Snes9x is a portable, freeware Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) emulator. The application can allow you to play most games that were designed for the SNES and Super Famicom Nintendo game systems on your PC. If you are unaware, SNES was a 16-bit video game console which sold 50 million units globally and was immense fun to play games on!
Snes9x is great for fans of the original SNES, who can now re-live their past gaming victories. Snes9x has been coded in C++, with three assembler CPU emulation cores on the i386 Linux and Windows ports.
Overall, Snes9x has lots of configurable options. You can change the sound, play in full screen and alter the game input devices such as SNES Mouse and SNES Joypad. The application also has Action Replay support for cheats and the ability to search for new cheats online. The graphics are emulated in a crisp manner and the overall feel of the emulator is good.
In order to play SNES games, which were available on ROM cartridge, you will need ROMs or ROM images. Please note: The Snes9x application does not provide games files.
