Midway Arcade Games Now Compatible With iCade

Retro gaming fans will be happy to know that 12 Midway titles have been added to iCade's rapidly growing list of games. Version 1.0.1 of the Midway Arcade app brings a few bug fixes and full iCade support.

Midway iOS Games

iCade is a retro-styled tabletop cabinet that transforms your iPad into a mini arcade console. It's compatible with the Atari App, which includes 100 classic Atari games, and other iOS iCade compatible titles. The iCade iPad Arcade Cabinet is $99 from ThinkGeek. It includes a retro arcade joystick, eight buttons, and the Atari App with a free copy of Missile Command. Additional Atari games are $1 or $14.99 for all 100 games.

Turn Your iPad Into an Arcade With the New Atari Joystick

It's amazing how Atari games continue to reinvent themselves. The Atari's Greatest Hits app for the iPad is getting a companion called the Atari Arcade: Duo Powered joystick. The new joystick is reminiscent of the popular iCade cabinet shell, but will probably carry a cheaper price tag, and will be carried at retail stores like Walmart and Target.

Atari Games

There isn't much info on the Atari Arcade yet (like when it will be available), but just like the iCade, it allows users to play classic Atari 2600 and arcade games via the Atari Greatest Hits app. The app features classic games like Asteroids and Centipede, and is available for the iPhone or iPad.

Retro iPad Arcade Cabinet to Become Reality

Are you a fan of classic arcade games? ThinkGeek fooled everyone last April with their mock-up of the iCADE retro iPad gaming cabinet, complete with a quarter slot and Donkey Kong. Turns out that Ion Audio is partnering with Atari and ThinkGeek to offer the real thing for $99.

Apple iPad iCade ThinkGeek Bluetooth retro gaming cabinet

A great-looking Bluetooth tabletop arcade cabinet, the iCADE was showcased at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) with a specially developed iPad version of Asteroids. The top of the unit lifts up and any iPad drops right into the unit. Joystick controls and buttons connect wirelessly to the iPad for a tactile gaming experience.
