BolliStick is a third-party controller released in the early 1990s by Cheetah. Variants were made for both the Sega Master System and Sega Mega Drive

The BolliStick is a small controller with four buttons and unusually, a D-Pad tilted at an angle. The Mega Drive version makes use of all four buttons for A, B, C and  START , while the Master System version devotes the bottom two buttons for 1 and 2 (labeled A and B), and the top two buttons for turbo controls. BolliSticks were released for other consoles too, such as the NES, but aside from some plug and labelling changes, the controller is mostly identical across all platforms.
