Best 2600 two-player games?

Recommended Posts

no one mentioned Co-Op Space Invaders ( I like standard Co-Op play myself #33 )

 

another interesting thing I've done is play most all variations of Combat in one sitting, possibly skipping a couple maze variations & swapping controllers for the 1~vs~3 variants

 

it's nice when I have my younger nephews excitedly ask if I brought my console to play some Warlords ... I keep a setup in a "go-bag"

I definitely would go with Maze Craze, since it was easy to lure the other player into following you. Warlords technically isn't 2 player, but I'd put that in my top list too. Any sports game is better 2 player than against the computer. Wizard of Wor is cool for the fact you work together.

Joust, Mario Bros., Wizard of Wor, Super Breakout, Space Invaders, Combat of course, and... Super Challenge Baseball! :love:

Agree on Wizard of War, Joust and Combat save2600. I think Pong variants/Video Olympics have better two player action than Breakout.

My favorite two play Atari 2600 game is Realsports Volleyball. (And I don't like sports) But I think this has the most fun two player gameplay for the system.

 

Also great: Frogs & Flies, Warlords, Maze Craze

I absolutely love Sears Telegames Maze. I do not remember the Atari name but Maze with two people would make us laugh and also get really angry growing up. Tank Plus was another gem and as a really young child Target Fun was a beast. I remember playing with my dad and hearing those Target Fun sounds brings me back in time.

Fishing Derby by Activision.

 

I second Frogs & Flies, just don't forget to toggle the difficulty switch.

 

And I'm saying Combat, just because it really is that good.

Dodge 'Em

 

I was just asking about classic 2P at same time games that would hold the interest of pre-teens / teens.

VectorGamer make a video rating all of them one after another as playing same time fun rating. They are not all paddle games.

Well, since this post was revived, I'll go with G.I. Joe. My 21 year old son came over the other day & we played it for about an hour, got 50,000 points, which is way better than I can get solo on it. I never owned this one BITD, just got it a few weeks ago. Lots of fun, there's even a 3 player option where you can play as 'The Cobra'!

M-network Super Challenge Football. Always fun to juke your opponent out and get additional yardage. Also liked to break coverage to get open for the pass reception.
