    Runs smooth...when it runs. Freezes all the time and crashes a lot too

    Interface not as polished as vNES. Does not load Sid Meier's Pirates. I doubt any of these nes emus on WP don't use or refactor open-source code so I don't understand the fee.

    Almost perfectly smooth on my phone and nice full screen. Wish it had a coolrom link like purple cherry, but SkyDrive is easy enough.

    Good emulator, PLEASE read the "about" section before using it if you're new to emulation on WP. You NEED to unzip your files for any ROM to work with this emulator. To the person that said that people that can't get it to work are idiots, keep it to yourself. Some people that bought this app are converts from Android [which has VERY simple drag and drop emulation, no unzipping or uploading/downloading via cloud storage requirements] to WP, [which is exactly why I'm not giving it 5 stars]. The Rate & Review section is not a platform to degrade someone's intellect because they don't post enough stars or don't understand a function. Clean up your attitude and get your facts straight before you talk ****.

    Don't know why everyone else is having problems. I think those idiots expect to open this app and play Mario automatically. Upload to Skydrive then download to your phone..simple! This emulator is the best one for NES on Windows Phone. Thanks!

    Doesn't work... Or deserve a whole star. Glad I did the trial version first :)
