When it comes to gaming on mobile devices, there are just some games that don’t really play as well with a touchscreen. For example fighting games, FPS games, or even racing games; those are games that tend to play much better with physical controls as sometimes touchscreen controls are too sensitive to be any good.
However it isn’t always practical to walk around with a controller on you, but if you are looking for a compatible controller for your mobile gaming needs, you might be interested in Nyko’s latest product, the Cygnus. This is a controller designed for Android devices in mind and comes in a pretty familiar design.
As you can see, the Cygnus’ design isn’t too different from gaming controllers made by other companies, or those used by consoles right now. So if you do game frequently on consoles, then this might be a more familiar setup. It will feature four normal buttons, dual analog sticks, trigger buttons on the front, and there’s even a home button that you can use to interact with your phone.
It will connect via Bluetooth meaning that it should play nicely with just about any Android mobile device. Since it uses the standard Android HID protocol, it also means that it will play nicely with any controller-enabled Android title. It is priced at $24.99 and is available for purchase via Nyko’s website.
