Multiness is a NES/Famicom emulator that lets you play classic games on your Android mobile devices. Besides offline mode, you can also play with your friends via LAN network or Online (requires logging in using Facebook or Google account, no third-party apps needed). Note that unlike other emulators, this app truly supports online multiplayer without any manual setup or opening network ports.

- Offline Single-player mode.
- LAN & Wifi Direct & Online Multiplayer mode. It is consistent, has no de-syncing problems like other emulators that use scheduled syncing Network play method. However, the gameplay quality will depend on your network connection's speed.
- Invite others to play Online using Google or Facebook account.
- Text & Voice chat when playing Multiplayer. 
- Supports saving & loading game' states, even when playing multiplayer (on host side only).
- Supports cheats, even in multiplayer mode.
- Supports both hardware controllers and virtual/on-screen/touch based controller.
- Editable virtual buttons' layout.
- Turbo buttons option.
- Full screen display mode.
- This emulator is powered by Nestopia core, the most accurate NES emulator core ever exists.


- Location permission is required for Wifi Direct multiplayer mode. Without it, 2nd player cannot find the 1st player who created the network game session.
- Voice Record permission is required for voice chat during multiplayer. You can disable voice chat in game if you don't want it.
- The app doesn't come with any games. You have to copy or download NES roms to your device's sdcard. Their locations will be detected automatically by the app itself. Both .zip and .nes files are accepted.
- When playing multiplayer, second player is not required to have the game roms in his/her devices, it is only required for the first player (i.e. the host).
- To reduce lag during multiplayer, place your devices as close as possible to each other and to the Router/Access Point.
- Alternatively, using Wifi Direct option if your device supports it.
- Playing over Internet consumes quite a lot of bandwidth which is roughly 60-100 KB per second.
- Google logged in users will only able to play online with other Google users, and similarly, FB users can only play with FB users.
- Google players can join a random open game. As long as the first player (host) chooses to auto pick a 2nd player during inviting process.
- The one hosting the game through Internet is required to have the minimum upload speed around 60 KB/s (512 Kbps).
- If you encounter severe lags, sometimes a simple router or both players' device's wifi restart might help.
- There are some routers that don't support direct Internet multiplayer hosting due to their Firewall settings. If it is the case, the app will attempt to use relay server to relay data between 2 players, though the bandwidth will be limited if relay server is used by too many people. If relay server still fails, you will probably see "Remote connection timeout or disconnected" message popped up on guest player side. You can try to switch roles, i.e. guest becomes host and vice versa. If we are lucky, the new host's router will allow the connection between two players. 
- This application is in no way endorsed by or affiliated with the Nintendo Corporation.

    I love multiness. This game reminds me of the old golden days when we used to play retro games and not some brain damaging. The controls are perfect. The quick save option is even better, which makes it perfect with quick load. Iv completed contra, super mario bros on this already!

    The felling of 19th's is best but i give 3 starts because in muiltplayer player 2 is a bit slow on movement.

    Please add separate turbo button for A&B then I can even buy it. Its much needed then it will be best nes emulator ever. If you see some games require turbo buttons even newer original gamepad has 4 buttons. Some games are Contra which requires continue shooting while mario require turbo button at some places so by changing it again n again through settings is inconvenient.

    I found this on a Reddit thread and honestly it's the best of its kind. Plus, the idea of internet multiplayer for NES is brilliant, great for when my girl is out at university and we want to play together. Absolutely love it and can't wait to see how it improves as time goes on 🔥



    This is the best emulator ever, because in many emulator there is no option to change control in landscape mode but I wanna thank this devs for concentrating on that thank you devs.... Only one thing please add search bar so that we can find games without scrolling for games once again thanks :) please the control sucks please fix it

    Such a great game with user friendly interface! Lot's of bonding time with my sister with 2 player coop games! I would like to donate somehow if this continues to be this good! Superb + Excellent = 5 stars!

    sorry for the 1 star but there's no option to change resolution!! other emulators have it, but this emulator was the best one ever made, too bad it doesn't provide us woth a resolution option, hope there will be one in the future so we can change it to 4:3 or even full screen according to our leisure instead of playing on the default 1:1 even in landscape mode :( plz implement that option

    Very good app... Can play nes multiplayer with my friends easy..... Can you make a multiplayer Sega genesis?

    Truly a revolutionary idea, just needs a lil bit more improvement on the streaming quality because sometimes it's barely playable as P2, but other than that, you can play with your family locally which works amazingly well
