Burnt out on Minecraft and Angry Birds on your Android device? Why not try something old school?
The Google Play market has been a bit on-again-off-again with having emulators and ported games on the market. But id Software seems to be OK with what Jack Nui has been doing for Doom, Quake, and now Wolfenstein. At at any rate, here's a few apps that I have on my tablet may be of interest to Android gamers.
- Sixaxis Controller - Use Bluetooth to connect a Playstation 3 Sixaxis controller (sold separately) to your tablet or smartphone. (Requires Root!)
- Emulators for Droid - This app provides resouces and ROM links for old games.
- MAME4Droid - An arcade game emulator.
- DroidEmuLite - A console game emulator supporting NES, SNES, GBC, GBA, Sega GameGear, Sega Genesis.
- Mupen64Plus - A console game emulator supporting Nintendo 64
- Doom - The PC game from the DOS days ported to Android.
- Quake - The multiplayer PC game that Trent Reznor contributed to.
- A SkiFree Clone - A port of the old school Microsoft application. Watch out of Yeti!
- Living Neko - An adorable kitty on your Android!
- Rodent's Vengeance - Another old Microsoft Windows game
- Super Crunchers - And educational and exciting game for both kids and the kids at heart.
Still searching for emulators for Playstation, SNK, Neo-Geo. But this list should give you plenty to play with. Anyway, back to business. Let's get
tmux to do something cool.
