Really good, but kinda frustrating. The interface and functionality are almost flawless, but the control pad is incredibly annoying with a massive dead spot in the center. It can kinda be alleviated by making the pad smaller, but I still can't get it where it needs to be. Diagonals are nearly impossible. I think an octagon hit box would help tremendously. Also, the gun feature is useless. The mapping is off or something, it's virtually impossible to land a hit. Kudos for the rest though!

Great emulator. Runs ROMs just fine along with the cheats. I also love the sort of 'Indiglo' digital design and being able to see a preview of your game's save state with an indiglo filter as well. I've seen some reviews about issues with the controls, which may or may not have been fixed by now; to me, it's probably just a little tricky trying to use the d-pad quickly. 5 stars nonetheless; definitely recommend this emulator. 👍

First off you need to DL the ROMs, which I like because I end up having only the games I want to play. I like the customizable layout, so I can adjust it more for my hands/fingers. I will probably buy the pro version. I would like to see the developer make a SNES emulator. Also, their email won't work for me. Not worth losing a star over since it's not related to the app quality or functionality. But still a bit annoying.
