It’s time for a game review again.
Let’s have a look at Snes4iphone 1.0.0

Snes4iphone is still in beta phase but imho it’s just fantastic.
This is a very nice emu’s, not the best, but still very nice.

The guys of have done an excellent job once again.

In this version you can play horizontally and vertically, i prefer the vertical layout as it’s easier to see your playfield.

There’s still 1 small problem, and that’s the sound. If you activate it via the options, most of your games will run slow and the sound is garbled.

However the games are perfectly playable without sound!

Let me explain via screens.

1) Install the application. Do install the version from ZODTTTD as that one is alway the most recent.

2) After installation you need to install a rom onto your iPhone.
You can do this via WinSCP on windoze or FUGU on mac.
Howto upload files on your iPhone will be explained later in another tutorial.
For now, please create the directory’s ROMs and SNES (they are case-sensitive!)

for Firmware lower then 1.1.3 in /var/root/Media/ROMs/SNES/
for Firmware higher or equal to 1.1.3 in /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/SNES/

You can find a lot of roms for on this and this site.

3) Let’s launch the app and have a look at the options. The options let you choose Transparency, landscape view and mute sound(recommended to leave it ON or your game will be very slugish).
The advanced options let you choose the skipping of frames, the options to delete roms, the skin and enable the scaling.

4) Let’s play a game by tapping one of the roms. After you have chosen your game, it will load instantly and you don’t have to wait like with the segagenesis.
I’ve tested Final Fantasy II for you, the gameplay is fast and doesn’t have hickups, but i wasn’t able to get any sound out of it.

5) If you like you can go to the options and activate the landscape view. Personally i don’t like to play like that as my fingers will block half of the playscreen, but this is up to you :)

This little app is available in the through the ZODTTD packaging source, see our sources page.

That’s it for now :)
