The guys at Touch Arcade
are at it again -- this time, ZodTTD has ported temper
, a TurboGrafx-16
emulator, to the iPhone, and as you can see above, this means something amazing: Bonk
on the touchscreen. Sounds like the audio has a few little glitches, but seems like the controls and graphics are working as well as could be asked -- even in the slower Landscape mode (with the controls overlaid on the graphics), he says it was pulling about 50FPS.
There's even an emulator for the TurboGrafx-16 CD PC Engine
, as long as you do a little tweaking (and nab the bios from somewhere that may or may not be legal -- same for the ROMs). temper4iPhone
is still in beta, and just like all of these other emulators and jailbreak apps, we have no clue at all whether we'll ever get the chance to see them on the (rapidly approaching) App Store. Still, it's awesome to see -- we've definitely come a long way from the NES emulator
way back when.
