    If you like RPGs you have a whole bunch of them that are good, start with Golden Sun!

    Enjoy your bad controls and short battery life.

    I've gotten a bit used to the controls but the landscape mode sucks. Oh well I've got an EZFlash 3-in-1 coming from Dealextreme [​IMG]

    If you have a computer (which you do) just emulate GBA games on there. It's much better than having to play it with buttons on the screen that aren't tangible.

    I would say so, but everybody has their preferences.

    agreed
    remember you are using the touch screen as buttons so its pretty much crap
    dont get any fighting games because there is a chance that you might break the screen XD
    try some rpg as they dont need intense button smashing

    I tried it on one of my friend's iPhone.
    Well, the software was good, but playing button games on an iPhone.. let's just say I have one less reason to buy an iPhone.

    icontrolpad(coming soon)

    Got Jailbreak running on your iPhone?

    Emulators and games just not really working well enough with the touch screen?

    We didn't think so either - so we built this little add on.

    Yeah. Realise the full potential of the iPhone by adding real controls.

    Your iPhone just slides in and locks in to place via the serial port,
    there are no modifications needed and you can remove it at any time.

    The iControlPad is already supported by some of the biggest iPhone devs (including ZodTTD - PSX, GBA emu etc.) and we are sending out units to several others.


    That's quake running with real controls. The final iPad is BLACK, it's white in that version as that allows us to see any stress areas on the iPad case and correct them. Technical stuff. Don't worry about it.

    That is actually really cool.

    Anyone know if there are any other versions of the controller? Such as one specially designed for PSX with twin analog sticks or d-pads?
