New Game Boy emulator for Windows Phone 7 coming

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2011

Samuel Blanchard is showing off a Game Boy Pocket Color emulator for Windows Phone 7. That’s right, the Windows Phone 7 platform will soon let you play all of the old classics that you love from the Nintendo device.

The app doesn’t yet come with flash RAM management and backup features, so it won’t be good to play a game like Pokemon with this, though games like Tetris will be good. We love us some old school Nintendo.

Sega Dreamcast Emulator for Android Smartphones

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2010

Looking for some retro gaming on your Android Smartphone? Well, you’re in luck. A new Sega Dreamcast Emulator is currently in development for the Android OS. It’s still in the early stages of development, but it shouldn’t be very long before you are playing the classics on your Android phone.

Can you believe its been 11 years since the Sega Dreamcast was first launched? It was the first console to include a built-in modem and Internet support for online play. Sadly, it was discontinued a few years later, but remains a favorite of many gamers.

Flashboy Plus Virtual Boy Emulator

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on August 26th, 2010

The homebrew community is giving some love to Nintendo’s Virtual Boy. The Flashboy Plus is the second of two flash carts for Nintendo’s original stereoscopic system, featuring a new backup battery and 16Mbits of memory. That’s enough to fit any one of the system’s 22 commercially released games.

The battery only keeps one save stored at a time and there’s no way to read the battery-backed memory, so you’ll still have to finish one game before you start another, but you won’t lose your progress every time you shut down.

Hot Touch Arcade Pinball Emulator

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2010

Pinball emulators are usually running on a PC, but if you are the crafty type, you can do what this guy did and create a 1/3-scale pinball machine called the Hot Touch Arcade. The emulator is in the pinball machine itself and powered by an Intel Atom processor.

There’s also an NVIDIA graphics card, and it runs on Windows XP. The actual pinball game area is displayed on a 19-inch 16:9 LCD display, and it includes a physical shooter, flipper buttons, and a coin slot. Pretty nice!

Letcool handheld console emulator

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2010

The Letcool handheld emulator sort of looks like a Nintendo DS Lite with no top display. Must have been hard to design this one. This odd handheld can handle GBA, NES, SNES, Sega Genesis and Game Boy ROMs, and future updates will also include additional support for others.

The Letcool can also double as a portable media player, playing nice with 8 different audio formats and 10 video formats. Despite the name, you don’t need to let it cool. We think. Some other features include TV-out, 4GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, a digital camera and a battery life of 6 hours. Only $70.

iPhone 3GS gets a Nintendo N64 emulator

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on November 3rd, 2009

iPhone 3GS gets a Nintendo N64 emulatorZodttd is a developer working on a N64 emulator for the iPhone 3GS. Will it have the power? Possibly, thanks to CPU, GPU and OpenGL ES 2.0 support that will deliver smooth N64 emulation. But don’t get too excited.

Some high-end N64 titles might not be available due to the lack of power. The other issue would be the control scheme. Some of us hated the N64’s controller and found the games hard enough to play originally. The iPhone won’t be any better.

NES Emulator Cartridge casemod

NES Emulator Cartridge casemodA complete NES in a cartridge. This NES cartridge casemod holds a complete library of NES games, uses the original buttons, resides inside the Super Mario/Duck Hunt combo cartridge. Awesomeness? I think so.

But that isn’t all it does. It’s also an mp3 player, movie player and an FM radio receiver. It also features video out so that you can play on the big screen if you want. If only the NES had been this small originally.


Apple approves Commodore 64 emulator for iPhone

Apple rejects Commodore 64 emulator for the iPhoneWell, it took awhile, but Apple has finally approved the C64 emulator for the iPhone. It’s the first officially-available emulator and the first app that runs code. That code is old, but still. It was the code that was the problem, due to a clause in the iPhone 2.0 SDK that prevented apps from containing their own executable codes.

But iPhone 3.0 contains a new feature for in-app purchases that the C64 emulator will take advantage of to let users purchase additional games. You can get the app now with five games for only $4.99.

Ti-boy: Ti-84 calculator Game Boy emulator

Posted in Calculators by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2009

Ti-boy: Ti-84 calculator Game Boy emulatorAre you a fan of Texas Instruments’ graphing calculators? Well, now the TI-83+SE, TI-84+ and TI-84+SE calculators can do more than make calculations. Now they can play Nintendo Game Boy games thanks to Brendan Fletcher’s emulator known as TI-Boy SE.

It runs on TI’s Z-80 based graphing calculators thanks to similarities between the CPUs of the two systems. The emulator includes three zoom modes, two sprite tracking modes, grayscale or black-and-white palettes, two-channel sound and even the ability to save and load games. For now, only Tetris, Zelda: Link’s Awakening and Kirby and homebrew titles are supported, but I’m sure it will get better.

Apple rejects Commodore 64 emulator for the iPhoneCheck this out. A fully-functional, licensed Commodore 64 emulator for the iPhone. Pretty sweet. But sadly, Apple rejected the app “based on the SDK clause specifically prohibiting interpreted or executable code.” Lame.

The app would have played classic games and even run Commodore 64 BASIC. The full list of features are as follows: Full speed, Commodore 64 emulator, SID sound emulation, Auto-save, to continue exactly where you left off, Realistic joystick and beautifully crafted C64 keyboard, Portrait and Landscape play, Vertical and Fullscreen gaming (auto rotate for iPod users).

Game-800 pocket emulatorThis media player does it all. It will crank out music, videos and pictures, but it’ll also play your favorite old school video games. The device features a 320×240 LCD screen and has a software emulator on board that lets it play NES, Famicom, GameBoy, GameBoy Color and Sega Mega Drive games.

There’s even a text-to-speech eBook reader that can read any TXT file out loud in Chinese or English. Oh and a handy digital camera too, which must be low quality. You’ll get 4GB of onboard storage, which can be expanded up to 8GB total using an SD memory card.

Retro Duo NES & SNES emulator
Some of us have an obsession with Classic Nintendo games, more specifically the NES and SNES systems. But a lot of nerds gamers don’t like to use their actual precious cartridges since they reside in a shrine somewhere in their mother’s closet. If that’s the case, this will do the trick.

It is both a NES and SNES emulator in one butt ugly console, that will play most titles and Super Famicom games. Plus it’s compatible with the original SNES controllers. Features standard AV RCA sockets,S-Video, and Famicom cartridges will work without adaptors. They’re working on original NES controllers and a light gun to work, too. It will cost you $45.99.
