    Best info About Emulators Thank You 😉

    1. One of the worst Ive seen.

  5. Here’s a few corrections to the original post for anyone interested:

    1. Nostalgia Nes – Works ok on most devices but fails with loading and running romhacks. Bloats your android with random game images, which are not associated with any save states or rom file s on your device.

    2. SuperRetro16 lite – WTF!? This is a SNES emulator, it’s pretty damn obvious from the image. Tested these out my arse!

    3. Nes Emulator 64 in 1 – Absolute garbage! One of the worst, avoid! Don’t even think about getting the 64 games in 1 nes rom from it to play on other emulators, there is no rom.. The game data is embedded in the app’s coding.. Underneath all the ads.

    4. NES.Emu free
    It’s OK.. But why bother with ads and a restricted capability of the lite version..? Don’t pay for the Pro Version from the playstore..
    Just google NES.Emu Pro APK and download the file directly!

    Go get it!

    5. John NES: lite or Pro versions – Don’t bother with it. It’s a mid – range emulator.
    If you try getting the PRO version Apk from google it will work for 1 day before blocked via playstore. The developer imbedded a tracing program into the app, and it constantly wastes background data sending app status reports.

    There. NES..Emu Pro is the best by far.

    -Go google and download NES.EMU PRO APK.
    -Click on the file you downloaded. Open your ‘My files’ then ‘Downloads’ and open the file.
    -A popup appears asking to install, select Allow installation.
    -View the app permissions, select Continue untill you see INSTALL.

    There, you know how to get Millions of paid games for free. Go find a GTASA APK..

  6. Why have you posted fake replies to yourself?
