Are there any accessible games for Mac or iOS that have controller compatibility?

iOS & iPadOS Gaming

Subject pretty much covers it. I've paired an xbox controller with my iPhone and found that I could play the first sonic game, which was pretty epic, if not a little random... Okay, it made nice noises... I was wondering if any of the accessible games have controller compatibility turned on. As far as I can tell it's not a default aspect of games? I'm thinking any first person RPG would work really well though I do accept that most of them have been designed with the IOS interface as the primary mode of control.

I believe that a blind legend has controller support and I know for sure that the blind swordsman does.
also double check the Tikon Blu Games, in particular the racing and space shooter titles, You can find their stuff at audiogamestore.IT
when the veil releases, it should also have controller support.

How about the games and emulators that are on retroarch? They are not accessible but it is a step in the right direction.

I know there are a lot of mainstream games out there with controller support which is great in some ways as we can do some good old button bashing for a lot of them but I'm thinking of a game out of the box that we could actually play with a remote. something like papa sangrie would have been incredible with controller support, for example.

Thinking about it, apple have a problem, the games they create have to be playable on both touch screens, remotes and keyboards, added to that they have to work on screen sizes from the SE to the Apple TV and you see why they've not been hot as a games hub. They were never going to be developers, but they've tried to combine everything too much. If only they made their own console with console specific games... With accessibility in mind so we could kick ass in a dolby surround setup with a ergonomically beautiful controller in hand... The sun setting through the windows leading out to the balcony as the warm sea breeze wafts in carrying the scent of sun cream and bbs...

Wait... What?

anyway, we need more games with controller support please developers. It could actually make some of them semi playable. Fanks.

I've got a blind legend through steam and though the xbox controller seems to be working in the steam main control panel (making all the noises) it doesn't seem to be recognised by the game itself. I'll check out a blind swordsman
