Controls are very important for your enjoyment of the games and for your gaming performance. As soon as you pay attention to any particular game you will start to notice how well the control system works.


Also, many early arcade games had non-generic controls which you might want to replicate for that authentic feel. 


Due to lack of availability we have had to design and build several original style controls. Generally we have made some improvement to the performance or the functionality. Some are already on general sale, but others are exclusive to our arcade machine customers.
