Wait a minute. Did you just say the side buttons on the Inty II are easier to press than the usual Inty controller on a 2609??? Dude I recently got an Inty II and the side buttons on those controllers are like pushing against CEMENT!!!!! They don't move AT ALL!!! I can't even push them in once... I'd have to be Lou Friggin Ferigno to move them even once. Maybe it's just this one set I have, but they are HORRIBLE!!!! I switched them out for Flashback controllers....... HUZZAH!!!!! :P 

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not saying they're good controllers, but the side buttons seem to work a bit like the inty 2 number pad in that they don't have any give but they also don't need to be pressed hard or even 'pushed in' per se. They feel like they respond to simple pressure. They don't offer any user feedback - no nice click feeling to let you know you fired - but easier to hold down for long periods of time. Not that useful for most games but actually helpful for Worm Whomper!

Of course I only know how my inty 2 controller seems to respond. Can't speak to how yours works if course! :)

I should also say that I don't have an intellivision 1 but rather an inty 2 that I found some Sears super video arcade controllers for. I definitely prefer the Sears controllers for every other game I have played!

INTV 2 controllers were good (side buttons that is) in the early 80s when the console was first released, but yes they DID NOT AGE WELL. I agree with Thor or Incredible Hulk levels of grip to push them in 2022 :)

My Worm Whomper Update: Did a few thousand points more. Seems to be it for me. I had a nice run going in this game and then a white moth laid an egg right smack in front of my very last corn stalk.... 🙄👎

Worm Whomper is a great game,and it has the strafing similarities while shooting like Dreadnaught Factor does,which is another great game,also by Activision. 

Both Intellivision classics!.

 

Ok,that's my last game! 👍

Recorded this one, and I plan to post it on Twin Galaxies. Beats the current World Record by almost 300k.
