List of games with hotseat multiplayer

From The FunKey Wiki
Other languages:
English • ‎français

This article lists any games playable on the FunKey S that support hotseat multiplayer. These include both freeware and commercial games, with the former having linked-to download pages and the latter having linked-to Wikipedia articles, where applicable. Due to the their differing control methods, pass-and-play and simultaneous hotseat multiplayer games are split into two lists, with the former having turn-based multiplayer modes where the controller is passed around and the latter having real-time multiplayer modes where the controller is shared among participants. Games without an implemented hotseat multiplayer mode are not listed as the FunKey S does not support the link cables and additional controllers required for other forms of multiplayer gameplay.

Inclusion criteria[edit | edit source]

To ensure the accuracy of these lists as much as possible, a number of inclusion criteria are being used:

  • Games must have at least one section, minigame, or mode designed to be played by two or more players synchronously or asynchronously using one controller on one console. Games without any intended form of multiplayer or with a multiplayer mode that requires two or more controllers and/or consoles cannot be included.
  • Games must be in English or playable without understanding another language. This criteria is used to ensure that the multiplayer features of a game can be ascertained during the research process.

While the editors have attempted to make these lists as comprehensive as possible, there are likely several games that may need to be removed or added based on the above criteria. If you know of any such games, feel free to modify the lists yourself or inform the wiki admin.

List contents[edit | edit source]

The games on this page are divided into pass-and-play and simultaneous lists based on whether their multiplayer mode(s) can be played asynchronously or synchronously, respectively. For the ease of navigation, the games within the pass-and-play list are further subdivided based on theme (currently game shows, sports, strategy, or tabletop). Each entry on one of the lists has a game's name, a link to an its Wikipedia article (in the case of licensed games) or download page (in the case of homebrew games), release type (licensed, unlicensed, or homebrew), native system(s), and maximum player count. Game Boy Advance games that are highlighted in yellow are not emulated accurately in the default FunKey S GBA emulator, so should be played with an alternate emulator instead.

This article currently lists 265 games, with 12 of these being simultaneous and 253 being pass-and-play. Of the pass-and-play games, 29 are arcade games, 12 are game show games, 17 are pinball games, 7 are platformer games, 111 are sports games, 13 are strategy games, and 64 are tabletop games. When taking into account multiple platform variants of each game there are 348 games in total, divided into the following categories:

NES         17
Game Gear     21
Master System  11
SNES          24
