Free retro arcade game emulator

1964 is free popular software that was created for Windows. It’s written in both C+ and C++ programming languages and made to emulate Nintendo games on computers running on Microsoft's Windows OS. It was one of the first emulators available to download online and helped introduce emulation to enthusiasts. It let them play their favourite games on their desktops rather than consoles.

1964 lets players run old games on modern machines without relying on game consoles. The emulator also helps enhance digital graphics compared to those in the original game. It also cuts down on lag. It’s easy to install and provides gamers with additional user-friendly configurations to change controller settings, graphics configurations and audio plug-ins. RetroArch is also an open-source, free emulator, which is similar to 1964.


This software doesn’t need BIOS, making it highly compatible. It also allows multiplayer and changes aspect ratio without compromising on quality and the gaming experience.


Doesn’t require driver installation

This software requires no additional driver installation on your desktop, which means it can be run off a portable device such as a USB stick or even a CD/DVD if preferred.  It’s also swift to load and easy to exit.

Easy to use

1964 has a basic, easy-to-use interface that allows a hassle-free gaming experience without configuration. However, if needed, you can also get multiple formats.

Additional features

The software provides support for up to four controllers. Video settings are also available, along with audio options, which the user can configure. This can be confusing to some players, so it helps to familiarise yourself before you try it. The software has control configurations that are compatible with almost every brand controller available.

Retro arcade action

Overall, 1964 is a great emulator, as it’s compatible with almost all controllers and doesn’t need BIOS. It also offers good speed and multiple configuration options to enjoy your gaming experience with others as well. 

This is one of the best products out there when it comes to a good emulator.
