Twin stick support - HTML version only

A minor update to add twin-stick controller movement (and trigger firing) to the HTML version. Playing with a game controller is a lot more feasible now.

Note: I'd love to add the same control to the downloadable versions, but it's not currently possible with Pico-8.

Already commented on the main game page, but I'm curious if you tweaked this later. I was able to get a steam deck analog stick mapped to the mouse in Pico-8 and was strafing and twin-sticking in no time. Clearly not as easy for setups less-tweakable than the SD, but still fun.

I don't have a steam deck, but I do have a steam controller, and yeah it's crazy configurable, so mapping it to mouse and ESDF is the best way to get analog turning (although I prefer using the touch pad/accelerometer).

I made this update when I bought a USB controller for my Android phone. It can't do mouse input but acts like a standard game controller. So this gives me twin stick support on a hand-held device (unfortunately I can't get a Steam Deck here in New Zealand).

Of course the ideal setup would be to map the left stick to the Pico-8 mouse input, then you'd get analogue turning on a regular game controller. Should be possible, but I couldn't figure out the JavaScript to make it work.
