Doesn't save progress...

This app is pointless if it won't save your progress in a game. The moment you back out of the app, all of your progress is gone, even if you hit save in the game itself. When you open a game the first time, I'm taken to my desktop and I have to open the game again for it to actually load. In the past, you used to be able to browse for new games within the app, now it just opens your browser and loads a google search for roms. This app has gone WAY downhill.

Doesn't open ROMs

Gives an error every time I try to open ROMs I've used in other emulators (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)

Could be better

Needs to add support for USB Nintendo Pad.

No Save

It would be awesome if you could save. What is the point of playing a game you can't save. Its pointless

Not perfect but good.

The directional controls feel flimsy using the touch-screen, but otherwise it's a pretty good emulator.

Almost Perfect

It plays most games flawlessly. It's better about audio than SNES8x+. However, as of this review, it still does not support two Xbox USB controllers for MultiPlayer support. Sorry player 2, NOT ON THIS EMULATOR. SNES8X+ does, in fact, support more players. However, SNES8X+ (the other snes emulator worth a darn on the MS Store) sometimes lags certain audio elements (IE: Rock n' Roll racing, the narrator voice skips words, now and then). Also, certain x360 buttons on the other emulator will doubletime the game. Some may like that to skip through parts quickly, but I'm often hitting those buttons by accident, and it's annoying LOL. NESBOX doesn't do that nonsense from the controller, thankfully. Also, NESBOX plays NES and SNES in the same application, where SNES8X+ only plays SNES. I have both for when I play Secret of Mana with my wife, else I use NESBOX for all single player gaming. GAME ON!

Needs 2-player, Game Genie support, and better UI.
