Shuttle Scuttle and the iCade 8-Bitty Controller

We’re huge fans of 8-bit gaming and couldn’t wait for the iCade 8-Bitty controller to be released.

We have tested our game, Shuttle Scuttle, with all of the popular game input devices such as the iCade iPad Arcade Cabinet, Gametel and iControlPad.

This new NES-inspired controller, iCade 8-Bitty, is by-far our favorite. It fits perfectly with the 8-bit style of Shuttle Scuttle.

Check out the video above for to see the gameplay experience. We also took this opportunity to test out Shuttle Scuttle on the new iPad mini!

    No release date has been announced (though Ars Technica is reporting it will see daylight this year), but the price of US$24.99 makes the 8-Bitty a tempting prospect compared to the $99.99 iCade – and might perhaps be more evocative of retro gaming to children of the late 80s who cut their teeth on colorful platformers in their bedrooms rather than on shmups in smoky amusement arcades.
