    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]. Clean up your attitude and get your facts straight before you talk ****.

    Glad I tried and did not buy on blind faith and good reviews. Does not see any folders in my Skydrive nor a local .nes file I copied to my SD Card from Skydrive. In this state, it does not play any games.

    Works well. Not being able to run games off directly off sdcard is a deal breaker. Nestalgia is the way to go if you want to do that.
