    emulator If you pay once you're going to pay again was the best ds app at on time. Switching over to ones I've only paid once for.

    android This emulator is amazing and plays smoothly with no lags like the other emulators. I can play all the Ben 10 ds games because I am a huge Ben 10 fan. But there is one issue. So if you get the demo, you are timed and you can't save your data unless you get the full version. Also, when the timer ends, you have to start all over. I can't get the full version because I don't have money. Really, this emulator is amazing. I have been looking for months trying to find an emulator that plays smoothly with no lags, and this is obviously the chosen one. But all I want you guys to do is update it and get rid of the timer and let us save because there are some people who can't pay but can't have the data they got far on erased. Mostly for us kids, because us kids don't have jobs. Hope you can fix that problem. Thanks.

    games download I was able to play Pokemon Platinum flawlessly! Well done, theres no lag! But...I do have one small problem. I have almost finished Ace Attorney in another emulator, and I was wondering if the data there could be transferred here? (That other emulator had some problems.its another app here on google play btw) If that's possible, great! Im planning to buy the full version soon! This is the best DS emulator!

  6. Arisa Miyako-avatar

    Arisa Miyako


    apk This is by far the best emulator for Android. However it is lacking dldi support needed for homebrew. There is a workaround involving rooted phones but not worth the effort to use homebrew. Until this support is added and it can run software like Moonshell I will not be buying. Instead I will buy a new DS Lite and a Flashcart again.

  7. Nick Casale-avatar

    download The emulator runs smooth, however when I tried playing the full version I bought, it gave me an error code. So I tried clearing the cache, didn't work. Then it said to try uninstalling the app, but when I uninstalled it the store won't let me reinstall it without paying again. Emulator runs great, but apparently I ran into a bug or something.

  8. Cur Dee-avatar

    Cur Dee


    apk download I just played 30 minutes of pokemon platinum. As it will be one of the only few games I wil be playing on this emunlator, I was sure to try it out. The game ran flawlessly, no lag in game or sound running on Galaxy S6. My only negative thought and reason for 4 star rating was the button layout, specifically the directional pad. Going from one direction to another did not work all that great. Id be walking left, and change to go up by sliding my finger, and it would hold left down and continue that way.

  9. The Galactic Void-avatar

    The Galactic Void


    version This is the best emulator for Android. It works flawlessly. Most other emulators lag even with frame skip 9. This one doesn't lag at all if you have a decent phone. They were generous to give you 30 minutes of play time with this emulator. Within those 30 minutes, I looked at the amazing features that the demo version alone has given me. One problem though. I found out that you cannot save on the demo. So if you want to try it out and then buy the premium version, don't try it for too long.

    full version free download Great job with the app guys it works wonders for me and i love it 100%! This app works just as good as the DSI; if not better in my opinion! You see my DSI was glitchy and froze my games very often to the point where i could not advance in my games at all. I love this app it is a life saver and lets me reconecct with all my favorite games for free! Totally buying the full version! Once again great job Drastic team!

    I am person who and okay


    It's good. I just can't play Metroid Prime Hunters multi-card play repeatedly. After entering multi-card play, whether I play a game or exit after clicking "Create Game", the wifi symbol never goes away but in short, clicking "Start Game" after setting up a game doesn't work. That's after the error. If I reset the game, and start multi-card without exiting, I can play a match but only once. The only other purpose this app has for me is Metroid Prime Pinball. Which works fine.

  12. Tyrell Haxton-avatar

    Tyrell Haxton


    To everyone complaining about it not saving, THIS IS A DEMO not a complete app. It's to let you test before you pay for the app people. And it's the only DS emulator that isn't slow as all get out, trust me I tried everyone on the play store, this is by far the best on the market, no contest at all.

  13. Lucas Sayles-avatar

    I Love this emulator its sick best on face of earth coz its fine but does it connect to DS' And Other Phones. And how do I Move buttons, On Mario kart I keep losing coz I can't master ur buttons so add this I'll rate 5 star

    I want to try this emulator. I have used many ems in the past on my phone or otherwise. I downloaded the demo to see if I liked it and downloaded a favorite game of mine. the file is in my downloads but try as I might the app doesnt see my rom at all :/ please help. I really wanna try your app!!

  15. Ivan Suarez-avatar

    Ivan Suarez


    Yeah I gave five stars.. Don't want to give a low rating just because you dont have a free full version of this. and that is the major flaw.. Many of the gamers are aged 12-20 (I think) so they dont have jobs. Im not telling you to make the full version of game free.. Its your credits.. But just allow the savestate in this version.. Thanks

  16. Thirdy Bon Pavia-avatar

    Thirdy Bon Pavia


    But the problem is the full version I can't get this because I have to pay, there is a 30 minute time limit saved games are not supported. If the full version would be free to download then I can access to nds games. Still it is a good emu. No lags, Fast and Smooth, I will be waiting for a free full version...😀

  17. Ross Yañez-avatar

    Ross Yañez


    Guys this has a limit of 30 minutes of game play as this is a demo version. However, the timer restarts when you restart the app but you cannot save progress. I hope that it is clear for every idiot here rating the app low due to obvious demo limitations. The full version is worth it.

  18. John Simmonds-avatar

    John Simmonds


    This is a great demo of a paid app. It's shows how good this emulator is. When I can I will be purchasing the full app to use with ipega controller. I don't understand why people are rating this low for not being able to save or play for longer than 30 mins. It's a Demo and demonstrates the full app very well. Hence 5 stars.

  19. Sam Jepson-avatar

    Sam Jepson


    Testing out the demo before I buy the full version. Runs very smoothly on my S6, I love that you can edit the layout of the screens and controls. My only issue is that I can't lock the screen rotation despite my phone being set that way - I like my screen to remain portrait when I'm laid on the bed! Other than that, fantastic app!

    I recently tried to run a DS backup on RetroArch, but it lagged no matter what settings I changed. I then decided to try a dedicated DS emulator and this one is really great! No lag at all and the customization options are amazing! The only problem? I have no money.

  21. Allen Yu-avatar

    Allen Yu


    Nice and I tried Puzzle Quest and it works with no lag. It's only a lite version and can't be save state, save game, cheats and more of disadvantages. It has a 30 mins of playtime. I hope I will buy a drastic full version sometime ☺☺☺

  22. Bo Sheetz-avatar

    Bo Sheetz


    You're not SUPPOSED to be able to save, it's to allow you to see how it works on your device. Other than that it runs smoothly and by far the best one I could find. Once I get a Google play card I'm buying this.

  23. Cam-avatar



    Sure, it seems to be the only one for Android that actually works without wishing for death. It is, however, complete highway robbery. If I may suggest? Don't bother giving any money to something that, from what I've read, isn't actually any better than the buggy demo. No emulator is worth that

    Testing out the game first before purchasing is a good idea, but i found some lag problems on playing pokemon black. My new phone lags but i saw other lower versions of android is faster than my phone. Please help resolve the lag at my phone its a zenfone 2 android ver. 5.0 lollipop x86. I will buy this app if its fixed on my phone and rate 5 star. Thank You

    The savestates don't work if i tap it it says i have to buy the paid version i like the emulator a lot but it wont save so i cant play very well i can play games but i cant save them which is bad so i hope they fix this in the future but for now i will just have to wait..{:-( and it is still not working why does the savestates dont work

  26. Anthony Schabel-avatar

    Anthony Schabel


    I was unsure if a DS emulator on my phone could handle the games I wanted to play, but this was an easy way to try it out before spending. Luckily I can get away with one button press on the right side for the game I wanted to play as that seems to be a possible problem. Be cauious of that though and try it yourself before you buy.

  27. Code Gamer-avatar

    Code Gamer


    This demo runs very smoothly but...it didn't save my game at all, as in I lost all of my progress. That coupled with a 30 minute limit makes this very unreliable. But this IS a demo, so limits are to be expected. All in all, if I had the money, I'd invest in the full version.

  28. Zer0 Studioz-avatar

    Zer0 Studioz


    This is definitely better than any of the other NDS emulators I've used. Very fast, and quite reliable. But this is the demo, so not all the features are in place, such as cheats and save states. I recommend testing this before buying the full version. I know I'll be buying it when I have the funds.

  29. Mike McMillan-avatar

    Mike McMillan


    To all those people complaining that you cannot save, realize this: THAT IS THE POINT! Otherwise, you could just play 30 minutes at a time, save, and start the game back up for another free 30 minutes. Nobody would ever buy the full version. (As a side note, this is the best emulator that I have found for the ds.) No lag.

  30. Logan Cha-avatar

    Logan Cha


    Definitely the best DS emulator there is. It's like playing a regular DS but better and faster. I'm definitely paying for the full version later on. I just hope in game saves work. I get that this is a demo so it's not really supposed to work but I'm still wondering about the full version

  31. Utpal Parajuli-avatar

    Utpal Parajuli


    first of all, keep in mind this is a DEMO so all you get is 30 mins of play, then game restarts. Broke my ds so wanted to try this app. I'm very impressed! Really smooth in comparison to the other ds emulators out there. Some games, such as mariokart or Mario 64 ds are pretty hard to play with on screen buttons but I was happy to learn that the app is compatible with external controllers. I connected my dualshock 4 (by Bluetooth) and the experience was way better. Buying full version let's u use cheat codes

  32. Damon Kerry-avatar

    Damon Kerry


    This app is amazing. It has no lag unlike all the other apps that I tried. One thing that I dislike is that the paid version is to much money. Can u please lower the price to $0.99-$3.00. Over all this is a good app with no lag or crashing issues.

  33. Francis Robles-avatar

    Francis Robles


    I try the demo because i want to buy the full version. I tried Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 2 , it detects the game but when i try to open the game , it hangs. Please tell me what is the problem , is it the game or the demo? I really want to play that game and im willing to buy the full version , however the game is not working please fix dev.

    This is a test for the full version. I tried all other emulators, this is the only one that opens my Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded. If you want to play very well buy the full, you don't need all these cheats. If you want it free this is the best you can get. Sadly it obly lets you play for a limoted time so you need to be quick.

    Best NDS for android out there. Fastest, and graphics look clean and smooth. Altho, you only get 30 minutes per game, but it restarts when the app does. When I get a phew spare bucks, I'll buy the full version.

  38. Faith aka tehkittykate-avatar

    Faith aka tehkittykate


    I don't understand why people are so upset that you cant save in the DEMO version what would be the point of the full version if you could just save and quit the app then come right back and continue the game? The whole point of the demo is to TRY out the emulator to see if it works before you buy the full version. I give it five stars

    Obviously, this is a demo. Its to show that the purchaseable full version works (in case your phone has problems opening it). If you want saves or cheat codes or to play a full game, buy the app or find a free emulator for your computer. It's worth the money, and that's why there's a free demo: to confirm before buying.

  43. Stephen Fielding-avatar

    Stephen Fielding


    Don't like the graphics plugins. They're all bad rendering when using a tablet and setting it to 1 screen. Gba graphics plugins are way better. Other than that it's the best user friendly version. Won't be buying full version until you get better graphics plugins.

    It might not be able to save data. It might not be able to use cheats. It might not use the time limit. But at least it's free and doesn't lag. So there really no need to complain. Thanks, Exophase! Note to people: There is a way to download it for free.

    Awesome. Everything is okay and fine..the smooth emulator ever. But 1 thing for sure.. if this emulator can multiplayer or trade using such as bluetooth or wifi. It will be even great. Believe me many people will buy it. As for me, i also will wait until this emulator can multiplayer. Believe me MULTIPLAYER

    Well well, color me impressed. My tablet is notorious for being laggy, but even with high resolution 3d turned on, the lag here is virtually nonexistent. You sir have ended my search for portable DS emulation. Take my money, you've earned it.

    It'd a great app the games run much smoother than free emulators. Think about buying full thing for such great work *edit* fps counter would be very useful could you please add one **for other reviewers** DO NOT give 1 star because you can't save. That is the point of a demo

  54. Master Gamer-avatar

    Master Gamer


    Would be a 5 star. I've been looking for a fast DS emulator and I found it. BUT it's almost not worth it cuz I'll press the dpad and I'll accidentally touch the touch screen. EDIT:you guys updated for a similar problem on the actual Drastic,BUT I'm talking more of pushing touch screen accidentally instead of dpad, causing me to pause the game. I'd like the feature of switching between touch mode and controls mode, along with a setting to disable touching while in controls mode. Commonly used, except on this

    Drastic won't show any folder or files, and will not allow me to navigate at all. It has all the permissions it needs but is just a blank page. Once this gets sorted out I'll change to a 5 star and buy the program.

    this is the best ds app i have ever found first of all there is no lag in the game all other ds apps were laggy i think this is the only ds app i have ever seen that isn't laggy and the controls sound pretty not mention it works like a charm i like the demo because it gives someone like me to see if the app is worth my time and it is i will definitely buy the full version in the future and i recommend this app to everyone

    Marc Dominique


    Some comments are so dumb. Special about crash and save . clearly don't understand it's a demo. I I'll be buying it. I've tried the other emulators(free). But this is the only one that can work smoothly, I hoped the free emulator was gonna work the same. But this is really above when it comes to performance. The others are not even play able and so laggy in 3d games. Don't believe? Try this and compare. The only issue is the control and touch screen overlap. Add *touch* bottom like the other emulators

    My phone runs slowly but is problem of the phone xD However I have a question. I played pokemon diamond, and reached the 4 or 5 town/city, then I saved the game and leave it. But my cuestion is because I saved about 7 times, close the app, open it later and my saves are there!!! I don't understand it, everyone says that there's no saves because it's a demo, so..., can you please explain this to me? Suddenly, the app starts to denied the saves and runs like others say: With no saves. What happened then?

  65. Tony Hume-avatar

    Tony Hume


    Tried the demo with a view to getting the paid version, it starts but with no way to load the games, not proceeding any further. No obvious way to change the load directory, not in settings, not in FAQ not on YouTube. When you have to go this far to try to get a demo to load games, you have a problem. Disappointing.

    I really, really, really loved this until my save got deleted when the time ran out. you could have just said times up ya can't use it... unfortunately can't afford to buy premium and I'm really upset. it truly is an amazing emulator. I'm just sorta upset now. I understand it is a demo but you didnt have to delete my whole save.

    Excuse the hyperbolic statement, but it's true. This is the very best DS emulator you can get. Well, the full version, anyway. This emulator is actually it's own thing and it runs flawlessly, unlike every other DS emulator I've tried which were all carbon-copies of each other and lagged to appalling levels. Didn't exactly want to buy an emulator, but frankly £3.75 is perfectly acceptable when actual copies of Pokemon SoulSilver run for around £40.

    I can't believe what ppl here are saying in the reviews. This app is a DEMO meaning YOU DOWNLOAD IT TO SEE IF YOU WANT TO BUY THE FULL VERSION!!! Yes you can only play each game 30 min before it resets but this is to TEST to see if it works well on your system and if you want the full version. It's a shame ppl don't realise this. The emulator is wonderful and deserves 5 stars by far. I've seen barely any problems, the only one being the touchscreen isn't very good on my system, though it's prolly my phone.

    you would think it would tell you how to load a rom in the help menu. but no. ive used others no problem but this basically says f u you're on your own. too frustrating to enjoy

    I had a minor issue when trying to customize the control interface, but I can forgive that because of how otherwise flawless this emulator is. Totally bought the paid. Great job.

    It's a great tried all the others they all just lagged but this one worked perfectly some minor audio issues and please let me save the game at least on the free version

  73. SilencedPistol-avatar



    These other descriptions are vague. It gives you 30 mins to play and it exits you out. I know its just a demo BUT WHO IN THE WORLD IS GONNA PAY 6 BUCKS. BULLCRAP. Gameplay wise its just like the normal game. 😊(This is DraStic Scaming people.)🔫(This is me to DraStic)

    The one annoyance is that it is not up to date, which means it may an inaccurate representation of the full. The full version is the best. No other ds emulators like it. At least not on android. Don't know about PC.

    Google play store will not let me buy the full version of this app. Everytime I try it says unfortunately googleplaystore has stopped. Then crashes the play store. Everything else is working fine I can purchase any thing else I want no problem. Won't let me buy this at all. Plz help

  77. John Gonzales-avatar

    John Gonzales


    You can't save nothing on the free version... if they could change that it would be a whole lot better.... you play Roms for no reason on this app theres no reason to keep playing the beginning of every game over an over... you should at least be able to save your game on the free app to

    The level of idiocy on these reviews is amazing, people obviously don't understand what a demo is, I hope they aren't from my country. That said, this is a great app, it works fine and all the problems people are having are easily fixed in the settings, which makes me worry about the future of our human race.

    So I load up the emulator and try to go load a game but once I click on it, it says "Unfortunately DraStic has stopped" what bullcrap is this? Can someone please make an emulator that actually is decent? If you had the skills I don't think it would be hard. If this problem is fixed I'll rate 5 stars and give a better review.

  82. Evelyn Marquez-avatar

    The app is very easy to use, there is no need to browse through files to find a game. I just don't know how to save my progress in the game without it deleting from the emulator

    One game is all i needed, pokemon platinum, it runs great but it doesn't save normally, how am i suppose to continue after the league if it doesn't save normally? I've played the same game in computer emulators and works great, the problem is your emulator, not the file

  90. Owl-avatar



    It works. It finds the roms as for you, it does is not slow, it gives you a fast forward option, save options, flip screen and a remove on screen buttons option. The only thing i dont like is the 30 MINS TIME LIMIT. I pressume its because this is a free version. But if u restart the app the limit restarts as well.

  91. Rachel Singh-avatar

    I would give 5 if your demo didn't have a time limit. It works perfectly, but the other app costs too much. Living the broke life, kinda why I need an emulator.

    OK if your reading this and you have been searching every nds emulator you can find like me and see all of them being the same, slow, glitchy, lots of adds? Welp, your long journey is over, because I have found the perfect nds emulator, for me, at least, it.has.absolutely.zero.lag. and all of this app is original, none of it is stolen like the rest. Wow, nuff said. BUT, this is only a demo, the emulator is like 6 bucks, =^(

    You can play really smoothly , i never played something that fast and good graphic , but being a demo means that infact u cant save the game and u r timed for 30 mins so i would love , like , i would go out and scream for two entire hours :"YESSS" If u could update it and make possible to play for free , to save it and unlimited time.This app is truly something special , and from what i heard from some friends of mine who played the demo too and read some comments, EVERYONE will agree with me when i say that this app is amazing and if u could make the full version free it would be one of the best apps EVER. I hope u read this comment . THANKS!!!

    i really play games from this emulator for a year and a half still i cant stop this is the best ds emulator i ever had but one thing is missing pls make an a+b button some games requires a+b to jump but my fingers are small to press them still great keep up the good work buddies!!

    After simply booting up pokemon black and seeing no loss in framerate at all (NDS4ndroid lags really hard) I decided to buy the full version , after thirty seconds, not minutes , I was sold.

    I love this app. One problem: it'll play games DraStic can't (some), and some games DraStic are able to play but this can't. But everything else is fine though. Thanks, Exophase.

    This demo version is 30 mins but I eventually bought the full version because it works flawlessly. No performance and game saving issues that the free " NDS Boy " had. Worth buying the emulator from " DraStic ".

    Is there any way to control the size and/or alter the placement of the buttons like John's GBA and GBC emulators? Concerned that the full version dont have this and i dont wanna pay $6 for an emulator with uncustomizable control pads/buttons :(

  102. Asher Bauer-avatar

    Asher Bauer


    30 minutes isn't exactly very long I was hoping to test some other ROMS to make sure it wasn't too laggy, so I think it would be best to change it from 30 minutes to 30 years, so I can continue my path in becoming the best cheapskate there ever was, to save up is my real test, and to survive is my cause.

    I want to be able to rearrange the on-screen buttons but you don't seem to be able to. It would have to have the same level of customization as the My Boy! Game Boy Advance Emulator for me to consider paying money.

    Mat Cooper


    Beyond awesome. With the hi Res 3D settings switched on in the options and a little tweaking of the virtual controller layout, this is the absolute perfect DS emulator. Tested with Pokémon Black Version, works amazingly well. Has every option you could want for screens, controls, layouts, filtering, EVERYTHING. Went straight for paid option!

    If you can't afford this check out NDS Story it has fast forward as well, that's mainly what I was interested in, Drastic is very nice and has a good functional UI, But not a lot of people want to spend $6 on an app, If your looking for a cheap alternative check out nds story. But I would highly recommend Drastic to the ones who can offord it.

    I find playing games on this emulator that works pretty damn well compared to the other emulators out there. Sure 30 minutes may be small but more than enough to even play some of the games that my dsi couldn't. I'm going to get the full version of this emulator soon

    Played pokemon soul silver had great frame rate compared to the other two emulators I downloaded. The demo only lasts 30 minutes which gives tm you a taste of what to come if you buy the full version. All in all I will buy the full version so I can finish my game and start others.

    It's really funny reading the bad reviews saying they can't play saved files or when the game just shuts down. READ THE DESCRIPTION. It's a demo version, it's made to do that so you can try the app before buying it.
