ThinkGeek presents the 8-bitty retro game controller for iPhone and Android
From TinkGeek – the same fine folks that brought us the JOYSTICK-IT and the iCade iPad cabinet, comes another neat accessory tailored with mobile gaming in mind. It is called the iCade 8-bitty and reminds us a lot of those classic NES game controllers with its boxy looks and button arrangement.

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.
