What emulators are available?

Is there any way to play like DS games or game cube or wii or Playstation games on an iPod 5 that isn't jail broken?
I've been using the GBA4iOS and it works great so I wonder if there are other ways to play other systems games. Thanks!

I did happen to have a DS emulator for awhile, but it was extremely laggy, even on my cousin's iPod Touch 5... I have not found any of the others you asked for.

I tried a no-jailbreak DS emulator and the controls were a nightmare. Because of the two screens, you could either have buttons overlaid on the top screen (awkward) or bottom screen (which is also a touchscreen). Unless you have a controller it's just not worth it.

Tried that DS Emulator on my iPod 5th and yes it was laggy. But games are still playable. End up deleting it

The guy who created gba4ios also created a NDS emulator, but it only works on iOS 6.

Yeah, that would be great! If he does, I hope that it isn't laggy and that the controls actually work

I have nds4ios for my 5S and it works great for me. It may lag here and there but it's not too bad
