How do I find apps com­pat­i­ble with older iOS ver­sions?

Apps on the App Store state the min­i­mum ver­sion of iOS needed to run, but there’s no way for you to fil­ter search re­sults to show only those that work with a spe­cific ver­sion. How­ever, find­oldapps.com will let you search back as far as iOS 3.1.3. Each re­sult links back to the App Store, so it’s easy for you to in­stall the de­sired app di­rectly.

Is there an iPad joy­stick cab­i­net I can buy in­stead?

Yes! At least there used to be. Ion Au­dio doesn’t make the iCade any­more, but you can still find re­fur­bished mod­els eas­ily on eBay for around £40. It uses Blue­tooth to com­mu­ni­cate with the iPad, and has eight but­tons and a joy­stick. The Mid­way Ar­cade app gained iCade com­pat­i­bil­ity in 2012.
