iCade 8-Bitty Game Controller

We were all in awe when the iCade came out for your iPad, but few of us managed to snag one as it was a bit pricey at $100 a pop. That’s why I was quite pleased to see that ThinkGeek has supplied us with something that is a little bit more feasible for our wallets. Coming at a quarter of the price at $24.99, the iCade 8-bitty is something you are going to want if you have an iPhone, iPad, or Android device.

This is a retro wireless game controller that is reminiscent of an NES controller. The only differences being the two extra buttons, no wire, and a change of colors. This will give you access to Atari Classics collection, Pan-Man, Super Mega Worm and more. The controller contains the four face buttons, start, select, two shoulder buttons, and a D-Pad.

This thing is fully compatible with all of the iCade games, however, the Atari Greatest Hits will only run on the iPad. To make it work, you’ll need two AAA batteries which are not included, and you’ll have to buy the games separately. All 100 classic Atari games are $14.99, but there are other bundles and apps to choose from if those don’t tickle your fancy.
