It’s possible to play classic Nintendo games like Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda on your phone or tablet thanks to the dozens of NES emulators for Android. You can even play games that use the NES zapper gun such as Duck Hunt.
These NES emulators are available for Android phones and tablets. Check the system requirements for individual apps to determine if they are compatible with your device.
How NES Emulators for Android Work
An video game emulator is a program that simulates, or emulates, the hardware of a game system. Emulators for the Nintendo Entertainment System became popular on PCs in the late 1990s with the rise of the web, so it’s no surprise that they eventually made their way to mobile phones.
In addition to an emulator, you will need ROMs for the games you want to play. Video game ROMs can be downloaded from torrent websites, but the laws regarding the distribution of ROMs differ from region to region.
Install antivirus software on your device before downloading files online.
