Do you have a penchant for 8-bit gaming? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you might want to check out just what the £14.99 Arcadie for iPhone is able to offer. Since we are living in a world of 3D graphics, and have been doing so for the longest time already, how about turning back the clock and have some 2D gaming goodness instead? The Arcadie for iPhone is just the home entertainment system for you, where all you need to do is slide your iPhone or iPod touch into the rear of the Arcadie, where it will click when closed. Followed by powering up one of the half dozen free Apps, and you can more or less get started gaming there and then.
With such a simple setup process, it is not a Bluetooth connection that helps it remain connected, so there is no need to worry about having it drain the battery. Apart from that, the capacitive material paves the way for the controls to provide a realistic arcade feel without resulting in any marks on your display. Any takers so far, or do you prefer something more expensive and comprehensive like the PS Vita or Nintendo 3DS? Old is gold, after all.
