RetroArch is a new, free (and ad-free) open source front end/framework for emulators, game engines, video games, media players, and other applications. It’s available for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV set-top box, but not the Mac.

As noted by AppleInsider, game enthusiasts cano enjoy their favorite titles across various Apple devices, but will have to source them independently and legally – as RetroArch only comes bundled with the game 2048.

With that in mind, here are the retro platforms that the app supports:

  • Amstrad CPC
  • Atari 2600
  • Atari 5200
  • Atari 7800
  • Atari Lynx
  • Bandai WonderSwan
  • Commodore Amiga
  • Commodore 64
  • Commodore 128
  • Commodore CBM-II
  • Commodore PET
  • Commodore Plus
  • Commodore VIC-20
  • ColecoVision
  • GCE Vectrex

  • Mattel Intellivision
  • Nintendo Entertainment System / Famicom (NES)
  • Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)
  • Nintendo Virtual Boy
  • Nintendo Game Boy Color
  • Nintendo Game Boy Advance
  • Nintendo DS
  • SNK Neo Geo
  • SNK Neo Geo CD
  • SNK Neo Geo Pocket
  • Sega Master System
  • Sega Game Gear
  • Sega Genesis / Mega Drive
