What are the best multiplayer games for the Odyssey2/Videopac? Most of the game library are multiplayer or let you take turns for a high-score.

I was wonder which multiplayer games are the most fun and competitive?

Also, which games have some kind of a co-op feature where you can both work together simultaneously to reach a high level or high-score.

From the original games "Stonesling" is my absolute favorite! Also "Acrobats" can be played with two players and is fun too.

From the homebrews "Mr Roboto" is a true highlight. We play this one at every Videopac session just like Stonesling (isn't it Dieter?  :D)

Monkeyshines is great as a competitive or cooperative multiplayer.  You can even get three players working at the same time with one person working on the keyboard to add/remove pieces on the screen.  I view this game as a distant ancestor of Towerfall.

Quest for the Rings is another fun co-op two player game.

Gunfighter (aka "Showdown In 2100 AD" here in the US) is one of my favorite Odyssey games.  Love playing this against my brother or my kids.  There's certainly skill in this game, but the randomness of the ricochets off the trees adds a lot of fun too.

I still play #4 Air-Sea Battle (the mode where you can direct your shots) regularly with a mate  :)
