    Hi, I was just wondering if the NES Emulator for the touch is any good e.g. any lag, glitches.

    Yeah I do the same thing, down instead of right. But like you said it does get easier. Made my already awesome touch even awesomer.

    go ahead and give it a try I think it is really entertaining. And if you like it I would consider getting the GBA emulator (gpsphone) which is even runner in my opinion.

    tried it today - that is the only problem - the D pad is very small even in landscape...but it's sweet!

    The lack of actual firm buttons make it very difficult to play most games. It is very good for strategy games and RPGs where you have time to do the action.

    IMHO....the NES emu is virtually unplayable, especially in landscape mode.
    While some statagy games are Ok, anything else isnt really worth the effort, I ended up deleting it....and I wanted to like it bad!

    The GBA emu, however, is a much better effort. Although the play screen is smaller, the controls are much larger, making for a better gaming experience. I won't get into the GBA vs NES graphics debate, but it should be obvious where the eye candy is.

    Just compare playing any NES Mario game on the NES emu vs. SMW2 on the GBA emu, that will settle any comparative concerns you may have......
