gathered the Load Error Teams together for the event.
But what is this retro gaming challenge ?
Its an event that gives the opportunity for younger kinds to learn and challenge in oldschool 
games from various platforms like Amiga , PSX , Xbox Classic , and many more.

Testing the Monster Joystick on Amiga games

Its good for younger kids to learn the roots of gaming and this event was created
for this purpose. Games you play today on PS4 and Switch have history 
on older gaming from home computers and micros and 1st gen consoles.

The 1st event was made with commodore Amiga computers. Players have the support 
from team members of Retrounboxers and Retroshowcase.com to give them all the info
and hints to play the game Project-X and beat the highest score to win the prizes.

The weapons of choice for the gamers were the classics Tomahawk and CMS joysticks
but there were also some new ones like The Greek Stick joystick from Dinohatzi 
and the Deluxe mini monster from Monsterjoysticks.com
All joysticks performed well and accurate for the challenge.
