    SNESDroid's review

    Published: 2015-06-03, by .

    SNESdroid is a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) emulator for Android

    • Runs your Games Smoothly
    • Very Customizable
    • Not User Friendly
    • Audio is Botched Up

    "Bringing Back Old School!"


    SNESdroid allows users and fans of the original SNES play games from it on their smartphones and tablets. All the player has to do is download ROMS of the games they own and they are set to relive the Nintendo experience.


    The emulator's biggest plus point is how customisable it is. It allows the user to change get the button layout, reduce graphics and other settings for weaker phones and also has settings for anti-aliasing and the works. The games I tested ran smoothly and there weren't any issues emulation wise.


    The sound and audio seemed to be unclear during the testing of most games. Also, the default button placement and settings seemed to be a bit off, and this would prove to be a problem for newbies who do not know how to customise the app. So, all in all, pjs could say the app isn't exactly user friendly.

    See NESDroid and GambatteDroid if you enjoy this app.

    Does not require root.

    Support true multi-touch. Can run, jump and move all at the same time. Requires Android devices that support multi-touch.

    All other SNES emus on the market use SNES9x 1.4.3 which is significantly more efficient but sacrifices accuracy, audio quality and game compatibility.

    SNES9x 1.52 port. This will not run well on older hardware. Works on all devices Android 2.X to Ice cream Sandwhich 4.X. This is based on SNES9xNext which is the PS3 adaptation of SNES9x. All its features will eventually appear in the Android port. Source links below. This does not run as well as SNES EX but it is using a more up to date SNES9x therefore better audio and higher compatibility.

    Would be nice if it could find an external memory card or did a search to find the roms. Overall it needs more options. I still prefer "John Snes" better.
