It will work on basically any game.  But if you can find games specifically designed for the "Trak-Ball" mode (there should be a switch on the bottom), it gets really good.  Examples:  8-bit Missile Command.  Or the centipede/millipede hacks for 2600.

I picked this beautiful specimen up today? Will this work with centipede and such?

You would have to use these hacks to use the trakball:

Load them onto your Harmony cart and use the CX-22 hacked game and you should be good to go!

I have the other version. The CX80 version. That one I believe works better with the Atari 8 bit computer games. It works wonders with Activision Decathlon though. I get around 12,000 for my score with it.

Oh man, I never thought of doing that!  You just roll it one way really fast?
