Title: ARCADE 2 AND 4 WAY JOYSTICK FOR MAME PC.
Post by: emile73 on June 15, 2013, 05:51:28 PM
Hi

This is a review of a fantastic joystick i have just bought on ebay, it is made especially for mame etc and features 2 and 4 way movements needed for games like Pac-man, Donkey Kong, Mr.Do! , Burgertime etc

It is a faithful replica of the old days of arcade gaming.

Housed in a sturdy plastic box with suckers on the bottom and sporting a rather superb MR.DO! faceplate, this stick does everything you could want it to.
while not suitable for 8 way direction games it is amazing for the older titles. It's construction is very sturdy and feels "right" when using. It really feels like you are standing at the machine. Put simply if you have mame and a pc then you must have one of these!

The maker of this stick is a reliable and friendly person who is currently working on an eight way and 4 button version for later games.
At a price of £20.00 this 2 and 4 way version is a real bargain!
