ThinkGeek presents the 8-bitty retro game controller for iPhone and Android
As you can probably tell, we have a retro-styled wireless controller on our hands, made to work with the iPhone, the iPad, and Android smartphones or tablets. It comes with a total of 8 physical buttons – four action buttons up front, a select and start button, and two shoulder buttons, along with a 4-way directional pad. There are hundreds of classic video games that are compatible with the accessory, including the Atari Classics collection, Pac-Man, Super Mega Worm, and many more. (Check the product page for a full list.)
So in case you ever need a dose of retro-gaming action, just pop a pair of AAA batteries inside the 8-bitty controller and let the fun begin! The accessory is now shipping from ThinkGeek for $29.99.

Reminds you of Mario? When was the last time you played a Mario game? 1985?

Sir, i don't know how to pronounce your name, i guess you're probably a fan of the Star wars fame. You've got a knock on your socks questioning me huh??
So here it is...'Reminds me of 8-bit Mario game that i used to play when i was 8-9 years old'...clarified??

You'll have to excuse me for not understanding your Star Wars reference or what "knock on your socks" means. Is that also a phrase from 1985? Basically, half of your post made no sense to me. And no, I'm not a Star Wars fan.

I didn't realize there was an age maximum here. My bad. Besides, if you were "8-9" when the 8-bit Mario games came out, then you're definitely older than I am.

Do you notice that even now some kids even play the 8-bit Mario game??
Oh wait, what will you know...you're still counting how old i am!!

LOL!! Refresh as in, yes, HD-fy it!!
And bring it to a whole new level of interactive stages!! That could be something!!

That could be nice. Same gameplay, same storyline, same everything. But make the effects better. Imagine Mario throwing blazing fireballs and making faces! :p
