At first glance this made me rather sad. Two classics brutally butchered for the sake of an ugly emulator.

The Famicom controller had those cool buttons, reminiscent of Palma Violets and was reputedly 20% smaller than the UK / US versions as Japanese people had smaller hands. I could google that for confirmation but won’t as the fact is from the day and I won’t let the truth spoil it!
