Reviews From google play store

This emulator works better than some PC emulators I have, but saves can be a bit wonky, I recommend making backups just incase.

Solid emulator

Good, but... Where's the online mode? You promised like years ago. That's the only thing that have been missing.

If you lock your screen to set down your phone momentarily your progress will be wiped.

Much improved over the years

Paid for this app in 2014 and have had it removed from my Google account???? With no refund, wtaf guys. How else would I be able to review your paid app..??? And app developers wonder why people just download APK+OBB data without supporting you.

Pretty sick

Works pretty well. One bug. When you open the app and select your ROM it automatically goes to your savestate. The load/save menu doesn't work on mine sometimes so I have to reset the ROM every time and use the actual saved game

Thanks so much by far the best ds emulator on Android. (yes I tried them all)

I like it

I love it even I tried All the D's emulator on here this is the best one you can find in app store I say get it it's cheap it has great Grafics smooth game but but guys tip before you start a game even if u started a new file don't over do the cheats it dose effect the game sometimes freezes so carful how many you use if it says select only one then do it don't select 2 or more k but love it guys keep it up 🤗

Does this run 3DS games , too?

Awsome memories

There's a bit of a learning curve, but the app functions very well. There's also an online forum, which is how I learned to change the layout. FYI - there's no user tutorial, hence the learning curve, it doesn't support 3DS games, but it's great for the rest.

Omg i love this app, its reliable, fun, easy to use, and a good way to spend your time.


basically better than all the other "bootleg" emulators/viruses. Worth the money.

Every game crashes after the first trainer no matter how many cheats u have enabled or not or sound or anything.

Very good emulator. Love it


The only DS emulator on Android that works.

It's that good chiefs

Some of my games are a bit glitchy. Playing Sims Urbz in the City and when I get into the higher levels of a minigame job it doesn't save that I reached it after I finish and would constantly keep me at my previous level. Otherwise everything works well.

Honestly a great DS Emulator. 9/11 would rate again

Runs very smooth!

By far the best emulator. Never had any problems with it. Been using it for 4 years now. Love it

Well worth the $5. I tried out a free DS emulator, and right off the bat I experienced a huge lag. However, I have experienced zero issues with DraStic! Runs smoothly, very easy controls ans customization.

When I first opened it, I went into "Load New Game" Option, then I downloaded a game. The game does not show, what shoes is 3 folder files. 1.Emulated (which is holds alot of other files, most of which is empty) 2. My Files (Which is empty). 3. Self (which is empty). I am using a Anriod 6 and a chromebook. Niether is working.

I like how you can get all the different types of games on it

Is guud


Great emulator

You should allow for mapping buttons to the volume up/down buttons, and allow volume in the menu

Love it ♥️ Worth the money. 👌

I have a problem with the games shin megami tensei devil survivor and yugioh over the nexus because there is no cartridge inserted for the games but other than that it a great emulator

Keine bugs. Kein hate

Can you fix the multuplayer/wifi? Thanks!!!

Best DS emulator I have found. Exceptional yet simple UI, and no hiccups on its end when in game. Glad I bought it, got me through a lot of offline time.

But some roms, like Dora the Explorer, that needs a styler to play, it does not work well. But it works great on Super Mario, Mario Kart. I just can't figure it out how to get the cheats to work. Thanks.

Excellant so far! Literally the ONLY crtisicm I have is that I wish it was a little easier to find the setting to rearrange the virtual gamepad layout. It was a little too low on the screen for my taste is portrait mode. Otherwise it's been very professional and easy to use. Simply had to find a proper rom website. Props to them for not endorsing any websites. That's a good way to get in trouble.

Great app and stuff

Been playing a game for hours, saving periodically. Go to play today and no saves on any games recorded..

A nice and fast DS emulator that is worth your money

Freezing wont load rom

THE DS emulator on Android.

The best DS emulator I hace used on a mobile device. However I can find a way to volume up /down buttons as LT and RT? Is that possible? Many thanks

well worth the money!! plenty of built-in cheats and fully customizable button and screen placement. runs smoothly.

It's great, though one thing they can add is multi player

Deletes saves many times! Very frustrating that for no obvious reason to me, once app is closed will sometimes reset to a much earlier save losing hours of work. Not using cheats of any kind, saving both in game and by emulator state. Very unhappy with losing progress multiple times.

Works perfect

Awesome emulator

hey do you think i can become a beta tester? its like,,,, not working v well for me

Okay look its worth the money and it is the best running emulator Ive ever used honestly......that said I hate you plenty Exo for forcing me to pay for it.....litterally everything else out there is garbage and you've done a fine job of keeping it that way.......dick.....

Pretty good but please add multiplayer

Love it just like a real Nintendo ds

Just wow. I can't believe how good this emulator runs on my cheap budget phone. I can even use high resolution 3d with fantastic framerate. If you have any interest in playing a DS game on your phone, just buy it. I'm sure it'll work great for you.

I love this app. 😍 it's like I can bring my old nintendo Dsi with me everywhere. 😍

Totally worth it

Mediocre, the developers need to work on a lot of things. This app has been the same since it's original release and it's very poorly designed for people who have no idea what they're doing.

Good emulator

A beautiful thing.

When i try playing game on it...goes back to main screen Terrible Want refund

It's a good NDS emulator.

The most stable DS emulator on the play store, as well as packs the most features. Wish it had multiplayer support but otherwise a great DS emulator.

Great Great

Says not licensed "wrong date and time". Followed help procedures. Still not working.

Best of the best as far as nds emulators go

The only weak point of this emulator is that it costs 5 dollars. However, it is well worth its price tag and is undoubtedly the fastest DS emulator on Google Play. It also has built-in cheat codes, while others force you to put them in manually.

nice apps

Works perfectly and runs smoothly with all the games that i tried

No offline play

Best emulator


Google Drive integration plis..

Cannot play on blackberry keyone cause the "ghost" key pressed. Cannot control the game.

Please make this ds works for trading with another ds emulator. like pokemon black 2. cause some pokemon can only be obtain via trade.

Love it

It's good.... but I need in app trading like myboy app...

Don't take the positive reviews or redirects from reviews of competitor emulators with a pinch of salt. This is by far the best DS emulator for at least the Android platform. It performs smoothly and is more than worth the cost. || What I would like to see added is the capability of playing GameBoy Advance games, just as a normal DS console would be able. I see there is a setting for mounting a second cartridge type, but I gather that's for games that alllow dual mounting.

I don't know how to setting the right display to play Love Plus correctly.

Had it for a while now few years or so and never had a issue. Bought verzion

Best ds emulator on playstore

Remove the online to open and I will make it 5 stones

By far the only emulator on phone capable of running Golden Sun. Truly amazing app great work.

Probably the best emulator out there on mobile phones. Main reason why I switched back to android.

Very love it

Flaeless operation, absolutely recommend.

Best DS emulator. No lag, even on my Mi A2 Lite. Good job guys!

Great Emulator, but like all great emu's, it needs to be open source, not only so others can contribute and make it perfect, but so that it will stand against time itself, existing in everyones lives and hard drives. Adding your own wifi only license means you intend only to make a dime.. and in return, we are left with no assurance this app will be around after a while. We see the same problem with damonps2, epsxe is simply a donation, license free. Thats how its done.


Absolutely epic also has pre installed cheats yaaa who cares if u have to pay for this just nick ur moms credit card hehehehe also will there be a 3ds emulator



Whoops haven't updated in forever. Still the best DS emulator on the planet. Thanks as always. my 5 dollars had given me countless hours of fun.

Best emulator for ds

I was a bit skeptical purchasing an emulator, but this thing was all sorts of worth it! The controls and screens are super customizable, the touch controls are responsive, and the ability to upgrade the 3D graphics makes playing classic DS games on here more pleasant than trying to play them on my 3DS!


Great app


It's just a great app and does what its supposed to do
