Default iCade 8-bitty retro wireless controller

So I gave in and bought this remote only to be told it won't work with my iPad3 or any of the games I have. Is there a list of compatible games for this remote?

Or has some genius been able to hack the new games to allow the use of this remote?

Thanks,

CP

It should work fine with your iPad 3. Any iCade Enabled app should run on it, the only problem is that the buttons may be in an awkward position. Most apps are done with the iCade (Core) in mind, so the buttons may be awkward. There is a list of games (which I update and keep track of). iCade just keep in mind while they should work, the buttons might not be in the best positions.

Yep - as your man says above works with nearly all iCade games - button mapping isn't always great but great with Minter/llamasoft games, ExZeus2 and iMame/Gridlee on iPad3. Button mashing fun.
