    Has anyone with an Evo 4G currently tried these game apps? I wanted to know how they run, and if the touch screen controls respond decently. Since the device has multi-touch I'm not to worried.

    These things running badly can be a deal breaker for me.

    Not having the ability to play 15 year old games is really the deal breaker?

    I installed the Nesoid emulator earlier tonight and briefly played Legend of Zelda. It ran smoothly and the on-screen keyboard overlay worked fine. I'll get around to trying some other games/emulators soon.

    When you get an emulator does it comes with games or do you have to hunt those down on the interwebs?

    I am so tired of that word "deal breaker" way to overused.

    As side not there is a video floating around of someone playing Mike Tyson Punchout on the EVO, looked to playing rather well.

    Believe it or not, yes.

    I love Android for the emulation apps over everything else. It allows me to carry them with me everywhere, along with my phone and internets all in one package. The Moment was great, but the 3 models I went through had TERRIBLE battery problems.

    A modded PSP isn't easy to carry around all the time. Plus its broken and I don't feel like fixing it.

    Don't dis mah Retro games, they are still better than the things released today.

    You have to hunt down ROMs. But a quick Google search will find you all you want.

    Don't be bitter that you get your face smashed in Modern Warfare :D


    I had a N64 emulator once and enjoyed it. Wish that existed on Android. The only game I'd want is for a Gameboy emulator - Nail 'N Scale.

    Good luck getting an N64 emulator to run on any current phone. I'm sure 1 year from now, it'll be possible though.

    I'm also a big gamer and hope to get all these emulators on my phone. I don't expect anything but the most simplest games to work well though since it's all touchscreen.

    im very intereted in how snesoid works as well. i never had one (genesis here) and am looking forward to catching up on games like crono trigger, secret of mana, etc. its not a dealbreaker for me but it is something i really want to work well, especially since the games on android pale in quantity and definately in quantity to the iphone.

    Remote play with a PS3 might be cool too. I'll stick with my consoles and PC for gaming.

    Didn't specifically mention Gameboid, but that's the only emulator I've tried on my Evo so far. The multitouch works really well (B+dpad for running) and no problems at all. The only thing that sucks is that Wiimote Controller won't work because the Evo is running HTC Sense which has a bad bluetooth stack.

    Wait the PS3 controller is bluetooth, and the EVO has HDMI... old school games on my HDTV, yummy! :D

    I really hope ZodTTD will release some of his emulators on Android as he makes amazing stuff.

    i have all of the emulators and a run great. the only problem is, when you press 2 buttons (the directional pad is one button) it's fine but when you press more than 2 it does not work. I thought this wouldn't be an issue on the EVOs multitouch screen.

    That's not cool. I mean, it's no deal breaker for me, but I'll run emulators just as much as other apps. I was hoping I could play SNES games where I'd have to run and jump at the same time. That's three buttons.

    Get the Nintendo WII controller. My friend tested on it my G1 and it worked so good.

    But I think it doesn't work with HTC Sense.
