This is a great emulator, but I can't seem to use ROMs of homebrew games or remove ROMs from the list. Fix these, and I'll give 5 stars!!!

App never worked for me!

Based on the other reviews, I am getting quite jealous. After the couple updates, I could never get this app to load on my Windows 8 machine OR my Surface RT. It tries to load, then crashes. No menus or anything. Maybe it's a bug with settings my live account carries over after I first purchased? Nothing I do works. Please fix!

With a Surface, a USB hub and two XBOX controllers, you can play with a friend! Just be sure to select the second player's input as the second controller. To do so, tap the settings button (the gear) in the top left of the screen, tap the Input button until it says "Input for P2", then press F2 (on the Surface keyboard, hold down the Fn button and press the Volume Down button on the keyboard).

Great but lacking. If the frame rate could be really adjusted (it only accepts up to a 5fps adjustment), allowing the game to run at a decent speed, I would rate this a solid 5. But as it is, I give it 3 stars just for the trip down memory lane. Please fix this!

Pretty cool but really really slow on all games. And the controls need to be fixed. Would give 5 stars if that were fixed :-D

Needs some work, game compatibility, installing my own roms, standard d-pad controller, and better FPS especially with sound. When those things are added/fixed I will change to 5 stars.

The 7800 and 2600 were right before my time, but I love emulated games, and unlike most more complicated systems and their games, these play wonderfully with touch controls.
