    Default 2 player atari games needed quickly

    Hi there

    I have a friend coming over who I haven't seen in years and he is a self confessed atari nut. Before he comes tomorrow I would like to have a list of some good 2 player head to head 2600 games. I already have boxing, fishing derby, warlords and that sky diving game lined up along with summer, winter and california games.

    Can anyone throw out some quick suggestions, it will be much appreciated.

    Thanks
    I like turtles

    Joust is just a great game, and you can make it as cooperative or competitive as you like. Frogs n Flies is pretty fun. And, of course, Combat is an all-time favorite of mine.

    Video Olympics (needs paddle controllers)
    Warlords (paddle)

    Human Cannonball has 2 player settings... it's short though, but causing the most painful-looking miss is always fun.

    Maze Craze is a good one, and there are different challenges such as blanked out sections of the maze, chasing robbers or avoid being caught by the police.

    Space Invaders - simultaneously cooperative and competitive.

    Two player games on Atari really make this system shine.
    My top 3 favorite 2 player games are:
    -Slot Racers(give this game a chance, it is a blast head-2-head, the more you play this game, the better it gets)
    -Maze Craze(too much fun)
    -Indy 500 (so many good variations, the tag games are a blast)
