Hands-on Impressions of the Bladepad – An iOS Game Controller | EntertainmentBuddha

Smartphone and tablet devices have more or less taken over the mobile gaming market with their collection of high-quality titles at an affordable price (if not free), but the virtual controls that most of these games employ aren’t quite perfect. FPS games are the most difficult experiences to enjoy on small touchscreen devices due to their reliance on twin-stick shooting controls, which just don’t feel natural in a virtual setting. Other games that also utilize virtual renditions of a standard game controller don’t fare too much better, which has spawned a new market of hardware-based controllers for touchscreen devices to help make the experience feel more at home for hardcore gamers.
