Game Emulators

EGnuBoy
EGnuBoy is the EPOC version of GnuBoy, an open source emulator for the GameBoy classic and the GameBoy color. Performance is acceptable for the Series 7/Netbook. Sound is not supported yet. Needs copies of the ROMs. egnuboy.app
eMAME
MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. When used in conjunction with a game's data files (ROMs), MAME will more or less faithfully reproduce that game on a PC. MAME can currently emulate over 1500 classic arcade video games from the '70s and '80s. The ROM images that MAME utilizes are "dumped" from arcade games' original circuit-board ROM chips. MAME becomes the "hardware" for the games, taking the place of their original CPUs and support chips. Therefore, these games are NOT simulations, but the actual, original games that appeared in arcades. EMame is the port of MAME to EPOC32. emame.app Jan 2001 Check www.mame.net and www.mame.dk for roms.
Goby Game Boy Emulator
