Mobile devices are now widely being used for gaming. What used to be only available for large systems are now readily available in small packages. However, playing from portable devices may lack two things: comfort and customization. While apps such as SixAxis allows connecting external controllers, only half of the issue is addressed. These controllers may be hard to use if the button layout is incorrect. But don’t worry because this is now a thing of the past. There are now available gamepad mappers to spare you from the hassle.

A known app for doing gamepad mapping in Android devices is Tincore Keymapper. The app works by defining the buttons and keys on the external input device you are using. It is then superimposed on the top of the touch controls of your game. If you are using a PS4 controller, you might want to use the analog stick to swap weapons. The app would allow you to set the controller to do such. You could even set up two controllers at a time. Today, the app is compatible with Wiimotes as well and connections via USB or BT using a physical cable.

Currently, there are more gamepad mappers for iOS devices. For Android devices, Tincore Keymapper would suffice. Here, you could create and share your profile. Before using the app, make sure that you understand it by reading the documentation provided. It is relatively easy to use, but then it’s better to be safe than sorry. There are a lot of commands you could mix and match and it might be a lot to take in at first. Once you are using the app, do not forget to report bugs to help the developers improve it. There you have it. Happy playing!

Safe place for students to play video games online

Friv4School.com is an ad free website with over 250 flash games. These games have been gathered from around the web and have been compiled here for quick and easy access. The games are geared towards children as they do not contain any explicit imagery or language. The site can be used within a classroom environment to help children learn.

What are the flash games?

There are several different types of games that you can try out and play. The different types of flash games I found are:

  • Cooking
  • Hairstyling
  • Logic and puzzle
  • Race against time
  • Adventure
  • History
  • Painting

The games allow for the user to play a game and when they are done they can click the back arrow to go back to the main site and choose another game. Some of the games will have links to other games created by the same developer. These links will take the user away from the Friv4School.com site.

Some of the games with levels will allow you to pick up where you left off. This will only work if you are using the same computer as you did previously. The games that allow you to continue where you left off are most notably the logic, puzzle, and racing games.

More information:
When you first go to the site the third button from the left has a light blue background with a white “i”. If you click on this button, it will take you to more information about the Friv4School.com website and its uses within the classroom. There are other links that will take you away from the website in this area. The links will open with a new window so that you can remain on the site if you wish.
