What games take advantage of Tandy's Analog Joystick controllers the most?

I am sure people are familiar with Tandy's analog joy stick controller:



I was wondering what games took advantage of the analog joystick the most? What games took advantage of the controls, the degree of travel, and adjusted movement based on the sticks position the best?


Many Tandy games I've seen treat the controller like an 8-way joystick instead of analog, so I was wondering if any games actually took advantage of the controller properly.

Polaris for the Colour Computer uses it very effectively.  It's a missile command clone and maps the joystick position directly to the screen giving the fast movement needed to launch effective counter-missile strikes.  It doesn't use the button but has you use 3 adjacent keys on the keyboard to pick which missile base to fire from.  Made it very much like the arcade.


Unless you're talking about the PC clone side of things and this doesn't count.
