Smartphone gaming is becoming so popular that it’s starting to turn some off buying consoles all together. With this surge, more and more game designers are creating games for the mobile devices and new accessories are coming in from all corners, but there’s still room for improvement. Most controllers for smartphones are a bit bulky and not as portable as we would like. Gamller can definitely improve your gaming experience and when your done, the handles come off and slip away easily in your bag or pocket.
The Gamller controller is a brand new accessory for smartphones that allows users to play directly on the screen. So new in fact that its KickStarter campaign hasn’t even launched yet. But we can already tell that this little device will do well.
Unlike typical controllers for smartphones, it is very lightweight, portable and it will be affordable as well at just under $30 ($20 for Early birds). Just as the selfie stick helps people take pictures, Gamller provides more comfort to gamers while playing. It doesn’t require battery power or Bluetooth to work with your device.
Just put your smartphone into the Gamller case and attach the slip on handles in play position and then start your favorite games. When you get tired of playing, you can put the handles in video mode and you can enjoy content from sources like YouTube or iTunes. When you finish you just remove the handles and put them in your pocket and leave the Gamller on your smartphone as this serves as a protective case for it.
The controller has been tested by several players as well as casual users. So far, the feedback has been “quite positive and encouraging” for them, which was crucial to move forward to this new development step for the Portugal company.
The Gamller is initially going to be available for iPhone 6/s/7 and Samsung Galaxy S6/7/8/Edge. During the Kickstarter campaign and according to the levels reached of funding, they promise to increase the product range to become available for more smartphone models. You can sign up at Gamller site to get more information via email and register for the “super early bird pricing” for a controller of your own.
