Local Multiplayer Fun On Pc (with Gamepad Support)

22 July 2008 - 12:21 PM

so here we go...have you got one or more gamepads and want to play some good games, which support the controllers, with your friends? then here is a list of 4 recommended freeware games with gamepad support:
(also i have added a list of good games that are fun and have affordable prices below the freeware games section...a few of them are older so you have to search for them maybe in a bargain shop with luck)

super mario war and multihero are playable with 4 gamepads....little fighter supports 2 player with gamepads and 2 on keyboard...streets of rage remake seems to work only with 1 player on gamepad and 1 player on keyboard, maybe playable with 2 gamepads but i couldnt figure it out how...

Super Mario War 1.8
(about 14 MB)
[1-4 player]

its a multiplayer death match stomping fun game with lots and lots of modes and great playability and gameplay...the new version 1.8 compared to 1.7 offers new features for example the world map like in smb3 and many characters to choose from.

it would be totally awesome if the developers integrate lan and internet game...currently its only playable on one pc, with bots or with friends.

there are 4 match types:

single game
tournament
tour
world (offers a map like in super mario bros 3)

here are the 21 game modes:

classic
frag limit
time limit
jail
coin collection
stomp
yoshis eggs
capture the flag
chicken
tag
star
domination
king of the hill
race
owned
frenzy
survival
greed
health
card collection
phanto

check out the well done readme that comes along with the game which describes the game modes etc.
