Smile Do you know good two-joystick-games ?

Hi, I know there were some threads like that but:
I need some good and fun-bringing AMIGA games that I can play with two joysticks at the same time with my girl-friend !
I have built a second joystick adapter for my second competition pro and now I need some "girl-friendly" games... not these beat/shoot-em-up things. Please help me...

BTW I don't want that she means that it had no sense to build this well done adapter...


AmiGer's reinsuring "girl-friendly" game list

Many of them can be played with two joysticks. So if you have problems to explain your girl-friend why you're hanging before your Amiga or PC-camouflaged WINUAE then invite her to a game.

Cool

It's a well known fact that girls don't like Sensi. Instead try 2 player Wiz 'n' Liz. My sister quite liked that game. Also 2 player Micro Machines might go down well.

Maybe 2 player Bubble Heroes if you have it. Basically the general rule with girls and computer games is if it's cute and cuddley they'll usually like it.

Pang, Twintris, Minskies, Blue Angel 69 (or similar game)

Now if you don't fear that she monopolize your amiga :
all Lemmings series
Indiana Jones last crusade & Fate of Atlantis, Monkey Island 1 & 2 or any others good adventure game

Erm, it would be better if it's a coop game, or else the relationship may end sooner than you think...

Qwak is a good 2 players coop game thats "girl-friendly" .


Now if you take my sister for example, she LOVES Salamander, The King of Fighters 99, the Parodius series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV, Streets of Rage, Pang series, Wiz'n' Liz, Wizkid... And she keeps bitching me about how I still didn't get any decent shoot'em up for my PSX !


Not your regular gaming girl, as you can see

Here is the result:

Wiz'n'Liz seems to be the hit for my girl-friend... Pang seems to be very hard but thanks to Toni for the Save State function...

Put her to play with Rainbow Islands and/or Parasol Stars.

Also girls like puzzlers, so a nice 2 player match of Time Lock might do wonders

Yeah, you just can't lose with this game (unless you overdose on cutesy!)

May I also recommend, to get her into the demoscene spirit, the cutesy 32K game Rise of the rabbits 2, by Abyss?

As a sporty alternative to platformers, may I suggest Super Tennis Champs. This brilliant game allows 2 players to play doubles together, and also features female tennis players.
