|Bottom line|| |
The good news: the iPad has a game controller. The bad news: it only works with a few games. Meet the awkward Duo Gamer.
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 SteelSeries Stratus is the best-feeling and most versatile iOS game controller, but it's a lot to pay for an accessory.
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.
Logitech's first stab at an iOS game controller nails design and feel, but lacks flexibility or extra features.
