    "One of the best multiplayer games on mobile right now! Feels and plays like a modern PC title. Not only is it co-op multiplayer, but it can also take a wireless controller, which I appreciate. Controls are super important with games like this. Lots of unlockables and content to see as well. All in all, I'm really glad I gave this game a try! Highly recommended."

    "I do remember playing this game on PC with my cousins! We do stupid stuffs instead of doing the missions. It was a blast. Now I can play it anywhere I go. I'm glad that they provided controller support for devices. Playing from PC to device is kinda awkward but it's worth it."


Did you know that Joysticks were first used as controls for aircraft and elevators? We know joysticks as tools used for controlling video games, which have one or more push-buttons whose state can be read by the computer. However, the earliest known joystick was used on an aircraft by Louis Bleriot in 1908. He used it in his Bleriot VIII aircraft. The name "joystick" is said to have originated with an early 20th century French pilot, Robert Esnault-Pelterie. The joystick as we know today was first created in 1972. It was created for the Magnavox Odyssey console by Ralph H. Baer. He is also credited as the inventor of television video games.

The video game joysticks were used to control the horizontal and vertical position of a spot displayed on a screen. The earliest known electronic game joystick with a fire button was released by Sega as part of the 1969 arcade game, Missile. Technological evolution has enhanced the looks and functionality of the "joystick". The modern variations are now known as "controllers" which are still widely for gaming. These controllers have also evolved to be used in mobile devices for gamepad supported games, because of the demand from the younger generation. For iPhone users, they can play the best iOS games with controller support. This would enable gamers to play their favorite games and enjoy them, even without being connected to a gaming console.

    "Do you like shooter games? If so, you have got to download Air Attack. You can get it from the Google play store. They have so many different weapons to explore, even a Nuclear bomb. After a long hard day at the office, I come home, start the game then totally blow everything up. What a stress relief. Try it, I did and I love it."

    "Machinarium is one of the highest rated games that can use a controller (Android 5 or later) on the Google Play store and Steam. This fun and somewhat adorable came is easy to learn, but challenging to master and worth the time invested."

I was hoping it would be good because It would mean all the latest app and new game information would be in one spot BUT after a few days it stopped offering new games or even wouldn't allow me to update the app."
