If you miss the good old days of Nintendo and want to recreate that feeling from your youth then there is some good news for you.  iCade has created and released a wireless game controller for Android and iOS devices that has that old-style look and feel.  In fact, the controller bears a striking resemblance to those old NES and SNES ones that we all remember.

While the controller is designed to work with classic arcade games like Pac Man and Missile Command there has been word leaked that the device is not compatible with all games, so be sure to read the brochure carefully.

Features

  • Works with your iPhone and iPad and fits comfortably in your pocket with a classic retro look
  • Buttons include select, start, 4 face buttons, and 2 shoulder buttons
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Compatible with all iCade games
  • The iCade 8-Bitty is an open development platform, meaning new apps can be added to it without having to acquire any permission from Apple or Google.
  • More than 100 Atari classic games are available
The iCade 8-bitty is made by ion, and you can visit their site for more information on this and their other products.  The 8-bitty will retail for $29.99.
