Edladdin Controllers

Two Controllers in One = Twice the Fun! The Super Twin 78 squeezes two complete Super 78 Arcade Controllers into one 14" aluminum enclosure for independent Player 1 and Player 2 gameplay on the Atari 2600, Atari 7800, and all of the 8-Bit home computers, as well as all the game consoles compatible with the classic Atari CX-40 joystick. Controls include a pair of authentic Sanwa™ JLF-TP-8YT ball-top joysticks with octagonal restrictor plates, each flanked by an A-B pair of Suzo-Happ arcade pushbuttons, and each served by a separate 5'6" (1.6m) factory-molded game cord. Because one set of controls is oriented to the left and the other to the right, you effectively have an ambidextrous controller during one player games - just select the control set that best fits that gameplay.

Super Twin 78 - Angled Button Layout

Cozy Co-op and Head-to-Head. The Super Twin 78 doubles the fun on the same long list of Atari 2600 and 7800 classics served by the single-player Super 78. Especially fun is cozy cooperative and/or versus gameplay on Atari 7800 games like Asteroids, Ballblazer, Centipede, Dark Chambers, Joust, and Hat Trick, as well as head-to-head Atari 2600 games like Combat, Outlaw, and Space War, or the original head-to-head fighter - Activision's Boxing.

Super Twin 78 - Vertical Button Layout

Let's play Robotron 2084! The Super Twin 78 was really designed with one game in mind - the Atari 7800 port of the all-time-great Williams classic Robotron 2084. Here the Super Twin 78 delivers two-joystick running and gunning that is fluid and intuitive, just like the arcade masterpiece. Do your part to smash the robot uprising with a Super Twin 78!

Super Twin 78

Easy to Play. Super Twin 78s are built in an 8" x 14" sloped aluminum housing that is stable on the table or happy in your lap, with the joystick and classic arcade fire buttons positioned for a natural wrist position. Under the hood, all harness connections are soldered and shrink wrapped for maximum durability. The result is a controller to last a lifetime with the ability to replace joystick and pushbutton microswitches if they ever wear out. Cord length is approximately 5'6" (1.6m).

It took a very long time to travel from the States to my adopted home of Australia but my wife and I LOVE the Super Twin!
90% of the time I play solo and the button and stick response has literary doubled some of my high scores. Whether you need a delicate tap or stick-crunching about-face, it's a joy to use. I keep my Twin plugged into both the P1 and P2 ports unless paddling - I wish it had a paddle on each end.
My favourite gaming, of course, is when my lttle wife takes over P1 (it's more comfortable and I'm an old romantic) to play her favourite blue ostrich and since we got "Wizard Of Wor Arcade" that's her new favourite.
A few notes you hear. The casing, though very strong and well crafted is almost empty. I have lined the interior to remove the "hollow" sound when depressing the buttons. Speakin of buttons BE VERY SPECIFIC about button placement because the design was nearly changed on me to a P2 lefty!
And if you're anything like me, and want to keep a clean, utilitarian design, the Edladdin sticker on the top peals off without leaving marks. The bottom, sides and back are light blue but the side decals also peel off well. A 50mm wide strip of aluminium tape gives it a matching 7800 design element.
If you live in Amerika, you can afford this!

This is a solid arcade quality joystick for the 2600 and 7800. Really love the metal case and attention to detail. Being able to customize the button colors/layout and ball colors is a really neat feature. This is an heirloom piece. Keeping it for a looooong time. Beautiful work! Happy to add pictures of mine :)

I wanted a professionally-built arcade-quality joystick for my Atari systems (2600, 8-bits, 7800), and jumped on the SuperTwin when I first saw it announced. This is required equipment for a good game of Robotron, and it also makes for great two-player games like Mario Bros. and Joust, on all three systems. I can't recommend it highly enough!

The Super Twin is probably the most beautiful controller I've ever seen, both visually and operationally. Wow. It's a joy and an honor to own one of these suckers. Heck, even had a good Donkey Kong PK game on one of these, and it's an 8-way controller!

Save your money or use PayPal Credit and pay it off eventually before the interest kicks in: you won't regret it. In fact, you'll regret NOT buying one or going into debt for one!

This controller kicks booty! Not only can you play Robotron properly on the 7800, but there are two button games for the 2600 like Stargate that this controller can be used for. I would advise asking to have the buttons oriented EAST-WEST instead of the default north-south layout.

The Edladdin Super Twin 78 really shines when paired with the 7800 port of Robotron 2084. The twin-stick action is so fluid, that it seems like the controller was made, side by side, with the game BITD. But that's not all; this controller is really two controllers in one, which allows for independent Player 1 and Player 2 gameplay. It also provides for an up close and personal experience on games that contain co-op or head-to-head gameplay. The build quality is excellent. The housing is made out of aluminum and the joysticks and buttons are responsive and arcade like. This controller is built to last and with the recent addition of 7800 T:ME Salvo to the AA Store, you now have two excellent twin-stick shooters to take advantage of.
What are you waiting for!
