I pulled out my never-used NOS TAC-2 because my Retrogameboyz game pad has started to malfunction after a few years of use. I took it apart and cleaned all of the contacts but I think I'm going to have to send it back for a deeper repair.
My son and I did our best to defeat the alien enemies - but holy smoke. What a hard game!
After my thumb cramps (didn't take long) I realized I should have pulled out my Monster Joystick.
That'll be for tonight. =)
