CD32 and joystick. What can I get?

Hi kids. I have a friend who has a need to use a joystick, like the Amiga/C=64 style fro his etrogaming. He had a stroke a few years back and cannot use a joypad too well. But he has no issues with joysticks. he regularly plays PS3 and Xbox 360 games with no problem.

Is there a way to connect a Amiga/C=64 joystick to his CD32? I burned him the wonderful compilations and he is raring to get back to Amiga games. We all know Amiga games are MUCH better than that soulless PS3 and XBox 360 crap.

If not, can he order or get a modded PSX or Logitech PC or other joystcik/analog joypad to work?

Thanks for the responses guys. This guy you are helping is a legend: he supplied some crackers/release groups with about a hundred or so C=64 games for distribution back in the days. He sent the disks he purchased to the UK and someone many of us are familiar with (not from this forum) cracked/distributed them.

It'll work with 2 buttons if the game supports standard 2 button sticks, but the second button does not work as the blue button (just like any 2 button pad on the Amiga).

It's damn annoying!

Yeah. Luckily there aren't THAT many games which use only the red and blue buttons alone, if they do support only 2 buttons the normally allow for standard 2 button pads/sticks. Otherwise you need the full on CD32 pad anyway.
