"Classic Nintendo Games At Your Fingertips"

Reviewed by / Feb 24, 2015

Go back in time with this able original Nintendo game simulator.


Who doesn't like taking a trip back in time with old Nintendo games? Despite some drawbacks, John NES Emulator manages to do its job reasonably well. Taking a step into the time machine will at the minimum make downloading the game worth the price of admission.


John NES Simulator provides a healthy dose of nostalgia; it's not hard to occasionally pick it back up just to be transported back to your childhood. For what it sets out to do, the game renders the graphics and sounds well and provides a decent number of options.


A large ad bar will dominate the top half of the screen. Its blinking can be an annoying distraction for those playing the game on small screens. The controls are also slightly buggy and won't respond to the user's input in a timely fashion.

    I have had this for a while, and I finally updated it, and now there is a large ad at the top of the screen and the full screen ad when I start a game. Do not update. How cheap can these developers be?

    Would love if you could save game profiles till example key mappings so that you don't have remember and change everytime you change a game or start the app

    Had a good time reliving the old games. Using the phone to control is tough but that's not the apps fault. Wonder if it would work with moga.
