    Wiimote-Controlled SNES Emulator on iPad

    Wiimote-Controlled SNES Emulator on iPad


    What could possibly be better than playing the SNES classic, Super Mario Kart? Playing it on your iPad, of course. Or Super Mario World. Or pretty much any of Nintendoís amazing games for the Best Console Everô. This is possible already with a jailbroken device, or even a stock iPad, should you be a developer who can sign his own software and install it.

    But the problem with all games on the iDevices, be they official App Store games or pirated ROMs running in hacked emulators is that they are controlled via the touch screen. This works surprisingly well, but is never going to be as good as using a proper joypad, especially on fast-moving, button-mashing titles.

    Enter the newest iteration of snes4iphone, the $6 SNES emulator from our good friend ZodTTD. The app now works with a Wiimote, wirelessly, so you can control Mario as God (aka Shigeru Miyamoto) intended: with lots of plastic buttons.

    Maybe itís my age, or my inability to play any game made after the year 2000, but I have a crazy soft-spot for the SNES, and this new hack my be enough to get me a-jail-breakiní. Of course, what we really need is an official SNES emulator, but that wonít happen until right after Apple lets Adobe put Flash on the iPhone.

    I tried NES & SNES emulators on my iPhone... Works perfect, but itīs a little messy playing with your fingers all over the screen

    Seems like a good idea as it acts as a portable screen but CC implementation seems like it would make it easier to play and far more enjoyable.
