The Mini Monster Retro Gaming Joystick Kit from Monster Joysticks is designed to offer the best quality joystick experience for your retro computers and consoles.
The shell has been laser cut from high quality HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) which results in an extremely durable and reliable casing. The BASIC joystick and buttons have been selected by us to offer the best arcade action at a lower price point.
Designed to be fully reversible for left and right handed players*, it also features a toggle switch to allow players to map up on the joystick to the 2nd button for 1 button games that use up to jump.
Assembly of the kit is easy and only requires a screwdriver, no soldering required. Full assembly instructions can be found here.
*Please Note: When the top panel is reversed the matt side of the HIPS is exposed.
1Up to button mapping compatibility can vary on C64C models

Joystick kit arrived less than 24 hours after order. Easy to put together with clear instructions. Works amazingly well with my Amiga 1200 an absolute dream to use. I'd highly recommend these to anyone, very tempted to get one for my Raspberry Pi now!

If you're like me, you have found it hard to get hold of replacement joysticks for your classic computers like the C64 and Spectrum ZX.
Well look no longer as this is the ideal replacement for your collection, with the added bonus of changing the button layout to move jump (when it is attached to the up stick) to the second button with the flick of a switch. No longer will you mistime a jump trying to hit right and up at the same time (It's great for playing Jetpac on the Spectrum I've found)
It's easy to put together and has a long lead so you can sit back and enjoy your gaming without having to sit on top of your TV.
