No, I do not.
Most of the code was to do with the tricky character set manipulation, and
not relevant here.  The actual joystick and control system (called the "reel
system" in-house) was a simple bytecode interpreter with vectors for
joystick effects which changed based upon the state of the player/opponent.
Its simple once you understand it, but a very powerful system.
