I’ve already discussed some emulators but i haven’t yet talked about the NES emu for the iPhone / iPod Touch.

In contradiction to all my previous emulator reviews, this one actually works perfectly.

I just finished playing some Super Mario Bros3 ( a game i loved to play when i was a little kid), and damn this emu is good !!

There’s not very much to tell so let’s just jump to the installation and all the info you guys/girls wanna know.

1) To install go to the games section in your installer. And chose NEW v 2.0.5-1.

2) After you have installed the app, upload upload a ROM to /var/(mobile or root depending on firmware)/Media/ROMs/NES/

Roms can be found here or here.

Please make sure you own the original games !!!!

Upload the roms + the bios via WinSCP or FUGU for mac.

For a howto upload + download files on your iPhone or iPod touch, go here .

2) Let’s run the app after installation. You will see a Splash-screen, just click ok here.
For this example i used Super Mario Bros3.
The game works perfectly with the default settings, but you can always tweak some options in the settings page. If you want you can always save your game, so you can start again where you left off.

Like i already told you, this emu is as good as it gets.

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