Playing online games alone is always nice, but with a friend is much better! 2-player games are perfect for spending time with friends or dear ones and challenging your skills together.
They can also take different forms. In some 2-player games, you must work as partners to defeat all the enemies or to solve the puzzling obstacles. Fireboy and Watergirl 1: Forest Temple is a good example of such a game. The two friends must help each other in order to open paths and activate lifts to climb up the map to the doors that lead them to the next level.
In other 2-player games, your friendship takes the shape of a friendly competition that will showcase who has the best skills. A classic game of such type is Master Chess, but there are many more. If you two are into cars and speed, a racing game such as Grand Extreme Racing or Night City Racing might be what you are looking for.
If you enjoy a more “deadly” competition, why not try a battle game? You can try to shoot each other in Stickman Temple Duel, for example, or try something more primitive and swing swords and fists alike in a game of Stick Warrior Hero Battle.
These are just a few examples of the many options that you can find in this category of 2-player games. Explore it and have fun challenging your friends or working together for the pleasure of a joint victory!
How to play 2-player games
There are many types of 2-player games, each with its own goal, rules, gameplay, and controls. You can find all the necessary information either within the game before the challenge starts or in the text box below the game screen.
That being said, most 2-player games are played on one single keyboard. Traditionally, one player takes the right side of the keyboard and the direction keys while the other player plays on the left with the WASD keys combination.
However, some may require the use of the mouse for some functions while others discard the keyboard altogether and require only a touchscreen or the mouse.
