Looks good. Black Widow is a really fun game. Not sure I could play it without twin stick control though.

In one player mode the game support dual joysticks. Just connect your second joystick/joypad to the second control port. You will walk with the joystick in control port one, and fire in the different directions with the joystick in the second control port.

Yes it does!  Now we just need some sort of holder for two Jaguar controllers to be able to use both at the same time.  I wonder if a spinner controller for firing might work if put on port 2.

Get a couple of velcro straps and tie one controller to each of your legs just above the knee lol.
