list of 2600 games that use 2 joysticks

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I was wondering if anybody compiled a list of 2600 games that use 2 controllers. I know that stargate uses 2 controllers, and I think Raiders of the Lost Ark also uses 2 joysticks. What other games uses 2 controllers as well?

 

Thanks,

Mike

Combat uses 2 joysticks. :ponder:

:lol:

 

Crypts of Chaos

Spy Hunter

Riddle of the Sphinx

Omega Race (if you count the booster grip as a joystick)

Defender II

 

...Bumper Bash requires both paddles be used :)

Does Missile Command use two joysticks? I never cared for the game so I can't remember...I was watching Everybody Hates Chris and he was playing Missile Command with his friend and it didn't seem right

The only ones missing are

 

Radar Lock

 

Solaris

 

Video Life

 

 

 

 

(and I think you may be mistaken about Crypts of Chaos...The manual makes no mention of needing 2 joysticks.)

Thanks! You're right. I was thinking you needed the second controller to move the cursor down below for inventory, but was mistaken :)

Polite apologies for reviving a dead thread, but you guys forgot Raiders of the Lost Ark!

 

I was looking into modifying a db9 y-connector into a single genesis-controller solution for Spy Hunter and possibly some of the others on the list. If anyone is interested I'll provide details as I work on it.

Huh? RotLA is listed in the very first post...

Oops. Guess I missed that.

 

Is there a link to this project? I was just going to swap the pin for the A/start on the Genesis pad for the 2-player joystick button. I'm wondering if this project was the same thing and if they needed to also hook up any grounding pins.

 

Ideally I'd love to figure out a way to remap all the Genesis buttons to different joystick directions, but that too advanced for me at this point.

 

Anyways, thanks.

Did you know there exist hacks of most (all?) of the Atari 2-button games to directly use an unmodded Genesis controller? A bunch of others and even Omega Race has been enhanced that way. :)

Just need a Harmony cartridge if you don't have one already...
