    Hi guys,

    I'm seeking for simple and fun 2 player games that can easily be played with 2 buttons (ex: pong).

    Thanks in advance!

    More than 2 buttons, but lego star wars is good game.

    Thanks for the suggestion. However keep in mind that my goal is to port the game to be used with a simple color recognition system. For example: a room of people split in half where one half has cards of a certain color and the other half cards of another color.

    Huh? Hard to keep in mind if it is not initially told. ;) And how would those people with one colored card play pong? If I recall properly pong does not even use a button, but a knob to move the paddle. Now they could simply throw their cards at each other and see who gets the most hits. First Impression- boring! :)

    Easy, The density of the colors control the pad movement. For example if there are more red cards up the pad moves to the right, if there are more blue cards up then the pad moves to the left.

    Doesn't that demand that your audience is some sort of hive-mind? Pong is surely far too fast for that to work at all?

    I would think for something this specialised you'd want to make your own minigames in something like Processing or even (dare I say it) flash.

    Yes, that is why it's so fun, because it requires the coordination between many people. Pong is already implemented and tested and it works great. But I would like to implement another game.
