This app is great. Easiest ROM transfers I've ever done. The sound and frame rate are amazing!

Great with little to be desired. Very customizable buttons, position, size and transparency are all options. All games I have played run great with no crashing. There is only one issue, but its a rare one. Seemingly randomly, and even so its only specific games, the music becomes distorted then stops playing completely. It's constant on Earthbound in particular, but restarting the app fixes it for a while.

Very nice emulator, works great mostly for rpg's but that's because touch screen controls aren't easy to use for precision action type games like most old school games but all rom's work fine. OneDrive import roms work fine I believe you need it unzipped though and export saves files works too but it exports as a .zip file, haven't tried import save files yet but I expect it to work ok.

Well, I cant get any games because it always says it has an import error when I try to get it off my web browser, but it probably works.

Sound cutss off in the middle of the gameplay

It is a very nice app. The only fatal flaw. Is that the sound stops in the middle of the gameplay... Why would i wanna play without sound... -.-




Platform: Mobile

I used to love this app...

... but after installing it on my new Lumia 950 the sound started to cut off a few minutes into gameplay. I tried re-installing everything. Nothing helps. Will update this review back to a five when they fix the sound bug. Btw, the ROMs work fine on other emulators on my phone.

Needs ABI and API updates for Win10.

The layout for the on-screen buttons is completely broken on Windows 10 making the emulator unusable. If this can be fixed, then please do.
