About this game

MasterGear emulates MasterSystem, GameGear, and other classic 8bit consoles made by Sega. It runs MasterSystem and GameGear games right on your Android phone or tablet. Save game progress at any time and share it with friends, or play games together on the network. MasterGear also runs Mark2, Mark3, SG1000, SC3000, and SF7000 games and other software.

* Specifically optimized for Android devices, using assembly language and hardware acceleration to run as fast as possible.
* Supports full screen landscape and portrait modes, with many special effect options.
* Save game play at any point and go back to that point once your character gets killed.
* Share your current position in a game with other users via State Exchange feature.
* Play with other users over local network or Internet via NetPlay feature.
* Play with your hardware keyboard, gamepad, touch screen, or accelerometer.
* Supports ARM-based GoogleTV devices, such as LG G2/G3.
* Supports Bluetooth gamepads, Xperia Play special buttons, iCade, Sixaxis, and Moga gamepads.
* Record soundtrack to MIDI files.

MasterGear package itself does not contain any games. You should place your own game files onto the SD card before running MasterGear.

Please, do not run any software you do not own with MasterGear. The author cannot and will not tell you where to find free MasterSystem or GameGear games.

Amazingly thought out, works with on screen or controller out if the box. Auto save feature is VERY useful. Only thing that could make it better is skins around the screen (like the game gear). Keep up the fantastic work!

As an avid retro gamer who has invested a lot of time into emulation over the years, this is definitely worth every penny; the best Game Gear/Master System emulator out there, by far! Forget the likes of RetroArch and Nostalgia.GG and just buy this. Take note that the developers latest update was in February 2022 and the emulator was released 11 years ago. That says a lot in itself. One very happy customer! :)

Missing features that I wish were here: 1.) Set the app's volume level independent of other apps 2.) Increase font size so that button labels are legible on my phone (pixel2) 3.) Hide all unused buttons 4.) Manually add boxart to the game list, since the app only found the art for one of my games. 5.) Add custom overlay and button graphics 6.) If UI and Button customization improves, I'd like to be able to backup my layout

1) Not a good thing with Android, it really assumes common volume; 2) There are alternative skins with bigger labels (Settings | Input | Edit Joystick); 3) All the currently shown buttons are used; 4) This is possible, just supply your own box art PNGs renaming them to *.box; 5) Also possible right away; 6) Not sure what you mean here.

What's new

* Another fix to gamepad assignments to keyboard keys.
* Now showing folder name in the title instead of complete path.
* Now disabling keyboard options if there is no keyboard.
