Some of the AA Type-ins I remember being MODE 2 are


* Life from AA44 (May 1989)





* NIM II from AA51 (Dec 1989)





* Warzone AA68 (May 1991)





While Warzone has MODE 2 Gameplay screen, the Main Menu is MODE 1. Just recently I updated this game since the original was 6128 only, so it now works on 464 too, though hate to say haven't corrected it for 664.
* Using the old Amstrad Languages :D   * with the Firmware :P
* I also like to problem solve code in BASIC :)   * And type-in Type-Ins! :D

I remember Warzone, I quite enjoyed it, for a type-in.

This query on CPC-Power reveals all programs in mode 2, but there are almost no games: https://www.cpc-power.com/index.php?page=database&lemot=MODE2%20inside


You can add the french game Biat to the list of mode 2 games.
