Definitely not the best. This Spectrum emulator comes in last place among many Android Spectrum emulators in my view. It works, but choosing not to blur the screen makes the screen far more blurred than my old 14" PAL TV with HW acceleration enabled, (Nexus 7) so adding scan lines (not available in the clean, but slow software rendering) just makes things worse. Flash loading only works for non-protected tape files and loading noise is either painfully loud or non-existant. Managing tape loading is more capable than others (notably Marvin wont let you skip ahead or rewind, which is a pain if you need to load levels or such) but far more complex than others. Using a BT Keyboard should mean I don't need the overlay, but I can't get rid of the on-screen joysitck and such. Many game files just don't load. USP, or Spectalator are vastly superior, but Marvin still beats this hands down. I can't see what the advanced options are without paying, which isn't much of an advertisement and I wouldn't pay on the basis of my experience of the free version. The additional systems (Coupe and Pentagon in particular) should be great, but not with this fuzzy a screen.

You have to pay, for the privilege of playing time that it doesn't come with?
