  3. Zachary Botbol-avatar

    md emulator I think this is a great emulator!..BUT some things are...not bad just confusing. Please put up information on how to play SEGA CD games I think I know what to do but not to sure and let us delete save state's.

  4. Dale Shaw-avatar

    md.emu 1.5.37 apk Brilliant app. Worth every penny. Was able to play the beloved Snatcher from start to finish with no issues. Make sure you have the bios files installed before complaining that the app doesn't work.

    md.emu free apk THIS IS THE BEST EMULATOR I EVER USED THANK YOU YOUR WORK IS MUCH APPRECIATE BY ME Also I Downloaded A Sega Cd Bios And I Got Sonic Megamix To Load But When I Started The Game It Would Not Load Past That Point. Other Than That THIS IS A GREAT EMULATOR KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

  6. Wizurd P-avatar

    md.emu free download Great app. I bought this to play Xeno Crisis a great new game created for the MegaDrive by Bitmap bureau. I now have many more classic MegaDrive games. Using Bluetooth controllers one cheapo and one 8bitdo no issues at all.

    md.emu paid apk Playing is perfect! CRT and other overlays and are very nice extras. Please add feature that minimize input latency. Thanks

  8. J Milow-avatar

    md.emu free Wanted to okay my favorite games but there are times the game will freeze because there is not option to turn perfect sync off.

  9. BigLyle-avatar

    md.emu 32x All my Roms runs too fast. Sega CD aswell. I do not understand what's happening. Fast forward off.

  10. Tristian Miles-avatar

    Needs x32 support but otherwise it's an awesome app keep that in mind for the next update

    Does this emulator play Sega SG-1000 ROMs? I tried one but it did not work, but it seem it should...

  14. SeoDragon117-avatar

    It runs smoothly enough, but for some reason every time I boot it up, it seems to have either forgotten, or cross-wired the button layouts I had set up. This has happened across multiple devices (GPD XD+, Chromebook, Xperia mobile). I can't comment on whether this happens for touch screen controls, as I've never used them. This happens across all emulators that seem to have this same infastructure and UI; not just limited to MD.

  15. Bobby Kraemer-avatar

    Great Port, but I would love the option to play multi-player through wifi on an update, because I can tell my friends and family to get it to play with me, and that would mean more money in your pocket. I think a few other paid emulators might have that option.

  16. Billy-avatar

    FINALLY!! A MegaDrive emulator that lest me run all my roms in full screen on my TV with a Bluetooth controller. I tried a few others before I found this and they were either full of adds or terrible or both. One would not even let me use full screen mode. This one is PERFECT for my needs. It easily gets 5 stars and well worth buying.

  17. JOSEPH ORTIZ-avatar

    The Longest I've played this but the sound is it still too low.. but the gameplay I gave it to Stars. They've updated this a few days ago and you would have thought he would have adjusted the sound to where it's as loud as all the other emulators. It's the lowest emulator. Unless you have this attached to a speaker you can't even really hear it on a phone. I open another emulator and you can actually hear the game loud on other emulators.

  18. Chojins TX-avatar

    Hello Mr. Broglia , i love your emulator apps and i bought almost all of them ... besides that i am big into scene demos and i recently found a demo from the group TITAN called "OVERDRIVE 2" for the SEGA MEGADRIVE / GENESIS - the ROM is available on " pouet dot net " - but its not working with md.emu - the ROM spills out a error message that it needs SSF2 BaNK SWITCHING and the only emulator that does that is blast.em on PC - maybe you can update your emulator so the ROM could work - you should definitely take a look at this awesome DEMO - OVERDRIVE 1 runs to 98% on your md.emu which is totally awesome.... THANK YOU

  19. Rob Rumbelow-avatar

    Another great emulator. After looking for a SNES one, I wanted a Mega Drive one. Seemed a no brainer to try one created by the same person who made the great SNES one. Not disappointed, looks and works just like the SNES one. Brilliant. 👍 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  20. Swiftly Tony-avatar

    This app is great, functional and versatile. However, would it be possible to add 8:7 aspect ratio in the video option? Either way I appreciate the time you took to make this app(s) and to continue improving as always.

  21. Andrew Scotti-avatar

    App runs great and fairly easy to use with genesis and has good controller support however i can not get the cd working. Tried multiple diffrent bios and roms with no luck. Also a visual library would be a nice addition, maybe something along the lines of epsxe or mupen.

  22. Akira Takahashi-avatar

    Akira Takahashi


    Such a great emulator! It would be better if 32X emulation was also possible akin to kega fusion.

  23. Eric Cook-avatar

    Good emulator for playing Sega gamesthere is a free version of this as well but this one is a little bit better if you can afford it I would definitely say by this one over the free one

  24. Polybius081-avatar

    Awesome Sega emulator for SMS/MD/SCD. Works perfectly with an 8bitdo M30 wireless control pad. Would be great if Game Gear and 32X compatibility could be added via a secondary emulator core.

  25. Gareth Pike-avatar

    Finally found an Emulator that doesn't bombard me with ads! Works a treat. Just save a few Roms on your phone and away to go! Love it!

  26. Max VA-avatar

    Really nice Sega emulator. Top notch. Even Sega CD works fine.

  27. Jonathan Macdonald-avatar

    Great emulator, but could use tactile feedback on button presses.

  28. PewJihDun-avatar

    On Dune CD every time i talk to someone it crashes the emulator! any idea? tried different bios

  29. Quin Goyer-avatar

    Functional But Frustrating I downloaded this to play Sonic 3 Complete, and it stutters horribly on my device.

  30. Jamie Thompson-avatar

    Amazing just wish it supported all sega

    georgiaridgerunner 79


    I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever so rated 5 stars

  32. James T-avatar

    I love this app! As far as sega emulators go for android this is the best. I've been using emulators for over 15 years and this is one of the most reliable and updated I've seen. It's only missing one thing... 32X support! Please add this! Then 32-bit cartridge and graphically enhanced CD games could be played!!!

  33. Josh Schneider-avatar

    Great app. Any chance of adding Chrome cast support?

  34. Knuckles Daily & Knuckles-avatar

    Knuckles Daily & Knuckles


    it crashes more often than I would like. more often than NES.EMU anyway. I only really have one complaint. PLEASE ADD WIDGETS. I know it seems like a dumb request. And the ability to shortcut games is already built in. But I like to dress up my apps sometimes. and these Custom Icon apps do not recognize the built in app shortcuts. They do however recognize them on the MyBoy. The MyBoy has widget support. That's all. Otherwise it's amazing. Try making a custom icon for one game to see what I mean.

  35. Robert Stevenson-avatar

    Robert Stevenson


    Excellent, with lots of great added features. It's great that you can exit a game and it automatically saves the game state, meaning when you run game again it picks up where you left off. very authentic emulator, I know this because I owned a megadrive. I hope Robert, the developer, continues to write more emulators for android. I certainly would buy them.

  36. Carlos Tobias-avatar

    SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB E Ver. 8.5 I like this Emulator a lot, primarily because it has the ability to play some games vertically from the GENESIS or the MEGA DRIVE Counsels. Unlike the other AndroGens APP that used to be on Google Play Store. It did not have the ability to play any game vertically, which I think some games were ment to be played vertically. With that said, the only thing stopping me from giving this app 5 STARS is because of the fact that for some reason there is a little latency factor, when I push any button or move my joystick on my Bluetooth controller there is a little delay in its execution. That is the only thing that the APP of AndroGens got right, right off the bat. And I also have that app. I only got this app because I thought that it was that good if not better, I was wrong. With that said, can you PLEASE give this app an update and fix this problem for all of users. THANK YOU

  37. Stanford Hawk-avatar

    So far it's worked. Now I know why I played PC games with the 3d card. Graphics were terrible back then compared to PC games. I loaded up Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II. I completed two season's back then. Now I know why I preferred NASCAR racing on PC at that time. I also loaded Desert Strike, and it pales in comparison to Apache on PC.

  38. SwagGamer 9750-avatar

    This emulator is probaly the best so far, worth my money. Games run smooth, no ads, cheat code functionality... Everythind I need. Robert Broglia, if your reading this, I want to congratulate you for making this successful emulator. You deserve the cash I gave you for this emulator.

  39. Jonathan Loh-avatar

    Great SMS/Genesis/Sega CD emulator. Works with every game I have tried. Great features and very good customization. Interface can be hard to navigate but not a big issue. The lack of 32x (and CD 32x) support is the biggest gripe.

  40. A Google user-avatar

    The performance of this app on the Nvidia Shield is fantastic. The only thing which let's it down is the UX and UI of the app. Support for a library function with game cover art would be the icing on the cake for this emulator.

  41. Jose Flores-avatar

    I've used mobile emulators since 2010 and this is by far one of the best. No crashes, smooth gameplay, everything is just like the original! 5/5 Stars! All the low reviews are idiots that don't know how to use an Emulator.

  42. A Google user-avatar

    It is a great emulator with no issues although I thought this emulator could play 32X games as well but it doesnt have the 32X bios option like the sega cd option nor can it play any of my 32X roms. I may be confusing this with another emulator though..

  43. Joe Vloggz-avatar

    This app is fantastic!! And works so good on my Sony Xperia 1! Just connect a PS4 controller and you are good to go! Even plays all the games in 21:9 (the screen ratio) of the xperia 1. Totally worth hsbing on your phone to play all your favourite childhood games.

  44. Preston Thomas-avatar

    The best Sega console emulator on Android. It does a host of systems and they work as they should. The menu system is easy to follow plus you can use a real controller.

  45. Jrd Krstn-avatar

    Every Broglia emulator is top notch. I love the interface, and it's easy to browse with a controller. Worth the money.

  46. Ted Hadler-avatar

    Brilliant emulator, runs games perfectly. would love even more it if it had a quick save/load buttons and maybe different keyboard design options.

  47. Dethicus Blaq-avatar

    Works great. Love using a controller. Plays all the old school games really well. No ads and other BS.

  48. marc leech-avatar

    I was wary paying for an emulator without fully knowing ifit would be any better than the free ones, after reading the reviews i took the risk and i am so happy i did it is fantastic

  49. Cole Ockenden-avatar

    Sega cd doesnt work, tried different bios file and everything really disapointed after seeing good reviews, not worth it to be honest its just a expensive genesis emulator. It played phantasy star 4 fine but for 4.99 not worth it to me. Please fix this to make it legit and work

  50. Mark Lester Uy-avatar

    Please add option to open a game saved in external storage. Currently, I have to move the game to internal storage in order for the emulator to see it.

  51. Abraham Littlehales-avatar

    Make sure you have a good specs phone and a good specs Android box like i have ,i recommended a Nexus 6p, mobile phone 📱 and a X92 Android box ,the fastest on the market.if you going to be stingy and by cheap items ,you will get cheap quality lol.

  52. Joseph Drew-avatar

    Everything was good, save state was awesome, but crash in short random time on oppo f9. I will give you 5 star if you fix this.

  57. Adam Gibson-avatar

    PLEASE ADD PERFECT SYNC SO I CAN FINISH SHINING FORCE CD. Most other emulators have it by now, if I'd known this one was so far behind i would've kept my money.

    Works well. Would appreciate Super 32x support and a more interesting and user friendly menu, otherwise perfect.

    Excellent for sega genesis master system and turbo graphix 16. I am having a difficult time finding an adaptable bios for the sega cd part.

  60. Peter R-avatar

    Not a lot of dedicated MegaDrive/Genesis emulators on the playstore. This one seems the best. Worth the buy.
