The Emulation Realm

Releases with ports for two or more operating systems.

Citra - Windows (64bit)  Citra - Linux (64bit)  Citra - Mac  Citra (Source)

What's New:

This is the latest nightly build. Source changes can be found at GitHub.

3DNes - Windows  3DNes - Linux  3DNes - Mac

3DNes uses an algorithm to convert 2D sprites of the NES into 3D objects, bringing new life to many NES classics. This isn't a simple case of loading roms and playing the game however. The emulator requires the addition of a 3dn file that you can create yourself or download community made files at 3DN Repository.

The emulator itself works well with basic feature like support for controllers and save / load states.

Just for fun I tried the stereoscopic mode on my 3D TV. The textures are more defined but nothing on the screen actually pops out.

There is a Pro version ($5) that supports FPS (First Person Shooter) view and TrinusVR integration.

ScummVM - Android

What's New:

- Support for several new games, bugfixes.
