About this game

NOTE:

This version is meant for devices that have Android 8.0 or higher installed. As a result, it supports over double the amount of cores (127) as the regular version (50).

If you'd like the full-fat RetroArch version with a working Core Downloader, go to our website www.retroarch.com, and download the APK for your system there.

RetroArch is an open-source project that makes use of a powerful development interface called Libretro. Libretro is an interface that allows you to make cross-platform applications that can use rich features such as OpenGL, cross-platform camera support, location support, and more in the future.

This is a special 64bit version of RetroArch, for those with 64bit capable devices!

This is the best version of RetroArch if your phone supports it (64-bit, Android 8+). It works mostly very well and it's easier to use than you might think or might expect. On the downside, if you leave it inactive for too long, it will reboot and you'll lose your place, so save early and save often. In any case, you're probably better off getting the current nightly versions on GitHub than from here: versions on app stores have been out of date for one year (Play Store) to two years (F-Droid).

The app works wonderfully. However the devs have a very particular way in which they expect the users to use the software. It will take a bit more of a learning curve than other emulators to learn how to set everything up optimally. Once you do though, youre golden. Other than that Retroarch has a problem of randomly closing when backgrounded although some say its an issue with Androids battery management software. I dont have this happen with other emulators though which has me skeptical.

Most people will be put off by how complicated the app seems, but with time you learn what's going on. With this app you can play most systems that can be emulated on Android with a lot of settings allowing you to customize your experience. If that was all I had to say I'd say it's a 5, however the only issue is that for higher end emulation, look elsewhere. My device can run GameCube, but through retroarch I can't play ds at full speed.
