    I'm new to the whole android experience as i use a moto Q that is completely inferior. That all changes June 4th and i want to have a sweet game or 2 on my Evo. I've seen these emu's for sega snes and nes and they look really really cool.

    Can anyone recommend an emu and how you get them setup and what not.

    Thanks

    The emulators are fine, but the touch sensors on the HD2 have response issues with games you would play on them. Be interesting to see if HTC updated them. If the game emulators are playable, the answer is probably yes.

    Good point but from the videos I have seen the multitouch on the EVO is just as good as the iPhone which is fine for emulators.

    I'm waiting for ZodTTD to make some emulators for Android, from the videos I have seen I am not impressed with what is available.

    This is why I'm waiting for a Qwerty version of the Evo or Galaxy S so I can use that to game :)

    i'm probably going to get an snes emulator as i was always a genesis guy but my question is how well does the game saving process work? i want to play rpg's like secret of mana or final fantasy so are there any issues with gamesaves when using emulators?

    The paid version of the emulators can save your game. Free ones don't.

    May not be a good idea to link to places that offer ROM dumps that they do not have the right to distribute. It is kind of silly since you probably aren't gonna be buying those games anytime soon but it's still warez as those games are not in the public domain.

    I'm also wondering about the multi-touch game play on the Evo. I'll never get any work done with a SNES on my hip. LOL

    Listen up folks..Touch screen just sucks when playing the Emulators..The best phone to use is the "Motorola Cliq"(Only the cliq with the keyboard) It has a D pad on it..An actual "Directional" pad, so you dont have struggle with easy directions..I traded in my G1 just for this!!...I have been playing "super mario world","Populus" and "out of this world" all day.. The website link removed has every rom I could think of.

    Stop both of you.

    Any more "bickering" will result in warnings.
