Rich Dawe's Emulators Page


They say games aren't the same as they used to be - no playability, etc. So, bring those games out of retirement by using an emulator. Emulators exist for practically every home computer that has existed. Now one can even get arcade machine emulators. The ones listed below run on PCs. I've only used the BBC and Spectrum emulators (BBC for the, er, BBC, and Z80 and Warajevo for the Spectrum), although I would like to try an Amiga emulator.

Arcade Machines

The only problem with these is that it's illegal to use pretty much any of the game ROMs, unless you actually own one of the machines. In this case, I'd guess it'd be pretty pointless to want to emulate one. Arcade emulators seem to be growing in popularity, and they have nice Web pages, so take a look anyway.
