favourite co-op games for the PCE?
« on: February 28, 2020, 01:23:53 PM »
Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have any favourite co-op games for the PCE that they'd like to share? I think a few of my top picks personally would be Bonanza Bros, Cadash, Be Ball, and Dungeon Explorer I & II! But given how large the library is, I'm sure there must be other great co-op games people like to play with friends. Any suggestions?

Besides what has been mentioned. Monster Lair, Mystic formula , Demon World,  Mega twins, Splash lake, Buster Bros, Dragon Saber, Aero Blasters, Parisol Stars, Tecmo Super Soccer. I know there are others but these were the 1st that came to mind.

Some of my favorite games that include multiplayer are ones I never got to play until I no longer had anyone willing to try them with me.

So these are the only co-op games I can remember enjoying with others:

Dungeon Explorer
Dungeon Explorer II
Monster Lair -probably the most fun
Aeroblasters

It's too bad Tecmo Super Soccer is limited to two players (From what I read anyways). Seems like an ideal game for 4~5 player party!

I picked up Downtown Nekketsu Koshinkyoki Soreyuke Daiundokai (the blue CD case one) on a lark a few years ago, and it seems to be fun with 4 players (sadly, I've never had the pleasure of three friends to play along with). It's not so much co-op, but you do all play the foot race together rather than a sports versus game.

Downtown Nekketsu Koshinkyoki Soreyuke Daiundokai is really fun!

Yes, tecmo Super soccer is just 2 player and not co op. My mistake. I was mixing it up with J-LEAGUE TREMENDOUS SOCCER '94 which is up to 4 player.

I've played Double Dungeons co-op a few times and it's been fun. The first dungeon is small enough that we can both eventually find the boss together.

In addition to what has already been listed....

I have to say, in the last few months I have had a lot of fun playing HORROR STORY co-op. Prior to this, I had only played this game solo.

My ten-year old daughter is the only person who is willing to play this game with me, and the game has a lot of creative stuff going on (for a "run-n-gun", anyway... GRAB A BALLOON and float-steer your way to safety... in a run-n-gun!)

I have no fucking clue why I said Riot Zone. Lol. I never once played it co-op and there is no co-op.  :-k
