Tablet Wireless Game Controller V2
Plays Well with my Kindle Fire HDX
After reading the reviews, I thought this controller was not going pair with my KINDLE FIRE HDX. Works great-- no lag; the buttons function accurately, and the size is right for comfortable gameplay. If anyone is annoyed by emulators cutting the text in half or crashing Secret of Mana 1 and 2 (Seiken Densetsu 3), download Snes9x Ex.
Great value for emulator gaming on Android
Charges quickly via USB and syncs lightning fast with my Nexus 7 2012. Works flawlessly with emulators so far and key mapping in the apps' settings. Not a whole lot of cons. The controller body isn't soft touch plastic, but hey it's $25. The joysticks are like a rigid rubber, but I don't use them often. The included mini usb cable is super short, so take that into consideration - You may need to purchase or borrow from another device for more convenient charging. For native Android games from the Play Store, it's so far only been compatible for Max Payne and Crazy Taxi. Haven't tried a whole lot of games, but it doesn't work at all for a handful that I've tried. That seems to go with most Android controllers though. NOTE ON SETUP: Make sure you do the setup for gaming mode (there's a switch on the bottom of the controller for this mode). This is the only mode you need, for emulation anyways. I've never had to setup the device again from that first time. Turn it on and it syncs with my Nexus within 1-2 seconds.
Works Wonderfully, except the wireless part
I purchased this gamepad to control some emulators on my Samsung Galaxy note 3 and my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. Here is a list of the emulators that I am using: 2600.emu,SuperN64, Drastic Demo, and John NES Light. The gamepad works fine with those emulators. I have not tried on any other apps or games. You just have to be patient and program the buttons on the game pad with the emu. The switch on the back of the controller is switched to G. The only down side is that my new controller, after charging for 16 plus hours does not hold the charge. Back to the store it goes, but I will get another one. The controller is comfortable to play with. Too bad it does not have a phone holder like the Moga Power has.
Works with Raspberry Pi
Oh yeah! Works with Raspberry Pi ... good responsiveness, at least with the old-school games I play on Mame. Good construction ... a definite good one for the price!
Great Contoller ; Just Hate The 1234 Button Design
I looked all over the internet at different bluetooth controllers and read many reviews and decided to take a chance with this $25 controller . I tested it on my Galaxy S3 and out of the box it works with GTA 3 , Dead Trigger when you re-map it, check youtube for more compatible games since those are the only two i tried . I haven't tried it with a tablet yet so i cant say what tablets it works great with . I essentially bought this for my laptop (with bluetooth built in of course) to play GTA : San Andreas And Saints Row 4 and all my other games and they work perfectly once you've re-mapped some of the buttons. This is a great controller because unlike a lot of other controllers , there is no bluetooth dongle (so i can charge my phone while using controller or etc) . It is rechargeable by usb and it has L2 and R2 buttons that feel comfortable to press instead of awkwardly placed ones . My only complaint is the 1234 button design , it just looks weird having 1234 on your gamepad , i'd cover it with stickers or something other than that its dope .
This is much better controller than I thought! Last year I tried it, and it felt much too light and cheap. But, after watching some reviews, I decided to one; I do not regret my purchase at all. The plastic does seem a bit cheap, but felt nice enough in the hands. The controller itself is very well built and feels very sturdy. The grips on the handles are also a nice addition. The color scheme and aesthetic design are also visually appealing. Buttons feel nice, and sticks feel nice. The L2/R2 buttons feel a bit mushy. Would be nice if the L2/R2 buttons were analog and would be nice if the controller had rumble. But at $25, this is an amazing controller!
I'd love to see Gamestop's designers bring out a mini-gamepad with a phone holder that competes with the new MOGA Hero Power and the PhoneJoy, but at a low price.
Also, very nice box.
This is a good controller for android if...
This is good controller for android, if your device is rooted. If your android device is rooted, that opens up a whole new experience with this gamepad. With this controller, and the Tincore key mapping app, you can play a lot more games! The key mapper is essentially like the sixaxis app for ps3 controllers, except its free and works with almost any Bluetooth controller. I enjoy this controller.
I'm rather new to the Android world....but not new to computers.
I've been searching for a good controller for my Android device (MK808B) for awhile now. A lot of people recommended a PS3 controller, but I just couldn't get it to work, no matter what I did.
I then went to Gamestop...and picked the Red Samuari controller up on a recommendation.
It connected in seconds..and I've installed games that are compatible with it..as well as Muoeb64 and mame32 emulators.
It plays all my games flawlessly.
Cant use with many games
Rite now im not sure if its my controller or the games but i have DL a game called A Bards Tale and Soulcraft THD that both say they are bluetooth controller compatable. This controller does not seem to work with either of these games though and I am very dissapointed. Even when i check the controller settings in the game it doesnt work. The only games i have been able to use this controller just fine with are emelated games. I was really looking forward to playing HD Tegra 3 games with this controller though. I am really wondering if it is the controller or the games but either way im dissapointed. I really wanted to play FF Dimensions with the controller too but that doesnt work either. sorry for the bad spelling.
I ended up buying this because I wanted to able to take my tablet with me and play games on the go without having a wire hanging down all the time. I looked for a while and glad I waited and found this one. It works great with my Acer Iconia A500. I played a few games that supported a controller and had no problems with it. I also used it with a few emulators and worked just fine. It has a good feel to it. The buttons are very solid. I also paired it up with my PC which has blue tooth and tried a few games and it also worked great. It doesn't say for PC but I had no problem using it. The price is great for what you get. Most good controllers are $40+ and still at that price aren't great. Its lightweight with a built in battery so no need to worry about changing them. So far I am happy and glad I purchased it.
