Quick Facts

  • There is turbo support.
  • This is a clone of the Honcam.

Performance

There are two turbo functions you can utilize if you like to do rapid button presses by only holding a button once. As for the buttons, they feel rather cheap and housed in a plastic case with a spring inside. Furthermore, they do not seem responsive a lot of the times, so you have to press them hard most of the time. The joystick feels clunky as well. The arcade stick only feels durable if you buy it for casual use and play with it gently.

Hardware

The Lioncast team claims that this arcade stick is suitable for modding, but it does not seem to be quite the case. Sure, the arcade stick can be modded, but modding is not easy enough to advertise about it. The arcade stick itself has an overall plastic feel, which is not a positive thing, but it somehow manages to be stable despite that, probably because of the grips.

Appearance

The arcade stick has a pleasing minimalistic look whether you go for blue or red. However, there is not much going on, and oddly enough, it somewhat emits a casual aura that visually makes it seem not eligible for tournament play. It seems more like an accessory than a dependable arcade stick you can win tournaments with, and this is based strictly on the looks, although the performance and hardware support this theory as well.

Conclusion

Pros

  • Two turbo functions
  • Fairly satisfying look

Cons

  • Faulty equipment
  • Tougher modding
