64JPX – JoyPad Expander

for Atari and Commodore Systems 64JPX is a small interface designed to rejuvenise the way with which you play your favourite games on the Commodore or Atari system.

Whilst joysticks were all the range in the ‘70s and ‘80s, the 1990’s saw a move towards joypad style controllers with more buttons and ergonomic feel. 64JPY not only allows you to safely connect Sega Genesis/MegaDrive 3 and 6 button controllers to your retro system, it enhances game play with a number of on-the-fly selectable play modes.

64JPX will give your favourite old games a new lease of life, and may actually make you play better!

Note: an SNES version of 64JPX is also under development.
