RetroArch app review

Think of this app as a cross-platform gaming app that is completely free of charge. With this app, you can play console games easily on your mobile devices or any PCs. The app can do more than that. It allows you to play Nintendo Switch games on your PlayStation or Xbox One games on your Switch. Basically, you have the greater freedom to play any game you want regardless the type and the platform.

Video Scaling Options

This feature is quite precise, which adds the convenience during your favorite gaming time. You should have no issue adjusting the image to the resolution and dimensions of your device. It’s even possible for you to apply the (bezel) overlays so you can customize the screen’s layout.

Do you have certain preferences for your image scaling? No worries; this app has everything you have. It means that you can tweak the setting, like stretching the image or having the perfect pixel dimension or accuracy, super easily.

Expansive System Support

Not only you can find the app on many different systems, but you can also expect the app to emulate various systems. This is one of the features that most users like because it’s responsible for the great versatility.

In-game Saves

Can you save the game? Of course you can! The app supports in-game saves, just like the one you can find on the original platform. What’s cool is that you can utilize the save states to take the game’s snapshot. Any game you want.

Rewind and Fast Forward Support

Unlike other apps, this one supports fast forward and rewind ability. In fact, the app has a pretty unique and cool universal support that can help you during some gaming performances. There are certain times where you need to navigate your game slowly. Thanks to this feature, you are able to do it without any issue.

The Pros and Cons

The things to love about the app are:

  • The app is available for (and also compatible with) different operating systems. Not only you can find the emulator for Android, but you can also find one for Windows (or PC).
  • Making adjustment is easy. Tweaking the setting would be a breeze.

The only downside is the fact that the set up process takes a while. It’s true that this app is super handy and fun when set, but the process to reach that stage is bumpy and complicated. Keep in mind that this app is actually meant for advanced users who want to tweak with the settings. It means that they understand the codes and stuff, and they really know what they are doing. It’s not ideal for beginner gamers who just want to play games.

The app is definitely super handy and versatile if you want to play tons of different games in such an ease or freedom. With various helpful features, it’s hard not to like it. Do you think RetroArch for Android is for you? It’s highly possible.
