Hey all,

 

I recently got a Wico Trackball for the my TI and I was wondering what games are good for it.

 

After doing a quick google search it doesn't seem like many people use it or at least write posts about it.  

 

I've only got to games at my house (I'm on vacation right now): TI Invaders and Parsec.  

 

I thought TI Invaders would be awful with the ball, but it actually makes the game shockingly more accurate (at least compared to the default controllers)

 

I figured that Parsec would be amazing with the trackball given the full 2 dimensional movement (x direction and y direction) but it really isn't good.  I can't move up and down fast enough in that game to dodge enemy fire.  

 

Any suggestions?  I know centipede would be really fun, but apparently its pretty rare.

The Wico Trackball is best when it matches the TI's color scheme...   :)
