So many ignorant people!! Please people read the description before leaving a negative comment, even on high end pc's that cost thousands the saturn has problems running so you can't expect it to run full speed on an android phone, keep up the good work and we are eagerly awaiting any updates or new versions :).

  • April 21, 2015

Note 2 App works good. Took chris is advice on changing the options it works better but still alittle choppy. Playing dragon force on the go is awesome!! Would be 5 stars if it could go at full speed.

  • June 22, 2014

Not working choppy gameplay Really was looking forward to playing shining in the Holy Ark finally got it to work only for gameplay to be choppy highly disappointed

  • June 13, 2014

Freezes on everything Please please fix this. Dragon force is the coolesr game ever. I cant even pick a clan with out it freezing on me.

  • Sept. 17, 2013

Good work so far! The Saturn is notoriously hard to develop for. Support their efforts to save Sega's classic console. Awesome job so far, guys!

  • April 21, 2014

It starts the game But its way too choppy and it refuses to play at all... it freezes up almost immediately and youre lucky if you even get to the start menu. Poor performance at best. Not even worth downloading.

  • Sept. 12, 2013

Come ON guys! There is a working Dreamcast emulator that runs perfectly smooth and this is a laggy mess. The Dreamcast is 128 bits and hella more advanced than Saturn. If this has been made, why can't you make this emulator run smooth? Come on, it isn't PS4, it's an old 32 bit console. I gotta give it stars for it actually working, great work so far, but it has to improve. I UNDERSTAND the console is hard to program for, but with today's hardware it shouldn't be a big problem. I'm not a hater, I'm just a bit disappointed

  • Jan. 1, 2015

Great emulator This is a great emulator but the unfortunate thing, other than the Saturn being difficult to program for, is that there are so many negative reviews here from ignorant people. Just because the Saturn is an old system with slow specs and that a ps1 emulator runs perfectly fine doesn't mean anything. The hardware architecture is completely different and even the Saturn emulators for the PC ran into problems early on. Do not even bother downloading this if you are expecting 100% accurate emulation or if you are going to leave a negative review because whatever game you want to play doesn't work or runs slow. This is a free application that is a work in progress and we should be glad that we have the chance to try it out. Also... Reading the description of the application you are downloading before you scurry back to leave a hateful negative review would help a lot of you.

  • Nov. 30, 2014

FAKE!!! I wanted to download megaman x 4 which requires a saturn emulator and this one did not even work. to top this off, my virus app detected a credit card theft virus in the app

  • May 28, 2014

Has potential, works good on my NVIDIA Shield Tablet! For people who are saying that they have phones like an s2 or so, you people don't understand emulators obviously. Even the most powerful phone out today will struggle with the emulator, simply because how it was built. Back then game developers didn't want to make games because of the hardware... Good job guys, maybe there will be a Saturn emulator for Android in the future with excellent playability!

  • April 8, 2015

Doesn't work It doesn't find the rom even though their website claims that rom is compatible. Try harder, it would be nice to play panzer dragon on my phone.

  • Nov. 20, 2013

It works! And it does it unbelievable slow, I know it's an alpha hehe... Keep the good work!

  • March 11, 2014

Noobs, please note... With respect, you may not know how difficult emulation for the Sega Saturn has proven to be on ANY device, even top line PC rigs. Saturn, unlike PS1, had a reputation for being a remarkably exotic console and difficult to develop games for, which must make developing an Android app, keeping it light in size, a hellish task. The "name.emu" apps are some of the most consistently efficient emus on Android. Stick with it, as app-builds and android devices improve, they'll get there.

  • Feb. 18, 2015

Needs more work I love the saturn. I love dragon force. I love albert odessy. These games are playable the way the emu works at the moment but you really have to love it to get any enjoyment out of it in its current state. PLEASE TRY YOUR HARDEST TO FIX THIS. I LOVE YOU BUT YOUR KILLING ME. Thank you.

  • Aug. 19, 2014

Perfect for the Nvidia Shdildo Has built in controller support for the Nvidia shield and ran my obscure Japanese demo disc iso flawlessly. ( soul hacker &ronde) Works better than most emulators. If it doesn't work for you, get a shield.

  • Jan. 8, 2015

fix now i tried playing independence day but ends up crashing my phone fix this and ill rate five stars

  • March 30, 2014

Old memories in my hands Running this on an S5, it's such a trip to be able to play games I loved as a kid anywhere I want, whenever I want. This app works really well for me, the lag is only noticeable when the sound is turned up. Considering I was worried I wouldn't be able to play my favorite game at all, ever again (Panzer Dragoon Saga) since I lost my original discs and don't really want to shell out $400 for a new set, this app is a dream come true. Shame that some people can't stop to read the description.

  • April 21, 2015

Dragonforce Great emulator, now I have Dragonforce on the go, working great on my HTC one M8, if you're having issues read Chris's post worked right away, just have no sound is all

  • April 30, 2014

Working Beta! Working but slow since its still on Beta. Excited if you are able to finish the projects, ignore the one star rating those are noobs. Please finish the project, i would love dragon force on the go thanks

  • March 3, 2015

Not a bad start I heard the original dev passed this project to the dev of mupen64ae, so hopefully we will see new versions soon.

  • Dec. 4, 2013

Best so far Playing with options and playing with phone clockspeed got it near full speed but sound is still choppy. Rooted sg4 emulation world is slowly fading out. What can we expect its good enough to play muted for sure. Shining force played normal but choppy sound

  • Sept. 21, 2013

Great It works for me great. But everyone, read the description next time. It says not every game is compatible! And no, it doesn't steal your credit card info. People are saying that to get people to not download it. I checked and there's nothing bad in it.

  • April 19, 2015

Works but slow..... Real slow. Okay I am testing this on two devices one is the DooGee Dagger (antutu score in the 31000) and a laptop with android X86 (score in the 54000 both are opengl es 2.0 compliant.) The phone slow and choppy. The laptop plays well on most games though there are some games that are still slow. Going to try the allwinner A80 optimusboard (scores in the 68k ~70k plus have opengl es 3.0 compliance) so hopefully it'll play at full speed on all my games. The emulator is good, but your device needs to be ultra fast.

  • Oct. 18, 2014

Great app Runs great on my HTC ONE, beautiful rendering. Still a work in progress, but a great app none the less! Keep up the good work devs!

  • Dec. 10, 2014

Sega saturn : CPU 2× Hitachi SH-2 (32-bit) RISC (28.6 MHz ) ......... i have s2 plus dual core 1.2 GHz and 32 bit and ram 1 GB but the game is too too slow why??? by the way playstation need more cpu and ram but the application it run so good.... it need more work when it run good on old device i'll give you 5 stars

  • Dec. 18, 2014

I appreciate the effort but.......... The app just stops loading save states randomly. I'm trying to enjoy some classics on my phone........and oh hey, force close when loading.......start over and then oh actually we can't load again. If you fix this app it would be awesome, but right now its just a let down

  • Nov. 3, 2014

This is what I rate you instead of 1 star I want 0 stars for You ☆☆☆☆☆ This emulator is useless I tried to download Sonic R it failed 8 times I thought there was somthing wrong but no its this dumb emulator uhh.. I guess I'll use my gamecube sonic gems collection instead. T_T I mean yes so far the emulators work except this one. And I forgot to mention I'm deleting this app off my phone until you guys fix the problem or make a new update.

  • May 4, 2015

I can get the game to load(I am trying to play Iron Storm) but I have no control (no gameplay).Can anyone tell me how to fix my options so it will work?

  • Aug. 9, 2014

It works but it doesn't work The speed is not going well help

  • April 12, 2015

Nvidia Shield Tablet device reviewed on It's almost there. I'm not sure if the emulator could be tweaked to run full speed or if we just need a more power X1 chip in the future. Either way it seems like most of the frame work is in place and I like what I see so far.

  • Feb. 5, 2015

Dragon Force works great for Note 2 Instructions: saturnemu or yabause, link to actual website through app download direct from site. I couldn't get the bios to load the game from the saturn dashboard from app downlded from store. SATURNS roms ARE .RAR. U need 2 download an app to unpack .rar. unpacks/unzips into 2 formats: .cue and .bin. From saturnemu mine will load .bin. Make sure when you playing with saturnemu options to get ur gamespeed right. Options-> video Frsmeskip set 0. Cpu-> gpu off. Hgest color off.

  • Nov. 21, 2013

Broken I tried Saturn ROMs and the emu didn't even show it as a choice,please fixed

  • May 16, 2015

Not bad,not good Game compatibility is limited. And some games have some glitches

  • July 29, 2014

Didn't work I downloaded this just to play one game and it didn't even work when I know that rom worked.

  • Feb. 16, 2015

NEED MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS This is way too choppy and I can't even see the controls (the textures are the same as the current frame). Maybe I'll use this again one day, but not until this s**t gets fixed.

  • Dec. 1, 2013

As expected Saturn emulators are near impossible to get right. The Saturn tech was crazy. This is very unstable, but it's about the best there is.

  • Aug. 24, 2013

It didn't run very well Yeah, I played sonic R on this emulator. The game run well until the actual game start. It as slow as shit, it's glitched. Meh, please fix it. I will give it 5 stars when it's fixed

  • Dec. 13, 2013

Better than I expected Its running very slow but its a huge progress from last year. Looking forwars to it getting better and finally being able to play shining force 3 for the first time in 12 years

  • May 21, 2014

It starts the game But its way too choppy and it refuses to play at all... it freezes up almost immediately and youre lucky if you even get to the start menu. Poor performance at best. Not even worth downloading.

  • Sept. 12, 2013

Doesn't work Games are unplayable if you can even load the rom I had a play of sonic r the other day and it worked fine albeit unplayable with too many gfx glitches now wanting to try and use it again for some weird reason no ROMs that I have work now... It just uselessly says unable to load ROM/iso/file

  • Nov. 12, 2015

It works but... It's really slow, but it still works, so wait a few years for better phones and better optimisation and this will be working smoothly

  • Aug. 14, 2015

Good Saturn Emulator Can someone help? I'm running this on an Asus Transformer TF300T with android 4.2.1 and the app is having issues where when I try to load a save state it closes the emulator. Has anyone else had this issue and is there a solution to it? Also I have not found a good Bios file to use with this emulator I'd love to know where to get one. Overall VERY happy with this emulator otherwise it runs a little sluggishly for me but I'm very glad to be able to play Dragon Force again.

  • Nov. 23, 2015

Ahem Can you guys sort this I can't play my favorite racing game Daytona USA in ghe Saturn emulator it show blck screen for a while then it only shown a picture that looked like windows XP default background in Samsung Galaxy s3

  • July 23, 2015

Loving it but the lag This could be the best emulator out there the only problem is lag everything else is awesome

  • Sept. 13, 2015

Awful 0 stars Does not work don't bother even trying it. Galaxy note 4

  • Oct. 18, 2015

I don't know to extract there Sega Saturn games.. Plz help me to find ,how to extract the game for Sega Saturn.and how to use it..thanks guys..

  • April 7, 2016

Good start Over clocked nexus 7 and with some tweaking it is OK but sound buffer still underruns and the game is still slow. Notice it is not utilising all 4 cores either so can't help thinking multi-core support from the emu would bump up the performance.

  • March 14, 2015

Brilliant Works great at full speed on shield tablet, but no sound. Not all games I tried worked, so far rayman parodius and a couple of others work. Don't forget to download the BIOS there is a app on play store that does it for you.

  • Feb. 1, 2015

wtf sonic r was laggy and glitchy. I understand that the sega saturn was hard to program for so therefore hard to emulate especially on a mobile device but it doesn't seem as though the developers are even working on the app considering It hasn't been updated since 2013

  • March 7, 2015

? Was that it? Work seems to have all but stalled on this project. A pity because Sega Saturn has many great games. But it was fun while it lasted. Saturn emulation sparked hope and nostalgia to fans of Dragon Force even before they were a band, but as of this time, an Android port seems to be years away. Please don't give up the dream, guys. Here, have my five stars.

  • Sept. 20, 2014

This Application has a Virus!!! Really??? Why in the heck does this Application have a Virus? All of the Emulators that you have created so far are really good and they don't have any Viruses at all. So just why does this one Android Application need to have a Virus????? The worst part about the Virus is that isn't like something that slows down your Cell Phone or anything like that. Instead, it has to be a Virus that steals your Credit Card information.

  • June 10, 2014

Needs work Galaxy Note 3. I don't think this app will get the love it needs. Was really looking forward to playing Shining Force 3 on my phone. This emulator will play every game I've loaded but they're not playable. Runs at about 3 fps

  • July 15, 2014

Im disapointed I had faith in u v andriod all of them work but not this the roms i try so had to get is sonic jam a game i seen but never played ex sonic 123/sonic and kux just sonic world and others soo sad i hope it dosrnt stay like this

  • June 27, 2014

Played a game then stopped working Until I can play the game without crashing. It stopped working, and until I learn what the problem is, I'm going to continue to hate this

  • July 19, 2015

If possible, Moga Support??? Would love to see this and a Dreamcast Emu. Hoping that this and the only one DC Emu I found will support Controllers either by USB, BT, Device, and any others. Hate Touch Screens since they are not really that accurate. Will be generous and give a 3 Star for the effort.==== Even on Nvidia Shield nothing plays.

  • Jan. 23, 2014

Choppy I would rate it lower, but this is the only EMU that I found that actually works. I hope for updates soon, I miss playing Guardian Hero's and my all time favorite DRAGON FORCE!

  • Feb. 5, 2015

Nope Too choppy, got my hopes up and brought them down. I guess il just have to play on my laptop

  • Dec. 25, 2013

DRAGON FORCE yeah its working too choppy. Even I have quadcore 1.2ghz and 1 Gig RAM. Please develop the app.

  • March 15, 2015

Not ignorant/this needs work uoYabause works just fine on Android smartphones. I have no problems on my nexus 5. The only issue I have with it is the crappy key mapping and lack of save state management. Saturn. Emu has good tools and is similar to GBA.emu in terms of control, but it is a sad pos, when it comes to emulating games at a playable rate. Get cracking dev team, you're doing something wrong if another app works just fine with a Yabause back end

  • May 30, 2016

Almost got it Sad I can't play burning rangers yet, but I like the way everything else is the controls are really responsive . I look forward to the development of this app. Keep it up okay!
