Which games make full use of the 5200 number pad?

Recommended Posts

I don't know about using every key on the pad but Miner 2049, Bounty Bob strike Back and Spy Hunter all use several buttons on the keypad. Ive heard that the keypad can be used as directional keys in frogger but I've never tried it.

Star Raiders, Baseball

 

Football uses about half. The keypad is critical to gameplay in Countermeasure (the top three keys).

 

Defender uses any keypad key for Hyperspace. Frogger uses 2, 4, 6, 8 for an alternate control scheme.

Maintenance! #1 game on the system.

 

 

I'm stuck at the part where you get the analog stick to register all directions.

Missile Command uses all keys to select levels, one or two player and so on...

That is what I always use to test a number pad.

I do the same thing. :-). It is also an excellent game for fully testing the joystick. Unfortunately, MC makes no use of the second fire button, so I use another cart (Moon Patrol) to test it.

I always cheat on this game and buy a Wico Command Control instead. :D

I believe Looney Tunes Hotel uses all number keys for level selection, as well as the two red fire buttons. I use it quite often to test controller response :)
