Frequently Asked Questions
What is the purpose of this site?
This site was created to help players (with Android phones & tablets) more easily find games that can be played with a gamepad controller. This isn't normally a feature which can be searched for on the Google Play or Amazon App Stores.
Is there a mobile app?
Of course! From the free mobile app, you can sort by gamepad type, and download directly from Google Play with a touch. Download from Google Play here.
Am I required to use a gamepad with these games?
Not at all! All of these games are designed primarily to not require gamepads. Gamepad use is an optional enhancement.
How do I use a gamepad with my phone or tablet?
There are primarily two ways:
- Connect a wired Xbox controller to the USB port of your Android device, with a mini-USB adapter. (Might work for other USB controllers as well)
- Connect a wireless Bluetooth-enabled controller to your device
Can you give some examples of Android-compatible gamepads?
Sure-- with one caveate-- I am not endorsing these gamepads personally! Purchase and use at your own risk.

- Moga - Another popular gamepad
