The good news: the iPad has a game controller. The bad news: it only works with a few games. Meet the awkward Duo Gamer.
The Moga Ace Power successfully turns an iOS 7-equipped iPhone into a full-fledged gaming handheld, and adds enough buttons to cover all bases when more games arrive to work with it.
The iCade Mobile is a retro gaming oddity for the iPhone that adds physical buttons, but for a lofty $70 price. Its lack of universal compatibility, lack of analog sticks, and large size relegate it to strictly novelty status.
iCade succeeds in shrinking last year's arcade cabinet down to a clever pocket size with the 8-Bitty controller. Even though it won't work with many iOS games, the price is low enough that some people will want to buy it anyway for the novelty.
