Fancy a spot of retro-gaming on your iOS device, complete with a D-Pad style controller? This might just be the answer.

ThinkGeek is showing the iCade 8-Bitty at the 2012 New York Toy Fair at the moment and plans to launch the device later this year.

The iCade 8-Bitty has eight buttons - four on the front, two on the shoulders and Start and Select buttons in the middle - as well as a D-Pad.

It will cost $25 (around £16) and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and Android devices too. It connects with the device using Bluetooth, so there are no cables to worry about, and has an automatic power-save mode too.

It's compatible with scores of games, though ThinkGeek warns that only Atari Greatest Hits app, which its previous iCade device was built for, is only available on the iPad.

However, it is build around a completely open development platform, so developers can add support for iCade with no permission needed from Apple or ThinkGeek.
