Arcade games with trigger joysticks


Recommended Posts

Holy shit...

I just had a thought...

 

Because of the DB9 pinout... you could totally use an old C64/Atari 2600 Quickshot stick for Space Harrier games on Sega Master System/Sega Genesis/... and maybe the 32X version... I assume that version only needs one button as well!

 

Anybody here have one to sell/trade? Message me or it's eBay within 48 hours!

And holy moley shit....

 

While googling that image I found something even more bad-ass... anyone see one of THESE anywhere??? I never have!!!

Satan's Hollow (although I think that didn't have the trigger?)

 

Yes.. you shot with the trigger, while the button was for the shield.

 

Other Bally/Midway games had that joytick style.. e.g. Solar Fox, although I forget if you could fire with the joystick in that game as well.

I used to have both (in the 80s), although my version of the bottom one had an LCD timer/clock in the "display".

Assault. Hm, that I may have to consider. I never tried putting the two sticks together, but there's no reason why it wouldn't work, right? (They're just not the same size or model is all.)

 

One of the sticks I've got actually lets you rotate it, vaguely similar to the rotary sticks in military shooters like Ikari Warriors. It doesn't really work that well for those games, but it's got to be of some use in something, right?
