NES Emulator for the iPhone

So you will now be able to play Super Mario Bros. on your iPhone. I don’t know why you would want to, the input for the iPhone doesn’t exactly lend itself nicely to a regular platformer game. When playing the game you have a touchscreen controller, seems to me you would be a little clumsy playing this way.

“Presently there is no sound, and the emulator is a little slow (most likely due to the way I’m drawing onto the screen). And the control is a bit iffy (using an image of an actual controller, while cute, sucks).”

Here is a video of the emulator with links underneath.

Update: The application has been updated to speed it up and is available at the link above

  1. that’s frickin awesome. is it incredibly slow? do you think people will accidentally hit their iphone screen as hard as they used to hit the buttons on the controllers?
