Gamesome Frontend

Gamesome Frontend


This is NOT an emulator and games are not included!!!
Before badly rating this app, read the support wiki or contact me if you have any problem.

The Gamesome Frontend is the first emulation frontend for Android!
This app will keep your roms organized, all you have to do is put your roms in separate folders - one for each console - and Gamesome Frontend will do the magic for you! Gamesome will identify each game in your collection*, download its cover, title and some further information. Once the scan is complete, you can view your collection in two different ways: as a grid of boxarts or as a list, with a side panel containing game informations. You can even search a game through your collection by title.

What makes Gamesome great, is its capability to launch your games with your favorite emulator**! One unique and fancy interface will handle all your games!

Since version 1.05.1 the app is developed on a Nvidia Shield kindly offered by Nvidia USA itself, and future updates will enhance controller support!

Crashes but good looking Love the organization and images. Paid for app but, have issues with it. Would like to edit my own image on some games and consoles. Maybe sounds?The arcade mostly. Options to customize the frontend and stability are my only complaints. Hopefully it gets better soon.

Excellent front end, compliments my new JXD gaming phone very nicely, author is very responsive and quickly helped me sort out an issue I've had with the Favorites screen.

This blows away Nostalgia on OUYA. There's so many options. You can hide games. You can add info for each game. You can add your own boxart if you like. It works well too. I really recommend buying it and not pirating it. It's worth every penny and you have update support. It's the best commercially available frontend for retro consoles on any device. I'm using it on the Nvidia Shield Android TV. It runs flawlessly. This is a must buy for fans of retro emulation!
