Turn Your iPhone Into a Video Game Console with GameDock

Posted on July 5, 2012 by

Although I think using AirPlay with the Apple TV is the best solution for playing iOS games on your TV, GameDock is a great way to give you a vintage NES style gaming experience. GameDock is a Kickstarter project and has reached a little over $10,000 of their $50,000 goal, with 42 days to go.

Have you ever played a great retro game on your iPhone, only to be frustrated with the touch controls? Or have you wanted to play an awesome iPad game with a friend, but two people holding one tablet just doesn’t feel right? With the GameDock for iOS you can play classic games the way they were meant to be played: with two controllers and a TV. Just plug the dock into your TV like a video game console and your iOS device into the dock like a game cartridge. The GameDock is designed to be compatible with existing iCade games and for dock-ready games that include two-player support and full 1080p HDTV output.

GameDock will work with any game that currently works with the iCade system, as long as it only requires two action buttons and two menu buttons.
