Competition Pro nowadays but I also still own 2 Quickshots. Quickshot was the way to go back then.

Who the fuck played Amiga with a joypad? Quick shot Python or GTFO.
Imma let you finish, but the TAC-2 is the best joystick of all time. It’s built like a tank, and infinitely repairable. All the QuickShot models were fragile, throwaway crap in comparison.

Off course but I didn't care that much as a kid. Killed and repaired many joysticks back then and was always happy when I had at least one or two fully working. ;)

My point was more along the lines of Amiga games were meant for joysticks, not joypads. I’ve never seen the stick you shared.

i have a tac 2 sitting next to my desk.
I see the point tho. almost no amiga games supported more than 1 button input. Tho some people map joystick-Up to a second button.

Would be cool if they made a mini monitor emulating the look of Commodore brand monitors. They should make such things just to play the mini consoles in general. Close that loop

Sorta excited for this, but £120 is a little bit too much to make my ‘instant purchase’ fingers twitch

Average list of games I would say. They should have covered some of the earlier games as well, like Firepower, Ports of Call, etc. I also would remove Zool and Titus the Fox and add Turrican and Elite, the Amiga version is still the best (except for the Archimedes port but that's way too rare to count).

I would have liked Defender of the Crown or some of the Ultima games. I loved Quest of the Avatar on the Amiga.
