iCade-compatible games listed


Touch Arcade has a list of the games on the App Store currently compatible with ThinkGeek's iCade arcade stand for the iPad. It's certainly more than just the one official Atari app that it was compatible with at release, but the list is still pretty short, with only 16 titles included:

  • No Gravity
  • Warblade HD
  • Sideways Racing
  • Silverfish MAX
  • Match Panic
  • Mos Speedrun
  • Velocispider
  • Super Mega Worm
  • Super Mega Worm Vs. Santa
  • Compression HD
  • IronStar Arena
  • Emerald Mine
  • Space Inversion
  • Space Inversion 2
  • Space Inversion Puzzle
  • Freeesh

The good news is that with titles like Super Mega Worm and Velocispider in there, these are definitely some quality titles, not just filler-ware. The list is still pretty small when you think about the App Store in terms of total number of games.

Hopefully spotlighting titles like these will encourage developers to step up and support the iCade, especially when a game like theirs makes sense for a real-life arcade stick and buttons. True, the audience of people that actually owns the device is smaller than the iPad audience in general, but the iCade is a pretty cool and unique setup, and it would be nice to see it supported a little more widely.
