My humble suggestion is that you take advantage of 6 of the positions on
the d-pad. That is:
Just to give Matt a hard time...
Forget it. If you don't have an actual paddle controller, it's a
waste. Unless someone can wire up an adapter, please don't include
KABOOM!, Video Olympics, Warlords, Breakout, or what have you. The people
who have never played these would never appreciate these games like they
should. There's nothing more fun than playing KABOOM! with a thumb and
forefinger only... the control a paddle gives ya can't even be approximated
with the stock GBA controls.
Seems like it would be awful easy to hack up an adapter cable for paddles
through the link port though.
If Activision's on the table, add:
* Laser Attack
* Keystone Kapers
* River Raid
* and of course Pitfall, though that might be tough.
And again, I'd love to see Chase the Chuckwagon as a prize and the idea for
Crazy Climber is another great one.
Most any arcade adaptation would be good stuff, though I was hesitant to
add them before.
* Space Invaders (great 2 pl keeps this tops)
* Missile Command
* Ms. Pac-Man
If you pull this off, I'll be the first in line. Good luck.
