Reviews From google play store

excellent! Many people are giving a low rating because they just do not understand how to use it! once you know what you are doing, you will find its an amazing app! The only app i know that has cheats for many systems of the past. A very well made and programmed piece of software. Kudos to the devs ,you have done an excellent job! please do not give a rating, unless you know what you are doing with retroarch. there are plenty of step by step demonstrations of how to use it on youtube.

Great app using shaders can turn everything into HD. It lags when using any PS1 core. Would love overlay controls for more consoles. Once you understand how to configure the app it is great. It took a while and several times until I got it down. I would've given this a five star rating but PS1 cores are buggy and need more button overlays for all consoles.

Yes it's complicated, it has a horrible menu interface and the touch controls aren't that great either. Nonetheless, this is a project of epic scope and when you grasp the basics you'll realise it is an immensely powerful frontend packed with features such as robust net-play, tons of shaders, savestates, fast-forwarding, core downloading/updating, rewinding, even achievements for some game systems. I am amazed and very thankful to the libretro team for this amazing piece of software, keep up the great work people! 😁

An amazing compilation of emulators and cheats. I love how I can use my bluetooth controller (An EVO VR one incase you are wondering) with it and it works great. I recommend this for anyone looking for an "All in one" emulator.. My only issue is, I have 1 "core" too many and cant figure out how to uninstall them.

THIS IS NOT A "PLUG AND PLAY" APP! BUT IT IS GREAT! RetroArch is a versatile and very well programmed emulator. It takes some time to set up and to learn to use it. There are many good guides for setup and use of this app.There ARE bugs/glitches! That is inevitable with a free, open source project like this! I've played maybe 30 different legacy console games on RetroArch mobile, about 85% of them work reliably. That's more than good enuf for me! Be patient!

All the normies should stop rating 1 star and bashing Retroarch because you dont know how to use an app! This is the single most wonderful piece of software my phone has ever been graced with, if you have any knowledge whatsoever on how computers work you will get this up and running in less than a minute! I am enjoying my childhood again playing banjo kazooie thanks to libretro😊😊

Very Good, need some little improvements. You can play any retro game , nes snes sega genesis etc, once you get the hang of it, you can configure controller button mapping per game, general config per core (per system), adding roms and editing existing playlist (roms lists) can be tricky.

I have to do some more testing but so far I really like it. It isn't easy to set up at first glance, but if you watch some YouTube videos or take your time with RetroArch then it will do wonders. So much noobs don't know how to use it and then leave a bad review.

this is a brilliant app... but there is one small issue. if i turn off the control overlay, then there is no way to exit the game, because the exit icon dissapears together with the controller overlays. the back button doesnt do anything either, so the only way to exit a game is to crash the app and restart

-kindle fire 7 7th gen- I havent found any problems with NES. I love turbo buttons on mGBA. N64 games run but barly and touchscreen analog sticks are horrable. Havent tried the others but I'm sure they work well and the controls are pretty good. (except for systems that use analog sticks which I suggest you get a bluetooth controller to use).

It's great for what it does. However I think it's rather too complicated to set up to your liking. It's got a ton of options but the menu is not user friendly in the slightest. The app does not like to play games once you hard reset the app without exiting the core emulator. And the UI is frankly ugly to look at, which again is hard enough to customize.

It is the best app ever as it has over 25 cores for playing retro games. So many people are saying it has a terrible UI. I Now, at first I accidentaly downloaded this app because I wondered what it was about. I thought myself how to do these things and was spectacular when I figured out the controls and stuff like that and if you dont like it, just download games like Happy Chick and Game Emulator. (Though Happy Chick wants to know you to send a message from your phone when you do 10 installs

PLEASE READ! Only reviewing due to the low score of 3.8! This app is amazing, used for years now, its open source, let's you play all your old favourites, and even gives you netplay too! What else do you need!? Yes its a little complex, because it is complex! Just read tutorials on the official website and all is answered there! Deserves a 4.5 minimum!

The UI is cluttered (try to find how to delete cores its location doesn't make sense). Some cores are far more glitchier and/or laggier than their standalone counterpart (PPSSPP is a great example of this along with some GBA or others on certain phones). And more often than not it's simply annoying to organize your games lists. For these reasons and all the others I can't give more than four stars. This application is still good, just needs a lot of polish.

It is abit frustrating when you start because the UI is not that great nor is it obvious. Once you get the hang of it though it allows for a lot of configuration. I got it because I wanted to try it for Genesis emulation before buying MD.Emu, and I do regret somewhat buying FPSE. I can play games I did not think I could on the Android platform. Once properly configured it plays everything your cpu and gpu are capable of playing.Auto config of gamepad works out of the box. Worth figuring out.

Best emulator out there! Only a very stupid person would have trouble setting this up; there were far more complicated emus years ago This app can emulate every system and more!!!! Come on!! Google how to use it if you're a tech simpleton

Great idea but ultimately not worth the hassle. Having all your games in one place is awesome, but many features are either buggy or missing due to limitations. You can't enable frameskipping which makes some games unplayable for me, which makes downloading separate emulators a better idea.

this is probably the greatest emulator ever. it has every system you can think of that actually matters, and even a few for running specific games such as DOOM and Quake. perhaps the only problem is that I remember it being a bit slow, but it is still worth... well, it's free! the amount of buttons on screen (due to the amount of systems it must account for) is both hilarious and annoying, too.

the app works, and i do like it. but i have some complaints about the dos portion of it. im trying to run a game called blood that released back in 97. the game runs very smoothly on this emulator. the only problem is that there isnt a gamepad similar to beloko game or open touch. i cant play the game without a keyboard and i dont have any money right now to buy one for my tablet.

AMAZING if you know what your doing. takes a little reading to figure out everything, but most of it is just common sense. I don't understand why everyone having a issue lol 😂
