Emulation on IPad

If you want to use emulation on IPad for old arcade rooms,SNES rooms and more you're going to need to find a good emulator for IOS. Those of you on the know will have heard of MAME which basically acts as an emu for all IOS devices. When the emulator slipped through the net a while back it wasn't long before Apple, who doesn't like this type of thing, soon pulled it from the AppStore. Well guess what MAME has resurfaced in an altered but essentially the same form.

How to use emus on IPad

The Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) is back on the App Store as bundled content in 
retro arcade shooter Gridlee, designed to run on arcade cabinets back in the '80s.

The Gridlee ROM has been released by  the game's developer Videa (it never made it to the arcades) 

If you've got a ROM, you're going to need an emulator to run it. Enter the MAME4iOS Reloaded project, Seleuco's iPhone- and iPad-friendly emulator, which just so happens to come bundled with the Gridlee app.

Naturally, as soon as gamers caught wind of the Gridlee's not-so-secret bonus content, they set about trying to use the MAME4iOS software to get other ROMs to run on their iOS devices.

Sure enough, within hours of Gridlee's launch Touch Arcade forummembers had located the folder housing the ROM and were reporting back with news of their retro game-loading successes.
