Cursor Joystick is part of the category Input Devices.
A Cursor Joystick is a style of joystick for the ZX Spectrum where the interface board maps the joystick movements and button to the cursor keys on the ZX Spectrum keyboard (5-8 for movement, and 0 for fire). Two companies, Protek and AGF, produced interface boards for this style of joystick. One of the main advantages was the ability to use a joystick for games which did not directly support one; if the game either used the cursor keys or supported the ability to customize the keys used then players could use a cursor joystick.
