Super Nintendo Controllers

Manufactured by: Nintendo

Standard Controller - This is the controller that comes with the SNES, and can be purchased separately. These controllers are strictly vanilla; it is a controller with all the buttons, and that's it. No turbo fire or slow motion.

Manufactured by: InterAct

Super Pad - There doesnít appear to be anything special about these controllers.  They appear to be the same as the controller that comes with the Super Nintendo.  I guess itís just another way for the Nintendo Corp. to make money.

??? - There is not much that is noteworthy about this controller, except the fact that it is shaped just like an old style Genesis controller! It has the standard turbo/auto fire for the regular six buttons, and a slow mode function.

Manufactured by: Gamester

SN-6 - Exactly the same design as the original, but itís flimsier, with a shorter cord, and feels like its going to be squished in-between your hands any second with it creaking sounds. And no, itís not because it old...itís always like this

Manufactured by: Competition Pro

??? - This is one of the first of the un-official controllers released very near to the release date of SNES. When you get your SNES you will want a second controller for it, and you will probably get this one even though itís not as good as the official one, purely because itís much cheaper.

High Frequency Control Pad - This controller looks very similar to the official controller. I don't know if it's a flaw in my controller but the colors for the X & Y and A & B are reverse. The X & Y buttons should be light purple, while the A & B should be dark purple. Instead, it's reverse.

Supercon - Aside from the somewhat different shape of this controller, and the odd select and start buttons, there is not much to note. It is a standard vanilla controller.

Angler - Functionally identical to the ASCII Pad, this one is shaped slightly different than the standard controller; the round sides on the left and right are less rounded. What is unique about this controller is you can put a little "stick" into the center of the joypad.

ASCIIPAD - This is a great joypad, with regular fire/turbo/auto switches for A, B, X, Y, L and R buttons, and slow motion. I have one of these, and am very pleased with it. Slightly larger than the regular controller, but close, and the same shape, so it feels familiar. It looks and feels well build; this pup has been put through plenty of wear and tear, with no sign of any problems. The only drawback is that the cord is shorter than the standard SNES controller, and this can be a problem, depending on how far you play from the console. Otherwise, it is a quality joypad. Highly recommended.

Capcom Pad Soldier - This has to be one of the weirdest shaped controllers I have ever seen. I don't have one, but I can't imagine this pad is too comfortable. It was designed with fighting games in mind (no big shock since Capcom has released another controller designed specifically for its Street Fighter games). This controller was only released in Japan, however, a considerable number were imported to the US.

Conqueror 2 - For one, it isn't strictly a joystick; it is a little larger than the big joypad, and the joystick is much smaller. It is shaped like, well, it is hard to describe. The right hand side of the stick is square, which contours upwards to the upper part of the body, which was a raised circle. The bottom right forms a "rest", looks sort of like a big old style Genesis controller, except it has a special rubber pad you rested your wrist. This circle contained the four main buttons (A, B, X, Y), and five buttons around the circumference, which activated programmed moves the user puts in. The whole circle can rotate 270 degrees, for custom feel of the buttons; definitely unique. In between the small stick and the circle is 2 columns of three "long pill" shaped buttons, a switch, a series of tiny LED lights, and a twin pair of buttons. These were used to program moves into the stick, to use the turbo/auto fire, and the select and start buttons. Right above these buttons was the QuickShot logo, and between the top of the body, the stick and circle was a circle of four LEDS.

Invader 2 - It is of the standard SNES joypad design, with independent turbo and auto fire for all 6 buttons, as well as slow motion.

 

Manufactured by: Triax

Turbo Touch 360 - This control pad has a special directional control button; unlike other control pads with a raised directional control button, theirs is completely round, and the top is below the surface of the controller body. This, according the their ads, "eliminates 'numb thumb', has quick response, better control, true circular, easy diagonal and longer play and higher scores, guaranteed". It also has turbo fire on/off for the A, B, X and Y buttons.

SN ProPad 2 - The super Nintendo professional PAD! The SN pro PAD 2 offers altogether eight fire keys. The function sustained fire is individually adjustable for six keys. The sustained fires status is indicated over LEDS. A Slow Motion key makes a slowing possible of the play actions down. The two Shoulder Buttons are freely programmable in your function.

Energiser - This may be the SNES best controller ever! Unique design, extra mysterious buttons, auto, turbo, slow motion, and programmable features with an 8-way pad all in a shape that's be fitted for your hands...oh how we like like this controller, oh how we do! It reacts quicker, and on time than any another controllers known to man. No really! And the "S"pecial button can be programmed to press a sequence of buttons on one press.

V356 - This controller replaces the original Super Nintendo control pad with an 8-button easy-to-use controller. Simply plug this controller into your system and start playing all your favorite games again! This controller is contoured to fit comfortably in your hands. Features X/Y, A/B and L/R buttons for greater game control.

Nigal Mouncefill Fly Wheel - This uses weights to tell what way its up. Lean it forward for the equivalent of forwards on the D-Pad, lean it back for D-Pad back, left for left, and right for right...seems like a good idea. At first. Although it seems like a good idea, although the buttons are fine, the directions take roughly 3 seconds to respond, witch means its impossible to use!

Manufactured by: Honey Bee

SF-3 - The control pad is very flat and that doesn't feel good at all when you're playing with it. All the buttons have both turbo and auto-fire, that's good but the overall grade for this one is still only two stars due to it's bad quality. The buttons doesn't feel good at all.

Super NES Controller - The controller that placed the standards for the future consoles. Both Nintendo, Sony, Sega and Microsoft has borrowed things from this one. Sony stole the L, R, SELECT and START buttons, Sega stole the buttons color combination and Microsoft stole both the color combination and the SELECT and START buttons. Haven't they understood that the SELECT button is useless yet?!

 

Manufactured by: asciiware??

ASCII Fighter Pad - Note that the L and R buttons are to the right of the X and A buttons, and not on the top edge of the controller as with almost all other joypads. This has turbo/auto fire for every button, as well as slow motion.

Multi-system 6 - As you can see from the scan, this controller will work with both the Super NES and the Genesis. Pretty nifty, don't often see controllers at this price which are multi-system.

CyberPad - This is one of many programmable controllers available. It is also among the oddest shaped. The body is shaped into a fat "6" on its side, with the "tail" of the 6 facing the player. The tail of the 6 shaped body holds a switch and two buttons, which, I assume, are for programming moves into the joypad. Above the directional button are the select and start buttons, which are wider and shallower than those on a standard controller, and are labeled "start" and "select" on the buttons themselves. The main buttons (X, Y, A, B) are in about their usual location on most joypads, but with an additional button, used, I assume, to execute programmed moves. The L and R buttons are in their standard location, on the far side of the pad. This controller boasts 256 bits of memory for programmed moves, using a CMOS microcontroller. The programmed moves are saved, even when the power to the SNES deck is turned off. You can also switch button assignments on the pad, something which few controller offer! It also has the usual turbo fire (27 shots per second, as the ad claims), and slow motion. Like many SNES controllers, there is also a version available for the Genesis.

Gamemaster - It is black with white trim along the outline of the top of the controller. The controller has the usual button scheme, except the Start and Select buttons, with a "P" button, blueish green (for executing the move you program into it) to the left of the Y and B buttons. The directional controller and the B and A buttons are purple, and the Y and X buttons are greyish blue. There are three buttons along the top of the joypad to the left; accel, repeat, and auto, all the same color as the P button, used to program a move into the joypad. On the upper right of the joypad are the Select and Start buttons, the same color as the X and Y buttons. Next to them is the program-save switch, a dark green color similar to the P button, used to program a move into the joypad. It has the usual basic shape of a SNES joypad, but instead of the usual curves, they are a slightly rounded square shape. Finally, in the middle of the joypad, is the yellow and purple "Triton Toys" triangle shaped logo. As far as I know, only one move can be programmed into the pad, which would make it much less effective for fighting games, as opposed to other programmable controllers which can store many more.

TopFighter - This guy is 10.5" x9.5", is programmable (with LCD panel), has independent auto-fire for each button, and variable slow motion. Not only that, but only 20,000 were made, and each comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity, as well as a manual, and a patch to put on a jacket etc.

ASCII Grip - The A and B buttons are underneath in a trigger-like position, and the X and Y buttons are repeated on either side of the D-pad so that the controller can be used with either hand. Start is at the top, select at the bottom, and L and R are under the D-Pad. It's smaller and lighter-weight, but still very similar to the Playstation ASCII Grip (which was released in the US). Also, it is made all out of plastic, as opposed to the rubber grip that the PSX one has. As a side note, the controller also comes packaged with some kind of score sheet for Derby Stallion.

JS-306 Power Pad Tilt - Like the Turbo Touch 360, with a non-traditional directional button. The directional button is round instead of cross shaped, though the four corners on the top of the button are depressed, so as to form a cross shape on top, for a more accurate feel. This allows for true eight directional control. In additional to the usual operation of the controller, it allows for a special "tilt" control; you can hold the pad level with the ground, and rotate it left to right and front to back to move your character. It is good for racing games, but not games where accuracy is important. It should be noted that this controller has a dual setting (slow and fast) turbo fire only, it does not have auto-fire. The shape of the controller is that of two circles, the size of one of the ends of the standard SNES controller, with a triangle with the base side up, with a smaller circle on the end of the triangle instead of coming to a peak. The start and select buttons are in the middle of the small circle, with the directional button on the circle on the left and the four main buttons (A, B, X, Y) on the right circle, in the usual fashion. The triangle has four levels; the first has the slow motion and the turbo switch for both the L and R buttons, the second has two turbo buttons for the X and A buttons, the third has two turbo switches for the Y and B buttons, and the fourth level has a switch to turn the tilt on and off.
