Nice game! How do you intend to substitute the paddles onm emulation? Congratulations for your initiative!

You just use the left and right buttons on your keyboard.

Ok, but when you use the paddle it's possible to control the speed of the basket, in advanced stages this is essential to colect all the bombs. I was thinking about that the use of the mouse would be a nice choice to substitute the original interface

Games like this, for example, Arkanoid (MAME), use the mouse on emulation. Just a sugestion!

Ralibretro controls feature is limited. I never played the game on the 2600, not sure how its ment to handle. Im not sure if it possible to use the mouse on ralibretro.

I have no control over how the game emulates. I will be releasing the set tonight after I finished the achievement pictures. If people arent getting to the later levels I might have to correct them

Ok, I understand. I'm talking about the paddle because I'm a fan of this game and I usually play it on my original console. The ideia to bring it on RA is wonderful, but I realized about the keybord's limitation. I intend to test your set soon.

Man that's tough because it feels like it's very "sticky" when playing with a controller.
