I'd be more worried if it was a good game, like Legend of the Dragoon

The Vectrex regeneration app is free on iOS!

Vectrex by Rantmedia Games
https://appsto.re/ie/pQ9xG.i

Yeah yeah, its not as nice as the screen of the real deal but this app is actually awesome!

Its a virtual room you can navigate and see the boxes for the games in 3d models, you can play with overlays on or off the screen and its even got some of the flicker!

You can also watch vectrex commercials and read a bit of history.

As well as touch screen controls it also supports bluetooth controllers so it works beautifully with an iCade.

Its just a really nice way of playing the games if youre away from your own Vectrex, or its knackered or you never owned one!

Androids nail in the coffin for retro gaming is when the bluetooth stack no longer supported the iCade after Android 4 i believe.

Be like me and cidey and have the best of worlds, a not too expensive iPad, and a not so expensive Android phone!

I'd never pay 800 euro for a new iphone though, thats just crazy.

The icades control system is a terrible hacked together thing though ..it emulates a bt keyboard and sends 2 keypresses on each button press ..one to say button down and another different character to say button released. I was demoing the cardboardVR space invaders arcade game last year and used the cp from the icade as a controller ( I had to rewrite the ingame controls to match it so thats how I know.)
I pulled the bluetooth board from my icade , binned it and slapped a 0 delay usb controller in there instead. (Ended up sticking a raspberry pi 3 into the mix and retrofitting a 10" vga monitor too).

I don't have a cheap phone either!
I used to have a MotoG a while ago but graduated to a LG Flex2, followed by a Nexus 6 and now a Nexus 6P!
