Super Twin 78 Arcade Controller
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.
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.
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!
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).
Your wish is our command! Customize your Super Twin 78 with a rainbow joystick ball and pushbutton colors, including the amazing Hard Candy Gemstone balls in red, blue, purple, yellow, green, and "smoke". You can also choose whether the buttons are aligned vertically or angled (but mostly horizontal) as shown in the photos above. Please make your selections above for joystick/button colors, as well as button orientation.

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!
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!
What are you waiting for!
