If you have grown bored of playing Game Boy Advanced games on your Android smartphone or tablet with the help of a GBA emulator for Android, it’s time to put that down for a couple of hours. Why? – because mobile app developers are now creating Nintendo DS emulators for Android devices. Low-end Android powered devices will, of course, miss out of this great opportunity to play hundreds of Nintendo DS games straight on an Android phone or tablet.
Like I said before, there are a couple of Nintendo DS emulators available for the Android mobile operating system. Some are free, some are not. The bad part about the Nintendo DS emulators for Android with a price tag is that games are unplayable. Instead, a free Nintendo DS emulator for Android known as NDS4Droid and released by Jeffrey Quesnelle is available for free Via Google Play, however, users can support the developer by donating money.
To find the Android Nintendo DS emulator, you can use the details below :
- Application Name : NDS4Droid
- Price : FREE
- File Size : 7.6 MB
- Android Version Required : v2.3.3 and up
- Developer : Jeffrey Quesnelle
- Link : NDS4Droid – Google Play
NDS4Droid allows the Android device owner to play any Nintendo DS game once the ROM is on the device. Unlike some of the popular GBA emulators for Android, the Nintendo DS emulator does not require a BIOS file to work. Of course, you will have to hunt for the ROMs yourself to actually play DS games on Android.
Some examples of DS games that one can play are listed below :
New Super Mario Brothers
( New Super Mario Brothers gameplay on an Android device )
( Playing Pokemon Diamond on an Android device )
After release 19 of NDS4Droid, Nintendo DS games that run on Android with the help of the emulator are actually playable. The update gave the application a 7-10% frames per second performance boost. Release 20 introduced support for the OUYA gaming console.
