    RetroArch is a must have app for anyone that own's an android device and is a fan of classic games like sonic, alex the kid and many more retro titles. The only issue i have had is some games don't want to save, i am unsure if this is a fault of the application or the game files.

    The fact that I can play almost all my old retro games under one app is amazing. I grew up in the Genesis SNES era and now I can play those games when I choose too. The save state system is great as well. The extra question at the bottom "is it action adventure?" Well if you play one of those game then yes it is. Support the devs if ya can cause I love this app.

    I'm mainly giving 5 stars because there are so many systems playable and for free this emulator runs smoothly on my Note 9 and my iPhone 5 there are no good ds emulators on the playstore and drastic which I paid for does nothing but crash and have problems thanks to the developers for this app and the ds system I can't find one anywhere

    It works great. Just download and load up a core for whatever system you want. Then load up the ROM file and you're good to go. Great an account over at RetroAchievements and you can link your account on this app and earn achievements like on Xbox and PlayStation.

    Everything works so far, no real compatibility issues encountered. UI could be revamped but everything is there. Cheats for random, fun replayability is not user friendly(may be my inexperience).

    Heard about this after trying to find a decent GBA emulator for my phone. Having only tried the GBA core and a handful of games to test it out, I can say I'm very pleased with the results. Will definitely try other cores and see how that goes. Takes a little but of know how to get it up and running, but otherwise is fantastic.

    It is a little hard to set up but when you do it has most of not all the game systems I want to play all in one place but u have to have a pretty OK spec device to run most of the systems.The only problem I have is on the ds it lags on cut seens but Pokémon ruby runs perfect on GBA

    The reason I gave it a 3 star is because of the n64 core and roms making my app close. everything else works perfectly fine and i would recomend this app

    Great app. In dire need of virtual button editing option ; both d'pad and analogue ( left ) to appear on the same screen , rather than toggling between them ; a simplified UI. I plead.

    The reason why i gave this a a 1 star is because every time i load the game i wanna play and the core i need for it it just stops i tried resetting my device over and over because i thought that it was my device but it still kept doing it so please fix it and i will give it a 5 stars
