Local and online multiplayer games for 2

This has probably been asked to death around here but what games are there that are fun for 2 players to play on local and/or online multiplayer? If Dungeon Hunter 2 went back down to a buck I'd pick it up since I heard that game was fun. But anyway, any genre really except the super casual/turn based games like words with friends and whatnot. No racing/FPS either.

Disc Drivin' is really good.

Also, if you're into strategy games, something like Starbase Orion might be good.

I was in love with Online sniper league for a time (still am). I wouldn't consider it for a first person shooter. There's LOTS of strategy included. I played it with my friend and we had good laughs but also lots of fights about it

It's a player vs player game and you play as a sniper and have to shoot the opponent. You basically send troops of agents to each other until the other cant shoot the agents anymore. Then, when all your agents attack his "boss" he gets revealed and you can shoot him. The same goes for you though. So there's lots of strategy and you need good timing (but also some skill).

Nothing with aiming like shooting lol, although the sniper game looks cool, might try it myself.

Downloaded disc drivin, will try that as well.

Are there any RPG/MMOs for more than 1 player that ISN'T from Gameloft?

OSL is free, so you've got nothing to lose.

So you're looking for MMORPGs? You can try:
- Pocket legends, Star legends, Dark legends and Arcane legends (all done by the same company)
- World of Midgard a.k.a Faction wars
- Armed heroes online
- Celtic heroes

Pocket Heroes

Ascension: Chronicles of the Godslayer is a great online card game for 2-4, Greed Corp is great as well.

I've tried most of the suggestions mentioned here. But quite a few I know she wouldn't play or be too interested in.

So far it's been Dungeon Hunter 3, Order & Chaos (though we haven't played this in a while, just seems like there's too much going on and camera panning to do on a phone, which is why I want something that has a fixed view or at least something simple enough to feel comfortable controlling on a small screen), and we will try Arcane Legends.

Any other recommendations? Good multiplayer word games we like as well. Been playing Bookworm Heroes and Letterpress lately. I personally play Writer Rumble as well.

So basically, word games, action (no shooting/aiming), and mmo/rpgs, unless you've got a great recommendation out of these genres.

Touch Hockey 2 by FlipSide5 is in my opinion the best two player game in the App Store. I play with my buddies on bluetooth almost every day. It's great when you only have two or three minutes and want to get in a quick game.

It's also iPhone 5 optimized, which is great!

I play that myself, but for this purpose, if we have a few minutes, we just stick to word games on one screen like Spell Tower. If it had online that'd be interesting though.

I'm really tempted to give Dungeon Hunter 2 a shot, but the reviews are saying there's no sound and whatnot on iphone 5/ios 6, can anyone confirm this? 99 cents I wouldn't mind but 6.99 is pretty pricey to take the risk.
