There was a time when many were calling for the iPad and its smaller siblings to get a dedicated gamepad. Plenty of otherwise good iOS games still emulate traditional console controls to varying degrees of success, but the masses seem to have cooled down on the notion of needing a full-blown peripheral.
60beat's GamePad (iPad, iPhone 4 and 4S, 4th gen iPod Touch) is targeting those players who remain interested. This controller connects via headphone jack, of all places, and seems to work as advertised; problem is, only Bugdom 2 and Aftermath work with the device. Yep, two games.
One can only hope that, on the developer side, including support is fairly painless. At $49.99, we're going to need to see a bigger library of titles.
