This is the best emulator for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Play old classics like Super Mario Bros, Tetris, Pacman, etc. (You will need to download the game roms.) It's something about playing these old gems, love the 8 bit music haha! Runs well on old or new devices. Save your progress anywhere at anytime, something that was impossible on NES. Also works good with bluetooth controllers like 8bitdo N30 for example. A must have for retro gamers!

Only emulator that had scanlines, so absolutely worth it: that said, compared to Nostalgia Pro and John NESS, this one has (ever so-slight) clip to the audio once every 20 seconds or so very minorly. Can't figure out how to get it more matched to the original 60.0988 fps of the original NES, it always rounds to 60.1, which sounds worse than 60, though never had the minor 'blip' sound in the others. But, apart from that, absolutely worth it.

The .emu emulators have been my favorite android and mac emulators for years. They have nearly every feature I want, with the biggest exception of control over the app's volume (I'd prefer to have an option between this app being muted or full blast while I play audio from other apps). If a volume slider were added, these apps would be about as close to perfection as I could ever want.
