|Bottom line|| |
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.
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 good news: the iPad has a game controller. The bad news: it only works with a few games. Meet the awkward Duo Gamer.
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.
