I was extremely hesitant to pay for this as I've been unable to get the neogeo.zip and assocaited rom set to work with the latest version of MAME (2.06). I ultimately just wanted to run Neo Geo on my android, where I have my Sega Genesis and SNES emulators, and I so I took a chance with this. I was really surprised to see that it worked immediately, all I had to do was transfer over the roms and most of them work. There are a few exceptions, maybe 30% of the ones I've tried so far don't work and result in some error indicating that some file is missing but most of them do. Growing up with the original Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Game Boy and SNES I always wanted to play games on Neo Geo but never could and the thing was extremely rare owing to how expensive it was. All I can say is WOW, if I had seen the quality of these titles when I was younger I would have been BLOWN completely away. This app works great, there is some slowdown with my phone, Samsung Galaxy S7, but that's to be par for the course with emulation. Maybe a brand new $800 Galaxy S9 or equivalent can run it but yeah, it's not that bad, and I'm not even sure it's not how the slow down was with the original Neo Geo

I had been looking for a neo geo emulator for at least a month. On each game. Half of my games wouldn't work, and the controls were bonkers. When ai launched the system, it was able to tell me rhe issue right off and now I can play all of them. I love the .EMU series, but this one was especially good for a complex console.

Doesn't work with retroid launcher, which is very disappointing. Paid for it but can't use it correctly. It does play some games that reteoarch can't, but it's not usable with a launcher so I'll keep using retroarch.
