  1. Hi Chaps, Great podcast about Pengo, but, I’m sorry but I have to comment on something you mentioned regarding your experience with TRON. The joystick should not strictly be 8 way but 4 way with a hard push for the diagonals. This is mainly due to the fact that the light cycles game is impossible to play with a standard 8 way joystick as you find the light bikes start doing very odd diagonal zig-zag movements on turns and totally ruining the game. The tanks and MCP cone games don’t need diagonal movements leaving just the i/o tower game which I believe a hard push diagonal should give you the direction you need, but I find I can play fine without.
    Cheers,
    Andrew
