Fancy yourself re-playing your favourite console games from your
childhood? Or perhaps you never had the opportunity to own a console
of your own and play those classics. Then this app is just for you.
Retro Arch is a video game console emulator like no other. It supports
multiple platforms, meaning you can run it on anything from Android to
Windows (also your browser!) and it can emulate a whole range of
classic gaming consoles such as the PlayStation 1, NES (Nintendo
Entertainment System) and the Gameboy.
Do You Need It?
Only if you’re a gaming nerd or if you’d like to re-visit or
experience the old school games such as Pokemon series, Mario series,
etc. on your mobile device. It’s especially handy since nowadays most
of the old game consoles are obsolete and no longer supported by their
companies. Plus, you get a whole range of consoles in a single device!
1. Impressive range of support it offers to multiple platforms as well
as multiple gaming consoles.
2. Silky smooth installation and operation.
3. Highly customizable.
1. Large size of the app.
2. Works only on the Internal Memory.
How Does It Work?
First, you have to download and install the Retro Arch app from Google
Play. Along with this you’ll need the ROM of the game you wish to
play. There are many websites from where you can download these ROMs.
Second, you need to run the app and press the “Load Core” option. This
allows you to select the gaming console you wish to emulate. Then
press the “Load Content” option and select the game ROM from your
phone’s memory. Let it load, and you are good to go! Happy gaming.
