  1. Mr. Fox-avatar

    Runs great! I have had no issue running roms. I want to find a nice controller to pair with my device. I don't like using a touch screen, I like buttons, my device will not allow me to push a and b on the screen simultaneously, but that may be a touch screen issue, not the app.

  2. Skadoosher 77-avatar

    apk The only passable free nes emulator. And I mean passable. The buttons are finicky and the options less fleshed out than any respectable emulator for a gba or sm64but for some reason the nes has been desecrated in its emu representation. I long for the day a good nes emulator comes out on the app store.

  3. ƈʊʀʟʏ ʄʀօʍ ȶɦɛ ֆաɨʀʟʏ-avatar

    ƈʊʀʟʏ ʄʀօʍ ȶɦɛ ֆաɨʀʟʏ


    pc I like this. I get to play old games I loved or never even played. The controller doesn't have a lot of options. And I wish I knew how to delete roms.

  4. Steve Rando-avatar

    pro apk Works flawlessly. No lag or stutter. Easy to navigate UI.

  5. Szabo Jozsef-avatar

    download Turbo buttons sometimes stops working in Contra force nes game. Jumping button also stops working sometimes. The move buttons has no possibility to up+right up+left etc. Huge missing.

  6. Sonic Bro 47X-avatar

    apkpure Is nice, better than saving several hundreds of dollars for a real console with actual cartridges and cables to connect to my TV.

  7. Cody Burgess-avatar

    nostalgia.nes pro (nes emulator) All games load quickly and play seamlessly with wireless blue tooth controler! Highly recommend this app!

  8. Christina Botsford-avatar

    Christina Botsford


    download nostalgia.nes pro (nes emulator) Great emulator; very crisp clear display.

  9. Mike Williams-avatar

    No issues so far. Does it have the ability to use external controller?

  10. William M.-avatar

    I used to have a Nexus 6, and it ran with no problems. But then I switched to a Xiaomi Mi 9T and for some reason it freezes for a few seconds and does some sudden fast forwards. It's annoying.

  11. Adam Bachor-avatar

    This is a great emulator for android. No ads, there are some premium features but nothing annoying. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for some retro fun on mobile.

  12. Jack Brady-avatar

    Controls really need work especially the crosspad it's unforgiving. Needs overlap on the controls and rather than trying to press two buttons at the same time why not touch the space inbetween to do so.

  13. Zombafire 5000-avatar

    I love this emulator, I mainly use it to play Mike Tysons Punchout, but there is only one thing I found out, you can't delete games off of it once they are installed. Maybe it's just me but if you know how to please let me know!!! My YouTube is Zombafire 5000 And my twitch is zombafire

  14. Bold One-avatar

    Old PSP NES and SNES emulators allow the user be able to press left and right or press L and R to scroll faster through games. This feature should be a given in all emulators however I see it all too often. Not being able to customize the blue menus feels is nagware to purchase the full version. Everything I have played worked perfectly and seemless. No screen tearing or off color. Recommended overall but $5 is too much. $2 would probably get more people to purchase. STILL GRATEFUL THANKS

  15. joey bananas-avatar

    Exactly like the NES. I was able to beat games with the rewind option and 8 saves per game. In Astyanax, I saved each boss fight so I can go back anytime I want and just have boss fights. Great job guys.

  16. THUNDERBIRD!!-avatar

    I'm 8yrs old again! The nostalgia factor is through the roof! These games I grew up with certainly did not hold your hand like these new games.Super Mario 2 coins gives you a way to breeze through a level after so many attempts, the gold/yellow leaf makes you invincible!Back in the day that's called cheating,lol.Great app guys!!!

  17. RetroFlux-avatar

    This emulator is just FANTASTIC! There is nothing to complain about unless your a whiny person to begin with haha. Don't blame the dev if it doesn't work with your hardware as these things take time to fix and implement! All I see is dedication and an eye for quality. I am sooooo buying the pro version soon! Great job!

  18. ThisThingEaten-avatar

    Touchscreen controls don't allow you to press the B button and the A button at the same time, which is required for many NES games, including Mega Man.

  19. Cell Plays49-avatar

    If you are a great I've recommended but I have one problem when I connect my Xbox controller what's that being a butt in an awkward position and I can't seem to change the layout can you please fix this

  20. Purple Flix-avatar

    Quite decent. It just annoys me by the fact that when I'm playing Tetris, I often press two buttons on the d pad , causing the pieces to not move at all. But overall, it's a nice emulator

  21. Alex Blackburn-avatar

    I'm telling you, this is the BEST nes emulator for Android right now. You can remap the touch controls to wherever you want, it runs in HD and with no stutter. The controls are very responsive, unlike what some people might say in the reviews.

  22. Zachary Hargrave-avatar

    Zachary Hargrave


    It's one of the only emulators that work with controllers connected to a computer. But the sound, its really bad, the game play can be a bit laggy sometimes, but for an emulator I think that its ok.

  23. MK Wilson-avatar

    Downloaded to see if any emulators have solved the problem of terrible controls. This one has not.

  24. Donuts 760-avatar

    The BEST best emulator of ALL time game run and look amazing only complain is that I wish I could hide the buttons but that's about it. Having a lot of fun playing Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon and the blade of light.

  25. Lenny Camacho-avatar

    This app is actually amazing. Simpler UI than others of similar characteristics that makes the experience super enyojable.

  26. Godchi1d Von Steuben-avatar

    BEST NES Emulator available in the playstore. Comes with a library of the best, rarest, and best rare games for the system. Easily compatible with gamepad controllers. 5 star user experience. HIGHLY recommended!

  70. Dark Sonic The Hedgehog-avatar

    Dark Sonic The Hedgehog


    I think I could play Super Mario Bros. on this and disable the barrier that would prevent Mario and/or Luigi from going back and maybe add the Lanky Mushroom into the game, the Super Mushroom and the Fire Flower is nice but sometimes I wish more power-ups were added to the game

  71. The Casual Watcher-avatar

    The Casual Watcher


    Bullcrap.. I'm trying to edit the controller layout(because I'm playing megaman games) and it doesn't even work... Controls are very hard to use and editing it is just abysmal. Wouldn't recommend if you're playing games that require skill.

  72. Terapong Vitinantakit-avatar

    Terapong Vitinantakit


    So good,It's OK for Super Mario 3.🙂🙂

  73. Praveen kumar-avatar

    Amazing. excellent work done by the people behind this app

  75. Ronielle Jay L. Wong-avatar

    Ronielle Jay L. Wong


    So i paid pro version and i cant review it, This emulator is awesome. some features with zapper, all codes and rewind. but only problem have a difficult control like a+b button when i play megaman 6. please i want a+b split button but not a one button for new update. just like nes.emu and john ness have a+b space button. and the gameplay (such as Kirby Adventure) have a lag issue. but its ok. i hope can update this gameplay issue and controls also. i give 5 stars and keep it up for good work 😊

  76. gameon332-avatar

    This is the best game Ever the controls are perfect i dont think that people should rate this 1 i rate this 10000000009000000000000

  77. Edward Ryan-avatar

    Pure garbage. Unable to play anything.

  78. Luis Antonio Almodovar Ruvalcaba-avatar

    Luis Antonio Almodovar Ruvalcaba


    Its not great nor is it good, it's meh. To explain that I guess it's the quality it has each game you play is fine but I have more negatives than positives, see the common problem is the iresponsive controls, the games it has aren't really the best option, being that they're cheap and unplayable by being RPG japanese games unless you know the language, or either they crash just when you select it. Most library of the games aren't really good.

  79. Diego Ortega-avatar

    The design of the buttons are so useless, those diagonal borders on the a and b makes it almos impossible to play as you will definitely miss the hit area... Is so annoying.

  80. Hector Rivera-avatar

    It froze from time to time pliz fix

  81. Navin Kumar-avatar

    One of the best emulator ...but one thing it should come with multiplayer connection features..but for solo player this emulator is best

  82. Brandon Taylor-avatar

    I love this app!!! Bro..... We ever thought that one day you could be playing Mike Tyson's Punch-out on your cell phone!!!!!

  83. Ivan Studios-avatar

    Great for playing games on the go! And even better if you have a wireless controller to play with!

  84. María I. Sepúlveda-avatar

    María I. Sepúlveda


    Was great before this happened. I was playing mario, and every time I hit a ? Box the audio goes low. This is unfortunate because I really like nostalgia emulators. Oh well, to the next one we go!

  85. Rene Legaspi-avatar

    Good emulator. Runs all my roms. I don't get bothered by ads. Control is good but not perfect. Probably because I'm using on my phone instead of a tablet

  86. Afan Vlogs-avatar

    Simply 5 Stars. But why can't I play in landscape mode? It doesn't matter if it's in 4:3.

  87. Karheng Toh-avatar

    Very good app to play classic Nintendo games

  88. Travelers Paradise-avatar

    Travelers Paradise


    Will buy only if you guys add automatic download cheats .otherwise no .but m having fun using free one

  89. Brand Stoker-avatar

    Everything is pretty great, honestly. My only real gripe is how when trying to link a controller. Otherwise, great stuff.

  90. Cliff Lyles-avatar

    Really good, but kinda frustrating. The interface and functionality are almost flawless, but the control pad is incredibly annoying with a massive dead spot in the center. It can kinda be alleviated by making the pad smaller, but I still can't get it where it needs to be. Diagonals are nearly impossible. I think an octagon hit box would help tremendously. Also, the gun feature is useless. The mapping is off or something, it's virtually impossible to land a hit. Kudos for the rest though!

  91. mzeo adamia-avatar

    it is working perfectly on my xiaomi phone

  92. the official channel of officialness-avatar

    the official channel of officialness


    I use this emulator all the time. to anyone who needs a tutorial on roms: a rom is basically just the game, but in a file(basically what the cartridge is reading off of) so, you go on Google and look up something like "final fantasy 1 rom download" and you will be given a bunch of sites. HOWEVER, this does not come without flaw, some sites will download a file with a .exe extension. these are to be deleted asap if you are on PC. you know you have it when the file is zipped. scan your downloads.

  93. Derek Louden-avatar

    Very good, except that I am unable to emulate the Famicom Disc System, despite downloading the bios. At first the game works properly, but then whenever i try to play it it says "Failed to load game". Now all of my FDS games display this message, including the ones I haven't actually played yet. Please fix this and I will rate 5 stars. Thanks.

  94. G Williams-avatar

    Very good emulator, smoothly runs every ROM that it recognises including hacks. Can use Game Genie codes. Ads are minimal and don't interfere with gameplay. You can adjust button size and place. D-pad shape needs work (it just needs to be closer to NES). Some ROMs aren't recognised because the file type isn't .ROM or .NES. You can add games by downloading ROMs. Nostalgia Emulators, please add in-app IPS patcher for hacks and external controller support. Also please make SNES emulator.

  95. Joshua Kempe-avatar

    the app runs nes roms almost flawlessly but i cant for the life of me use the touch .screen controls and i doubt many others can too. i tried to change the layout and still didnt have much luck. basically the catch is - i think you'll have little luck controlling the game because you generally need to press multiple buttons at once and it's nearly impossible to do that on a completerly flar surface in such precise spots. you will need a LOT of practice.

  96. Justin Miale-avatar

    Absolutely LOVE this app!! So far it's been compatible with every ROM I've loaded into it. If you're an old school gamer or just want to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane, this is the app for you. From SuperMarioBros to The Legend of Zelda and everything in between, you've literally got your NES in the palm of your hand and there's never any need to blow in a cartridge or smack that sweet spot on the right hand side of the console. Every ROM works every time!!

  97. Tony Taylor-avatar

    It's great for those who like nintendo and want to play games on a mobile device. eventhough i have to go somewhere else for the roms Im giving it 5 stars because its great especially for playing super mario bros or the legend of Zelda and its nice to get the games separate because i can delete what i don't want without fully deleting the app and i can add more games whenever.

  98. Nolan Bautista-avatar

    this app is doesnt force you to buy the pro version, and it runs almost any nes game only complaint is that there are times when you are holding a or b with a direction on the dpad, and the action doesnt register. i see this most commonly in classic mario games,where i dont jump as high, as if i didnt hold the button, or i just stop moving completely.this is very frustrating to me, even with using savestates,as it is very slow to recover from.

  99. Michael Todd-avatar

    The app is excelent, and plays all of my NES roms just fine, however I have an issue with the calibration of the controller. This may just be an issue with my phone, but I have tried recalibrating it, and the issue still remains. If this is an issue that can be fixed, I would rate 5 stars. A response would be much appreciated. Thanks.

  100. ryan olson-avatar

    after installing i thought it was popping open my browser and pushing ads. it wasnt, it was a file app i forgot i installed and deleted the icon for. anyway awesome NES emulator, and my favorite feature is that it will automatically search your device for ROMS, so its less confusing if you are not good at keeping track of filepaths and names. so far i have played Kid Icarus, Tysons Punch Out, Metal Gear, Zelda,and a couple Mega man games. it works pefectly with no hiccups. recommended.
