Tough question. I think it would have to be R-Type. No, wait: Giga Wing... hang on, I mean Ikaruga. Or possibly Psyvariar. Or it could be Xenon 2 on the Amiga. But what about Gradius V? Maybe Gunbird 2. Or perhaps...

The summer of 1986 spent down the muzzies with 1943 on two player.

Raptor- call of the Shadows, It may not be every man's (or woman's) cup of tea but I loved it. At 6 or 7 years of age this game gave me the impression that I really was a fighter pilot, the last line of defence against the hoards of enemy craft that would come at me like there was no tomorrow. I felt a wave of great sadness as when I was shot down you would see the pilot crash and die. I urge you all, go now and find yourself a copy, shareware or the full version and fight the war of the skies and defeat the enemy before it defeats you.

Slapfight: Lovely graphics, pleasing weapons, jaunty music , and of course a slightly dodgy and totally irrelevant name.All I could want from a shooter. Classic.

Defender as it was such a jump in skill from Space invaders, pure adrenaline rush, Llamatron as a close second, take all the good bits of Robotron, add a bit of Minters magic dust, comedy samples and Llama`s and you have a classic :D

Easily SWIV for the Amiga: very good graphics, cool two-player mode and one (!) huge level stuffed with colourful and challenging enemies. Plus: hook your Amiga up to your stereo and blow your neighbours away with bass-powered explosions!

Silkworm - Very polished game, great laugh with 2 players, some great levels and end of level enemies and the right difficulty level
