What about Gauntlet II on the Amiga ... it's a 4 player and I now have the 4 player adaptor
If not, what about Dynablaster, on the Amiga. Yet again, it's a 5-player (4 on stick/pad and 1 on keys)!

I still say Shadow Warriors (aka Ninja Gaiden) by Ocean. It had fantastic box art (on the home micro's) that would make a great cover, and its quite a good game to boot.

If not, there's always the multiplayer pub crawl and the front cover could be of Woody falling out the pub after a few :wink:

I personally don't think the feature suits multiplayer games like that as it is all about individual views and comments.
I have made the decision on the game now as I needed it to tie in to other features at the show.

The game we will be playing is Paperboy and we will have a random draw from the comment cards that you guys fill in and the lucky person will win a Paperboy LCD game and maybe a few other goodies.
I hope to have 5 or 6 different versions for people to play on as well as a proper Paperboy arcade machine.

Will you be covering the Handheld conversions? Ie Lynx, Gameboy etc?

Also, Any of the versions that appeared on the Midway Retro Comps? i.e Arcade treasures.

We will have the Game Gear version at least. If I can get hold of others then they will be included too (if anyone has them for sale let me know).

Not planning on covering the compilation versions at the show.

I have got the Midway Arcade Treasures version on the PS2. I also have the C64, C16 and PC DOS version which I can bring along (but not originals).

There are quite a few versions (all mentioned in the games Wikipedia Article), including one on the XBox360 Live Arcade.

I also have the MAME version, but it will not work with a standard X Arcade Controller. I guess this is something to do with the unique handlebar controller that the arcade version had. Does anyone know the best controller to use to play this in Mame?

Should work with Standard controls including the xarcade. Have you tried bringing up the TAB menu and resetting the controls?.
