quality controls complete the retro feel

Chunky joystick & 8 full-sized buttons

Playing retro arcade games on the world’s most advanced touchscreen tablet is a bit like using a Space Shuttle to pop to the corner shop: daft but immeasurably entertaining. And that’s precisely why we love the iCade for iPad.

This arcade-style cabinet features a reassuringly chunky joystick and eight full-sized buttons that wirelessly integrate with your iPad’s internal jiggery pokery, allowing you to play various retro titles downloadable via the Atari Greatest Hits app. Mum, lend us 10p.

Works with hundreds of iPad games!

As well as a whole heap of Atari classics, new and existing apps can be easily updated to work with iCade. Ooh, Angry Birds with a retro twist. This really is one of the greatest iPad accessories we’ve ever seen. On the rare occasions you’re not twiddling its high quality joystick, the iCade doubles up as stylish stand for your iPad. Put it on your desk and we guarantee you’ll be unable to resist a quick game of Asteroids every time you pass. Game (and life) over!

Customer Reviews

I use this to play on the Vectrex App on my iPad and it's awesome! It's like playing on the original Vectrex console!
James - 1st December 2012
Hi, Is there a version compatible with the latest iPad 4 ? Or because Firebox is wireless, it does not really matter because the physical connectors are not being utilized ?
Cweks - 26th November 2012
Firebox says: Hi there, unfortunately this is only compatible with iPhone and iPod touch.
How much would it cost me (total) to get this Icade to Romania?
Cezara - 7th November 2012
Firebox says: Hi Cezara, shipping to Romania for this particular product would cost £21.04 via DPD Road Freight (4-6 working days), £19.52 via TNT Road Freight (6-7 working days), or £75.71 via. TNT Air Freight (1-3 working days).
Is this def compatible with the Ipad 3 (the New Ipad) on a lot of other sites it only shows as being compatible with Ipad 1&2?
AB - 8th August 2012
Firebox says: Hey AB, a quick search says that this will work just fine with the new iPad!
I would definitely buy an iPad just to have that.
Olivia - 7th March 2012
Firebox says: You know what to do then!
Very well constructed quality product. Only problem is that most of the games that it is compatible with aren't free and some games that are meant to be compatible with did not work despite messing about with settings, anyone else having this problem?
