This controller is pretty much the same as the other iCade controllers: The D-Pad and buttons feel good,
lag is minimal, good construction. Also, like I explained in the main iCade section, this also means it's only compatible with software that has
direct iCade support; It will not work as a standard bluetooth controller.
There are a few things that make this controller stand out from the rest:
- The only devices that fit inside are iPhone 4S and smaller. It won't fit anything even slightly bigger,
including new iPhone / iTouch systems, as well as most Android phones.
- It's very heavy, compared to the other controllers I reviewed. I actually like that it's
heavier and wish the Gametel was the same weight, but that's totally a matter of preference.
- It supports portrait mode, which comes in handy for many games:
If you have an iPhone 4S (or older), or a comparable iTouch, this might be the perfect controller for
you...especially if you play a lot of portrait mode games.
