so Xbox 360 made a joystick in 2007-2010, looked like a white atari controller. Find this and use it.

I have no idea how many quarters I plowed into these games in the 80's, but it was probably enough that if I had purchased Apple stock instead of playing Sinistar, Spy Hunter, Wizard of Wor, and Gauntlet I would be retired by now.

If you have a similar background then you will love this assortment of games. All the Midway favorites are here.

Most games suffer from the constraints of the Xbox 360 controller so that's really the only downside to the collection.

Crank up the J. Giles Band, grab a TAB, and enjoy.

A thorough, nostalgic collection of some of the greatest titles in arcade history. Highlights include Super Sprint, APB, Smash TV, Toobin' and Joust. The only thing that marred an otherwise perfect port was poor controls, most notably in APB and Super Sprint. The achievements are easily obtained by any old school arcade aficionado. Not even a pocket full of tokens would have given you this much access to these classics in their heyday.
