We tested it as best we could with a keyboard so hopefully it will work ok! Hope you enjoy it!

Great news, I hope there's plenty of other Devs adding icade support, and not just to retro titles.

Add IronStar Arena to the list. No idea if its any good. Not mentioned as icade compatible in the description but its on ionaudio's website http://www.ionaudio.com/products/details/icade

We were advised not to use the word "iCade" in the keywords or description for Mos in order to avoid any potential apple rejection, other games that support it are probable doing the same...

list updated. yeah that is strange they don't want iCade even mentioned... mos speedrun is really great . the on-screen controls could probably go away when the icade is in use though (not a big deal).

Wow, really?! Thanks! Must try it later on my iCade.

UPDATE: Awesome! It works great! =) FINALLY something besides old Atari games, LOL!

We need to start keeping a list on the forum of games that add icade support, since devs need to hide it on the App store (why???).

We'll need to add that on the next build but it's a bit tricky to detect whether an iCade is present or whether its just a bluetooth keyboard - you can get round it by changing the control method to 'mos' in the option screen

Anyone know of any scrolling beat em ups that are Icade supported? How about the turbographics collection?

We're almost done adding iCade support to our game (Sideways Racing). We should be submitting version 1.0.2 soon.

Here's a video of it in action:

I really hope other developers add iCade support. Great device. So much fun playing iPad games with a decent hardware controller.
