iCade Mobile now on sale -- hardcore handheld gaming comes to iPhone

iCade Mobile finally goes on sale; gives your iPhone a hardcore handheld gaming experience

iCade mobile, the handheld gaming solution for serious mobile gamers, is now available with immediate delivery. Announced back at CES in January, the iCade Mobile is a case extension for your iPhone that offers dedicated hardware buttons and a directional pad for that PSP-style, tactile, full-on handheld gaming experience.

Gamers of all ages will love iCade Mobile's classic controller configuration, designed to play modern and retro games the way they were meant to be played. iCade Mobile's four-way directional pad, four front-facing action buttons and four shoulder buttons are designed to withstand even the most fierce button mashing. iCade Mobile gets your fingers out of the way and gives you a full view of the action with a specially designed cradle that ensures safe loading and unloading of your iPhone or iPod touch, while also providing a solid, secure fit even during the most intense game-play sessions.

The iCade Mobile supports all games that currently have support for the original iCade system. Unfortunately, that list is not that extensive; it includes around 44 games. Many of them are classics and ideal for a joystick or d-pad control, but for this system to become a runaway success it needs many more than that.

iCade Mobile now on sale -- hardcore handheld gaming comes to iPhone


At last, now I can finally play games on iOS. I just couldnt get into the touchscreen as a joystick. It put me right off

iControlPad is much better if you are jailbroken. It allows to play any iOS game with the gamepad by mapping the on screen controls to the gamepad buttons. That means you can make most iOS games work. The technology behind this is called BluTrol. You can learn all about it from iControlPad.com. Highly recommended!!!
