Wireless Gaming Controller for iDevices and Android, iCADE 8-Bitty

| February 19, 2012 |

Sometimes I’ll review an item where the title gives away what it actually is. But that isn’t the case with the iCADE 8-Bitty. It’s a strange name but it speaks of an item that makes it possible to enjoy all those arcade games we used to play.

Thanks to the advent of the touchscreen we can’t enjoy those traditional games in the way we used to. But of course, we can now we have the iCADE 8-Bitty.

The idea is that you get a controller that will bring back memories of all those old consoles that seemed state of the art at the time, back when we all thought Pac Man was the height of gaming.

This little controller is available for $24.99 and it runs on batteries. All you have to do is connect it to your iPad, iPhone, or any Android smartphone or tablet you have and then use the wireless connection to start playing the games you remember from times gone by.

The controller has the look of a blast from the past and it might look a little odd when sitting next to your modern, lean and mean touchscreen device. This works with phones as well, so you don’t have to restrict yourself to an iPad to use it.

I think it will be a big hit, especially since the price point is so low. I can’t wait to give it a go and try all those old games again – albeit with a very modern angle.
