View Full Version : 2-player games...

I'm surprised that there seems no thread about this at all. Let's discuss what games are 2-player, and how they work, i.e. which games need a link cable, and which are two-player by using the same single cart and one Game Gear?

I'm asking because 5-in-1 Funpak does that approach to 2-player mode for all its games. Also The Chessmaster has 2-player with one cart and one Game Gear, but I also don't have a second Game Gear and link cable, to check if plugging it in might make a new mode come up...?

Are there other games that have 2-player mode on one Game Gear like this?

Also what (if any) 2-player games have people really played properly with a link cable? Personally, I've never seen a link cable in real life lol.

This page on MobyGames has a list of 2-Player Game Gear titles:

I have Sonic Drift 2 and would've loved to play it 2-Player but I didn't own the link cable. Or knew anyone else with a Game Gear and Sonic Drift 2 at the time. :(

What about 2 players, 2 Game Gears, but only 1 cart?
