NES-style controller on Amiga: What was the name?

When I played Barbarian as a kid we always pulled out NES style controllers. Only for this one game.

Not NES because it has the wrong connector. Any ideas?

Moved your post to a more appropriate forum (it was related to Barbarian but not really to the Barbarian+ thread) for the main topic and added at title.

Could have been pads from the Amstrad GX4000?

You are looking for the Amiga ActionPAD AM.... Its in this blog of mine so scroll down.
The PAD was made by Logic3.

I include my recent blog on the SNES so you can compare.

None of those I'm afraid. It was a regular console controller. Could only have been Nintendo or Sega. We would steal them from my friends annoying little brother [1] just to play Barbarian!

Found it. Of course it's the Sega Master System!

On a related note I received 3m of 9 core cable today which I plan to use to convert a cheapo SNES style controller for use in a C64/Amiga.

[1] 'Annoying little brother' & myself went to Amiga32 last year and had a great time

I do use one of those on my Amiga from time to time, but I'm not a fan of joypads in general...
Glad you got it!
