I thought I had seen it all with Kung Fu Master and the recent 2019 Galaga port.  Now we have Shadow of the Beast -- wow!

What a great homage to the Super Sprint arcade game!  Have you considered adding support for the Atari 2600 Driving Controller?  This controller is usable on any Commodore/Atari system (with a driver) and reproduces the steering input of the arcade game.  Its hard to get a hold of an original controller since it was made for only one Atari 2600 game (Indy 500), but they are easy to construct.

The controller uses a rotary encoder and sends a signal on pins 1,2 (up/down) as it rotates: (1,0), (1,1), (0,1), (0,0).  Tracking the order and frequency in which these signals show up gives you the direction and speed of rotation.

Happy to give more context on this as needed.  I have a video on my channel that shows the construction of a driving controller and how it works too.
