nds4droid


nds4droid is a free Nintendo DS emulator. It is still in it's infancy but supports many features you'd expect like save states and sound. It also supports the OUYA game console.

The nds4droid FAQ can be found here: http://jeffq.com/blog/nds4droid-faq/

Unlike other DS emulators nds4droid does not not violate the GPL, and it's completely open source.

Unfortunately, Nintendo DS emulation is still somewhat slow, even on higher end phones, but we'll continue to make improvements :). If you're having trouble with performance, try different "frame skip" options.

Recent changes:
Release 45:
-Changed the default key mapping to open the options menu to "KEYCODE_BUTTON_START." This should be a better default for controller-based systems like the OUYA or the NVIDIA SHIELD. It will require a full reinstall of the app for this default to take effect.
-Added the ability to access the settings screen from the ROM browser options menu.
-Enabled compatibility for devices without a touchscreen.

It works! It does lag quite a bit but when your at a mate's chilling with some tunes chatting away you don't mind a 5 minute wait for your next move. Also to be honest I've downloaded several ds emulator apps including dsoid (maybe because I bought it free from a different app store that might be why) none of them worked, and I used the same roms I use for this app. So not perfect but best free ds rom player.
