We’ve been working pretty hard in the background on the site this week preparing a cool and helpful new way to discover iCade games: toucharcade.com/iCade. We’re using this now instead of our front page in order to give you a much more comprehensive look at quality titles that support the device. As you’ll see, each game has its own “blurb” as well as links to relevant content, including its original review, its “iCade Angle” write-up, and its forum thread.

That page will forever be a work in progress. Not only are older games rolling in support, but so are fresh games. You can click “refresh” on it to your heart’s content, but we’ll also do round-up posts every once in awhile pointing towards the new additions.

Speaking of that, actually, several games have added support for the iCade. Here’s a small listing of the games we’ve added since you last saw our list:

Orange Pixel

  • Super Drill Panic [Free]

Claymore Games

  • Plum Crazy [$.99]

Angry Mob Games

  • Muffin Knight [$.99]

Llamasoft

  • GoatUp [$1.99]
  • Minotron: 2112 [$1.99]
  • Minotaur Rescue [$.99]

If you know of other awesome games that support the iCade or if you're a developer of an iCade-supported game, feel free to visit our support thread and add your game to the growing list. We'll catch it and definitely roll it in. Oh! And just as a house-keeping note, here, Orange Pixel says its Meganoid [$1.99] is also iCade ready, but as of right now, the support doesn't work.

UPDATE: Deflex removed.

    I really like these features about the iCade. I couldn't care less about the iCade, but since the icontrolpad has iCade functionality, these articles are great for me, lol =]

    It would be awesome if a really high profile game like Shadowgun added icontrolpade/icade support, they've got both analog sticks working on the icontrolpad without jailbreaking now, so that coupled with the shoulder buttons on it would make ios fps's awesome!

      Yes, they should definitely always add that the iControlpad is also compatible with these games...

        If you read our list you might notice that we mention that...!

        Sorry, I didn't see it mentioned in your article here but didn't check the actual list... Thanks

    I have to admit, the iCade always seemed a little goofy to me...and I mean, it is, but it's made some significant progress in support such that it's actually kind of interesting.

    I still feel physical buttons and controls are anathema to the platform and the entire concept behind the iOS devices, but this is attractive to my completely unrelated desire to own an arcade cabinet. And it's hard to build a nice one by yourself.

      Yup, agreed!

    I don't believe the Minotaur Rescue and Deflix iCade updates are out yet.

  • PARRANOYA

    I love this for the MAME functionality. The iOS games are just a bonus. We need more support from the emulators...like nes...snes..gba

    • Johnny Ice

      What 'support' do you need from the emulators? They all run and play perfectly. They have emu's for NES, snes, GB, Genesis, MAME, and MSX.

  • bigrand1

    We need icade for IPOD/PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ' We’re not adding iCade support for Deflex as it’s not really an arcade-style game and wouldn’t really benefit from the iCade. '

    Hi everyone. Need support. Bought iCade. Synched it with iPad2. Played a few games and then lost it completelly. No more synch. iPad won't detect iCade anymore. Changed iCade batteries, plugged onto power.. Held down 4 bottom buttons + top white for 4 seconds. The coin slot led does not flash. Stays lit as soon as batteries are charged. Please help.
