What's the issue with my stock joysticks (or is it the console) if they work perfectly with Berzerk, but they won't go down while playing Blueprint? 

 

Update: I went back and read advice from before, I need to adjust the analog adjustment pot. TZ101 has a nice write-up. I'll do this. Thanks

different games were written with different ranges of the control pots to be read. Apparently, there wasn't a "standard" for this.

For me, some games demand the comfort and precision of the Wico. After numerous failed attempts with the CX-52, I’ve decided Berzerk is one of those games. 
 

9,050 with the -1 Wico penalty

I find my best method of playing this one, is to see how many robots I can get to kill themselves.

This game is just plain hard :-D

 

Fantastic classic arcade behind-kicker, tho.

April closes with DamonicFury bagging another convincing win over the field. 😎 This is seriously one of the toughest titles we have on 5200. Thanks to all who played and keep this little history section alive and well. I'll start on our next game soon. :)
