Be interested to know how you think it plays. I heard bad things about the controls. But at least Chips Challenge is on it. Wonderful puzzle game! :relaxed:

The first “game” I’ve chosen from the menu is this one: the BASIC :joy:


#94

I’ve played California games and impossible mission. The joystick is really uncomfortable, with the fire buttons placed on the base instead of on top of the lever. Plus, there are no micro-switches. It’s a special joystick, it has four little buttons to call a built-in menu (to save/ load games or display a virtual keyboard).

Well that is what the Competition Pro was like, which I guess was the most iconic one so they used that.

We mostly used the Quickshot Pro Turbo though, less flexibable but way better grip.

I played Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken with this thing! :point_up:


#96

Exactly, I had that one, too!


#97

What’s great about this one is that there is support (like firmware upgrades) and you can actually get other games on it (unlike all those other mini-console cash grabs :money_with_wings:).

I’m expecting to see a screenshot of a particular game soon!

Here you find a description of what flags to use in filenames (e.g. some games need the joystick in port 1), or the syntax of CJM files (you can map specific keys to joystick buttons for instance):

I’ve downloaded a game pack called “Ransoms pack” with a bunch of games, including Zak, MM and… this one :grin:

I haven’t played any Ghostbusters game but I have heard from a lot of different versions via AVGN.
And this looks like very like the dreadful NES version! How is it?
