I believe I have a clone of that one, and it has all the responsivity, feel and sensitivity of a cheap TV game.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

Can't speak to the quality of that one, but it does look like the optimal style for Oddworld: https://strategywiki.org/wiki/Oddworld:_Abe%2 … ddysee/Controls

Be aware that under DOS you will only have access to 4 buttons (unless a game has specific support for the controller, such as with the Gravis Gamepad Pro). In Win9x you may be able to configure it as a custom controller (I can't remember how many buttons that allows, but I suspect it's still only 4). Or you will need drivers to unlock all functionality.

If you're running Win98 I recommend just getting a Sony DS4. It's fully supported out of the box, and you can pair it with Xpadder JoyToKey to play anything.

You will get full functions in Win95 with this: http://vogonsdrivers.com/getfile.php?fileid=1391&menustate=0

But make sure you look into what the game itself supports too.
