comical twist. Just try Kato and his lightning fast hit when the enemy's down

Good choices there Jerry. Dynablaster is a lot of fun. Moonstone is two players when you fight each other, which is a cool. Castle crashers reminds me of moonstone.
