    This emulator has a lot of potential, but needs some work on the actual emulation of the games. Tried different roms of the same game, some work better than others, but some glitches persist. Contra en SMB1 are the biggest let down for me. Other than that, you get all the good stuff from Super Retro 16: good controller support, best UI of any emulator app, etc. Full Review

    WASTE of money! I love super retro 16, but every rom I download runs so glitchy and I can't even enjoy one game. Super unstable game play😞. What a worthless bunch of hacks. You should be ashamed of charging people to play a broken app. Try classic boy or any other free emulator Full Review

    Love the interface and great platform support from phone to TV. Game/save state syncing is super convenient. On a minor note, some UI elements could stand to be a higher resolution. Edit: Dev fixed icon issue. Great responsiveness! Full Review

    Huge fan of the retro series so i grabbed this. Broken to hell as far as properly emulating games unfortunately but im not going to refund. Im going to keep it in hopes the developer just gives this an update. I'll change the rating accordingly. EDIT : Still no update after a month. Removing a star. Full Review

    The only reason I am rating this as "just OK" is because aside from the beautiful UI and on-screen controls, is that the latest update on 12/12 broke emulation for the most part. There is a lot of screen clipping present and I am not sure if the developer is (1) aware or (2) working on a fix. I have emailed them several times about the issue but have not received a response. I just emailed the developer again today, 1/2/18 after my last email from 12/18/17 had gone unanswered. Rather than bash the developer or call this program a piece of junk, I'm just going to say it's "OK" and give the developer a chance to fix the issue with emulation. Once emulation is fixed going forward, I can HIGHLY recommend this emulator as it does everything quite well. If the latest update you see for this application is from December 12th 2017, steer clear since there is no "lite" version of the app to try before you buy. Full Review
