Bladepad adds physical game controls to your iPhone, available now

Game pad devices have been around since the App Store has, giving new ways to control and interact with the multitude of games available on Apple’s software store. A new device, dubbed “Bladepad”, has just been released and comes in a new form of physical controls, offering you a full gamepad experience in the form of a Bluetooth attachment. One of the best things I noticed when watching the above video overview of the device is that the case part can actually detach from the gamepad, allowing you to not have to lug around a thick iPhone all day when you don’t want to use the gaming part of it. Another great thing about this is that many games are already compatible, here is the full list via the Bladepad website as of this writing:

In case you didn’t count, there are 48 games there with support for this device, and some big names, including Pangea Software, make some of the games listed. I went through and added a hyperlink to each name, so if you are interested in any of the apps, simply click the name to be taken to its iTunes App Store page. I’ve never been a big iPhone gamer, but I know there is a huge market for gamers on the iPhone. This is available for iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, and iPod touch 5th gen for $99.99. If you are one of those interested, you can check it out here: Bladpad.
