Built like a jet fighter joystick, the Video Command gives you ultimate control over your on-screen counterpart, helping to improve your scores. This is basically the Atari 2600 version of the Fairchild Channel F controller. It has a single grooved shaft topped with a triangular shaped handle. This handle doubles as a joystick and fire button. The jovstick's tapered grip is held in the hand, not placed on a table. Zircon provided a booklet entitled "The Power to Win" with tips on using the stick to best advantage with different types of games.
