    Default What are the best 2 Player Gameboy Games?

    I'm planning on having a classic gaming get together sometime in the future and would like to pick up some of the best 2 player (preferably vs) games for the original gameboy. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    Faceball 2000, perhaps?

    I'd like to say Yoshi's Cookie, but there are other ways to play that. And that's a good question, actually: are you looking for sort-of GB exclusives?

    Not necessarily, just some fun choices.

    Well, I'll have several different systems and a Mame cabinet as well. It's just that I have 2 gameboys and a link cable but no 2 player games, not 2 of the same game at least...I just thought that 2 player GB would be a fun option since I already have the systems and all. The games seem to be cheap and easy to get at my local game store but since I'd need 2 of each I didn't want to end up with a bunch of crap times 2.

    And, I'll have Tetris for sure.

    You have one heck of a local game store, then. Perhaps you should double-check on the selection there.

    I dimly recall that Revenge of the Gator is supposed to be kind of fun in two-player mode, and apparently Space Invaders is pretty good too.

    These also come to mind, but I'm really not sure about a lot of them. Perhaps you should try them in 1-player mode on an emulator first.

    Well, the games you'd expect to be more are generally priced higher, but most of the cart only original GB games are $5 or less. Maybe not always the best deal you can find but certainly affordable.

    What is this Tetris I keep hearing about??? Seriously though, does 2 players really add a lot to it to make it the definitive 2 player Gameboy game...or is that just the one most people have played since everyone had it? It's like Puyo Puyo where you send junk to the other players screen right?

    I'm certainly going to pick up another copy. And thanks for the other suggestions as well, I'll be sure to check them all out.

    Indeed, I think there are much better multiplayer versions of Tetris. 2-player Game Boy Tetris seems to devolve pretty quickly into a contest of who can get the most 4-bars. But it's well-presented and has Mario and Luigi and more good music.

    Super R.C. Pro-Am would be my top pick. It's classic NES style R.C. Pro-Am, supports up to four players (with the four player adapter) and is an outstanding on the go game. I'd also toss F-1 Race in there as well. It's kind of like Pole Position on the Game Boy and also supports four players.
