RetroArch Android is a very special emulator that, instead of focusing on a single console, such as Playstation or SuperNintendo, attempts to include all kinds of consoles and games, thus being able to emulate thousands of game titles to perfection.

The amazing complete list of consoles -with the emulator used in parenthesis- that RetroArch is able to emulate is the following: PlayStation 1 (PCSX ReARMed), Super Nintendo (SNES9x Next), Nintendo Entertainment System (FCEUmm / NEStopia), GameBoy / GameBoy Color (Gambatte), GameBoy Advance (VBA Next), Arcade (Final Burn Alpha), Neo Geo Pocket Color (Mednafen NGP), Virtual Boy (Mednafen VB), Sega Genesis/Mega Drive (Genesis Plus GX), Sega Master System/Sega Game Gear (Genesis Plus GX), Sega CD / Mega CD (Genesis Plus GX), PC Engine / PC Engine CD (Mednafen PCE Fast), WonderSwan Color / Crystal (Mednafen Wonderswan).

As if the complete catalogues of all these video game consoles weren’t enough, RetroArch Android also lets you emulate Doom 1, Doom 2, Ultimate Doom and Final Doom, to perfection. Why? Because they're Doom!

Just in case all this compatibility wasn't enough, RetroAch is also compatible with USB and Bluetooth controllers, which means we can plug in a controller at any time and play on our tablet as if it was a real video game console.

RetroArch Android is, by far, the most complete emulator in existence. There isn’t a single other application with the potential of allowing us to enjoy more games on an Android terminal. It can, however, get to take up quite a bit of space on the SD card.
