Packaging Presentation & First Impressions: It comes pretty well packaged with a nice see through plastic case you could easily see this item being on the display shelves of a mobile phone shop.Taking it out of the case for the first time I instantly noticed just how small it is. But yet, despite its small size it has quite a few buttons. It’s not quite the Retro Nintendo controller they would want you to believe, but it’s pretty good.

What is it Like To Use in VR: As you might well expect it is not the best at all. Its too light, the buttons are too cramed togther and you often end up pressing 2 togther. But if you have smaller fingers than I do, maybe it would feel a lot better. But at least it feels quite tactile and you can easily find the control pad.

Final Verdict: It has to be said that this little controller has more features than you would believe for such a tiddler. Having the tiny should buttons is a real surprise, but sadly size is what lets this controller down. It’s too small, to compact and too light to be used as a serious VR controller. Having said that, if you are going to stick to simple movements and one button apps and games this could be the perfect pocket-friendly gamepad.
