    A friend of mine and I were just talking about how playing the wrong games on the Droid will give a person Carpel Tunnel. Last night I tried Megaman Zero and Castlevania, both on GBA. Dont think Ill do that one again and just stick to the GBA. I already know to stay away from fighting games, especially the arcade ones. No KOF, Samurai Shodown or Marvel VS Capcom here. But Im curious, what games does everyone else play here?

    Im also curious if anyone has made any headway in any RPGs such as Chrono Trigger. Way I see it this screen is better than a GBA but not quite as good as a DS. Notwithstanding the controls and possiblity of getting a txt or phone call whilst playing the game to interrupt, this might not be half a bad thing to play such an RPG on.

    Hello,
    I useSnesoid and Nesoid for emulation of NES and SNES, its fantastic. I am actually making my way through ChronoTrigger right now! I works great on Snesoid. Its smooth and the text is bug enough to be read easily. I don't know about the other emulators out there but the Snesoid lets you setup custom button configs that work really well, so playing ChronoTrigger is great with the button config I use. I also play super mario 3 on Nesoid, which is a little trickier trying to play with the Droids keyboard,partially with the Dpad being onthe left which is opposite of most gamepads. Sometimes I will run it in screen flip mode so that the keyboard is on the top and the screen below so that the pad is on the left side (basicaly holding the open phone upside down). It sounds weird but it makes more send to my brain to play SMB3 with the pad on the left, lol. :icon_ banana:

    Not sure how DS emulation would work with one screen...

    Anyway, I've found the NES Mega Man titles to run very well, and Sonic 1-3 are certainly fun with accelerometer control. The D-Pad's lack of squaredom makes games requiring precise four way or diagonal control near impossible, so that's about all I've tried thus far.

    I beg of you to please play Friday the 13th on the original Nintendo.

    You will not regret it. Just don't play it late at night unless you want nightmares.

    ^lol I remember playing that years ago.

    Mostly playing FF6(3) on gameboid
    Also:
    Romance of the three Kingdoms on Snesoid
    Wizardry games on Nesoid


    One that I was really looking forward to and doesnt work is Dungeons and Dragons:Warriors of the Eternal Sun on Gensoid. It runs, but it doesnt show the character bars on the right so its impossible to play. I've downloaded 5 different copies of it hoping to find one that works, they all run fine on computer emulators :(

    Chrono Trigger and Pokemon Firered/Leafgreen so far. After I finish Chrono Trigger I'm going to play Secret of Mana and FF II (IV) also. Possibly the original Star Ocean, too (pretty sure that was SNES anyway).

    All three of the Donkey Kong Country games for SNES work really well. DKC was my first ever video game so it's a cool feeling to have it on my phone.

    Also DKC 3 was released in 1996 after the N64 had been released (I think) and has some of the best graphics available in an SNES game.

    agreed, I've been playing the hell out of all the dkc games... seems harder on the Droid though! Maybe its the controls but I've been getting a lot of game overs...

    Playing secret of mana, ff6/3 and chrono trigger. I tried playing a mega man, but I don't think I can handle an action game with out a controller.

    I'm enjoying my all time favourite game; The Lost Vikings II (the prequel is just as good). I'd advice anyone loving the classics giving The Lost Vikings a go! It's the kind of game that has it all; adventure, puzzles, action and great humour. It's a very different kind of platform game that involves solving puzzles, controlling three different characters (on at a time), all with great sound tracks, a whole bunch of different leves, cool storyline and humours dialogs. The first few levels are really easy with lots of hints along the way to get you started, but it becomes increasingly more difficult when you get further into the game. Fortunately you get a new password for each level, so there is really not much need for save/load states, and as such you can use the lite version of Snesoid.

    Here's more info about this awesome game: The Lost Vikings - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    and here's a youtube video showing the gameplay:

    Growing up with a Commodore 64 and later on getting into the 8 - 16-bit consoles, I still think those old games have a gameplay superior to most modern games where you have to spend countles hours just getting into it (don't have the time, nor the patience for that anymore)... I much prefer the vintage games you could just pick up and play like 20 minutes now and then. :)
