Extensive development in the iOS ecosystem has made playing those vintage games on iOS devices possible. As a result, many iOS emulators have been introduced including GBA4iOS, NDS4iOS, Provenance and more. But NewGamepad distinguishes from such emulators in multiple ways.
We have different emulators for playing specific console games. And, it’s quite fun too. But what about playing all major console games over a single emulator? That is the part where almost 80% of the iOS emulators of this planet lack such multi-console support.
Similar to Provenance iOS, NewGamepad is widely popular because of its multi-platform support. Just forget the manual download of a variety of games’ ROMs as this latest emulator has a huge collection of in-built games.
Isn’t it exciting? On top of that, this streamlined powerful emulator does not require your iOS device to be jailbroken. All it takes is to put your effort into choosing the game of your choice from right inside the emulator app and start your gameplay.
