What are your favorite 4 player (simultaneous) 2600 games?

Recommended Posts

Ok, just wondering, what are some favorite 4 player (simultaneous) 2600 games. My friends and i can't get enough of WARLORDS, but some of the VIDEO OLYMPICS games are great too. I'm in the market for some carts that can rival these titles......Let me see some top-five lists!

Warlords is the main reason to keep a 2600 around. I mean current games are not as much fun! It's fast, it's vicious... oh wow!!

Steeplechase is 4-player, too. I've never played it with anyone else, though. :sad: It might be a fun party game (but I think Warlords is better...more explosions).

 

Voch

I can't think of any besides those 3 (and I didn't even think of Steeplechase until it was mentioned).

 

Warlords ROCKS... it's unfortunate that it doesn't have more competition in the 4-player-simultaneous group, because it would still be the best.

Well, Warlords definitely has staying power over the other 2 games, so my vote goes to Warlords.

 

A great conversion of the coin-op and it's just plain fun!

Yeah, ive got streetracer and steeplechase. Neither of them are too great though (i'm not too fond of horse hurdling or whatever that is and street racer is like racing in slow motion). I was thinking about picking up a supercharger for the sole purpose of party mix, but i hear that stuff with the tapes is pretty annoying...

...so in conclusion, agreed, warlords owns the 4 player realm! Oh and what the fuck are those jagedly blob things inside the bases? are those flags? Castles? man, i love atari.

Those blobs are. . .Warlords.

 

Actually, I think the blobs are actually "kings" that you (the warlord/shield) are supposed to protect. I remember that description from one of the old Atari games catalogs...the crude drawing even showed a feeble old king in a castle.

From the manual:

 

2. BATTLE OBJECTIVE

 

The object of the battle is to destroy the other three warlords before your

warlord is destroyed. Use the Paddle Controller to protect your castle

and your warlord. (Your warlord is located inside the castle, as shown in

Figure 1.) Turn the knob on the controller to move your shield around your

castle and block the ball*. See Section 4--USING THE CONTROLLERS for more

details on controller use.

 

:D

Hmm...perhaps I am wrong. I could have sworn that the Catalog had a different storyline though. Can anyone confirm?

I always called it a King as well. I agree that this is one of the most fun Atari games ever, four player or otherwise.

In our house we play a lot of 4 player Warlords, 4 player Blackjack (in Casino), and 4 player Video Olympics...

Is there a 4-player version of Pong in Video Olympics where a player guards either the top, bottom, left, or right parts of the playfield? That'd be neat... :D
