Marat Zayzullin has been coding emulators for a fair amount of time. His emulators are already on 3 platforms: Windows, Symbian and PocketPC and now we can add a forth platform to that list, Android. Marat has brought over all seven of his emulators onto the Android platform which covers various console systems.
Going by the developer name Garbage Research, all seven of his emulators are available on the Android Market right now. Four of them will set you back $1.99 while the remaining three are free for download. Here is the full list of emulators:
- iNES – $1.99
- VGB (Gameboy emulator) – $1.99
- MasterGear – $1.99
- VGBA (Gameboy Advanced) – $1.99
- fMSX – Free
- Speccy – Free
- ColEm – Free
Most of these emulators run games from multiple variants of the systems they are emulating. For example the MasterGear emulator will run games for Master System, GameGear, Mark 2, Mark 3, SG1000, SC3000, and SF7000 on your Android device. Same goes for iNES, VGB and some of his other emulators so it would be wise to read the description before downloading these so you know exactly what they all can run.
Now the real question is, how long will these last on the Android Market? Sometimes Google cracks down on emulators and sometimes not. Hopefully they won’t with these new emulators.
