If you're looking to get that authentic arcade gaming experience on your iPhone, you'll need to pick up this JOYSTICK-IT Arcade Stick. No longer can you blame your low scores on faulty touchscreen inputs as this smartphone joystick gives users intuitive precision rivaling that of console controllers.

The current JOYSTICK-IT Arcade Stick model is actually a smaller version of an existing ThinkGeek JOYSTICK-IT Arcade Stick, but with the reduction in size also comes a reduction in cost (from $24.99 to $17.99). It's made from solid milled-aluminum and features a laser-etched crosshair design on the top of the joystick for extra thumb grippage. You can take off this smartphone add-on and reposition it at will without any harm to your iPhone screen, and it's compatible with thousands of games. Sounds like a game changer to me!
