Mobile gaming continues to thrive and as manufacturers continue to bolster their smartphone and tablet ranges gaming companies and independent developers continue to evolve and create some incredibly rich and addictive gaming apps. Now developers are beginning to look beyond just the handset and are creating some innovative gadgets to help mobile gamers improve their experience.
This gaming controller connects to your smartphone device via Bluetooth and its small enough for you to carry around on your keys, which is certainly an added benefit for those mobile gamers who are constantly on the move. The only drawback here is that you’ll need to balance your phone somewhere, or of course take a look at some of the other mountable controller products available to you.
LOGITECH POWERSHELL CONTROLLER
For iPhone owners looking to get a little more control from their handset will be pleased to discover Logitech’s special Powershell Controller. Mobile gamers will be able to mount their device to the Powershell and play their favourite iOS titles without having to bash away on their screen anymore. The controller comes with a D-pad and A, B, X, Y buttons and can even charge your iPhone as you play. Try your hand at some of the best RPG games for the iPhone.
THE ICADE JR.
Even though the Powershell, mentioned above, will turn your iPhone or iPad into an iconic looking controller for your device the iCade Jr. will be able to convert it even further. You can quite literally turn your mobile smartphone into a cool piece of gaming nostalgia. It’s a mega small arcade machine that your handset slips into which comes complete with buttons and a joystick making it just as gaming practical as it is nice to look at.
THE FLING GAME CONTROLLER
This controller is available for the iPad and other tablets that allows you to add joysticks to your mobile-based gaming experience. They can be easily attached to your device allowing you to control your gaming action that features an on-screen joystick. There is also a pair of Fling Mini controllers available to iPhone, Android and even iPod Touch owners.
Whilst the Oculus Rift and other VR-related technology is almost within touching distance for now you can use a whole host of lesser products to get your first taste of VR gaming. Google for instance has its own DIY cardboard device which even though it extremely cheap and cheerful it’s still fairly effective when you begin loading up the various VR gaming apps that are currently out there.
