About this deal

The original Master System controller really isn’t such a bad controller – it’s just not a fair fight by any stretch when compared to the Honey Bee. Just like the Arduino Leonardo, the pro micro can out of the box emulate a keyboard when importing the keyboard library. Personally, I have come to love the 2 button-only setup of the Master System, and have gotten quite used to just getting up when I need to pause a game. The only problem is that certain games will not work with this or other Genesis controllers (for example, Wonder Boy in Monster Land). Not having used the arcade joysticks, I cannot speak to how well they function for playing Master System games, but I was not entirely pleased with the original model controller nor a Sega Genesis controller.

To make sure it is really the cable that is at fault, you should use a multimeter in continuity mode, and measure between the end of the cable with the connector, and the respective points at the pcb:s. This is a combined switchless region and dual controller pause button mod kit for Sega Master System model 1. The buttons are well suited to rapid bashing and it's sturdy enough that only the most heavy handed would stand a chance to break it. While in some games, I found that the pad worked perfectly, but in others, my on-screen character didn’t consistently crouch/climb/move when/where I needed him to.The 1988 model has Super Hang On built in while the 1986 model has nothing (except for Snail of course). If this is something that bothers you, they do offer a custom 3D printed plate to cover them if you’d prefer. Compared to the NES Dog Bone and Turbografx-16 TurboPad, the Honey Bee is still behind a bit from a comfortability standpoint, yet it’s smoother edges still keep it ahead of both the original rectangular NES controller and the slightly less comfortable original Master System pad. All that I mean about the seal is that it’s not a product that seems like it’s not screwed down in all places, leaving small openings along the edge.

The controller shares similarities with the Nintendo Entertainment System controller, including a rectangular box shape, two buttons and a D-pad. There are Sega Master System controllers with wires coming out of the right side, reminiscent of the Japanese Famicom controllers, Sega Master System controllers with a joystick style thumbstick, and controllers with wires coming out of the top. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. The uninitiated wouldn’t even know and maybe be afraid to try the middle buttons if they already have what they need from the face buttons. I can’t believe how cheap this kit is either, because it’s clearly good quality, and made by someone who loves the retro gaming hobby.

The build-in turbo features are outstanding and convenient, and the D-pad works exactly as you need it to in video games – accurately. When I originally owned the Master System back in the day I used the control stick exclusively though, I still like to use it, I've just grown accustomed to pads. Here, I actually preferred the original Master System buttons, but that’s really only personal preference, because using buttons 1 and 2 works perfectly on either controller.

The main problem with the original controller is with the D-pad – it’s a flat pad rather than the more traditional ‘cross’ you find on D-pads of other older consoles.
