As far as ports go, Atari 7800 is definitely one of the better home versions of Robotron 2084 and even supports using two joysticks.

The PS1 port of Robotron is excellent (available on the first Arcade's Greatest Hits: Midway Collection 1).

Gotta jump in here and echo the Robotron: 2084 suggestion, it really deserves it's reputation.

Truth. I am dog shit at it, but it is one of those rare cases where the original is still pretty much king.

I’m currently working on setting up my gear for some twitch streaming, and Robotron is going to be my first stream (from an original cabinet). Thinking about doing a 10-million run, that’s a good 2.5-3 hours...

Pasky recommended Ruiner on twitter a while back. Picked it up but haven't had a chance to play it yet.

It's on sale on GOG for $4.99 right now --> https://www.gog.com/game/ruiner

Ah yeah, I gotta get back to Ruiner at some point. Definitely pretty different from your standard twin stick fare, but with a unique gameplay style that makes clearing rooms pretty satisfying.

Well if we can stretch the definition of twin stick to include Ruiner, I have to recommend Synthetik: Legion Rising.

Here's a great video review.

I'd watch that if I had time. I'd like to go for 10 mil some day, but first I gotta work on getting to 5 mil. :roll:

Cool! Follow me on my twitch account so you can get an update when I stream. My twitch account handle is Gillaxian. (I don’t use opt2not for twitch). 8)

Good to know, there was an opt2not twitch with an R-Type pic and I thought that was you.

Yeah that’s me too, but I won’t be using that account to stream.
