Suncom Joy Sensor - Will it work on Amiga?

http://orph.atarinet.com/photos/main.php?g2_itemId=7292

Does anyone know will the device above work on Amiga? Does it work with all standard joystick controlled games or only in games that support this device? I would appreciate all the info about this thing on Amy.

I think it's very hard to play platform games or shoot'em-up but it's ok for Arkanoid and puzzle games.

Thanks a lot quick answer s2325 Some dude offered this thing for me and I was thinking to use it on Arkanoid -type of games that I like so much. I once had a paddle controller:

I had to give it away since none of the Amiga games supported these fun devices

I remeber playing Arkanoid in the arcade and I absolutely loved the spinning metal control wheel. There's no mouse in earth that would replace this type of controller in bat & ball games.

How do you control it? With your fingertip?

If so, it doesn't look to be as easy to use with precision, as with a true paddle controller (like those C64 devices), but it may get better with practice.

For playing Arkanoid you can also use Ultra Racer controller with PSX-USB adapter.

There is also PS 2 version but I don't know if it will work with PC.
