  • Go to “Settings” > “About phone”.
  • Tap “Build number” several times until “Developer options” are enabled.
  • In “Developer options”, scroll to find “Wireless debugging” and turn it on.

Step 4: Add Squad Busters to the Mantis App

In the Mantis app, add “Squad Busters” to the list of games. This confirms that the app recognizes the game and applies the necessary configurations.

Step 5: Gamepad Mapping

Launch “Squad Busters” through the Mantis app and start mapping your controller buttons:

  • Use the Mantis overlay to drag gamepad controls to correspond with the on-screen controls of the game.
  • Adjust the size of the joystick and button overlays to match the touch areas on the game screen.
  • Check and modify the mapping in real-time as you play to ensure all controls are responsive and accurately placed.

While in-game, you can adjust the Mantis settings such as button visibility and overlay transparency to improve your gaming experience without interfering with gameplay. The app allows you to toggle these settings on the fly.

Step 7: Use Mantis Advanced Features

The Mantis app also offers a virtual mouse and keyboard which can be useful for guiding through game menus or typing. Access these features by long-pressing the Mantis icon during gameplay.

Tips for Enhanced Gameplay

  • Regularly adjust the gamepad layout as per your comfort.
  • Use the stylus for precise control placement if your fingers obscure the view or leave smudges.
  • Remember that some game functions might still require interaction with the touchscreen.

Panda Gamepad Pro

Step 1: Preparing Your Equipment

First, make sure your PS4 controller is ready to be paired with your mobile device. You’ll also need to have the Panda Gamepad Pro app installed on your device. Note that Panda Gamepad Pro requires activation and permissions to use the PS4 controller with your game.

Step 2: Enabling USB Debugging and Wireless Debugging

  1. Activate USB Debugging: Go to your device’s Developer Options to turn on USB Debugging. This setting allows the Panda Gamepad Pro app to communicate with your controller.
  2. Enable Wireless Debugging: Also in Developer Options, find and enable Wireless Debugging. This allows the connection to be established without needing a physical USB cable.

Step 6: Mapping Your Controls

Before launching into a game, the app will let you map the game controls to your PS4 controller:

  • Movement: Use the left analog stick for character navigation.
  • Sprint Skill: Assign this to R2 for quick access, enabling rapid in-game movement.
  • Attacking and Skills: You can map various abilities like “Barbarian Swing” or “El Primo” to buttons like R1, allowing you to execute attacks efficiently.

Step 7: Entering Squad Busters

Now, with the game added and controls configured, open “Squad Busters” through the Panda Gamepad Pro interface. This ensures that the game runs with the control mappings you’ve set.

You’re now ready to play “Squad Busters” with your PS4 controller.


Playing “Squad Busters” with a controller is straightforward with the help of the Mantis Gamepad Pro app. It eliminates the need for direct touch controls and improves your overall gaming experience on mobile devices.
