And you thought your Game Boy was cool.

The SNES Bluetooth game controller lets you play old and new games on your smartphone without having to tap your screen to death. It is a direct replica of the Super Nintendo controller you first came to know and love, except it has a removable extender clip to mount your device.

The controller connects to your device through Bluetooth or an included USB cable in case you’re without service. It’s compatible with PC, Mac, Android and iOS. Depending on what device you have, you can use it in a variety of ways.

If you have an Android device, you can set it up to legally run emulation apps and play retro games via ROM files. Apple prohibits emulation software in the App Store, so iPhone users can’t play retro games without jailbreaking their phone. However you can use the dual-keyboard system in iOS to play multiplayer games.

You can purchase the SNES Bluetooth game controller for $34.95, which is 22 percent off the regular price. Get one here at the Daily Dot store.
