App description: Kick it old school with home-brew games written for the original Nintendo Entertainment System. Nescaline allows you to play public domain NES games, five of which are included, or use Nescaline's download feature to add games to your library from any remote URL.

Features:
- Multitouch support; use the directional pad and A+B or many other combinations together.
- Works with many zapper-enabled games. Simply touch the screen where you want to shoot.
- Save-state allows you to save games in progress and later restore them to the state they were in when you left the game.
- Supports both landscape and portrait mode, in both full screen or original resolution
- Enter Game Genie codes to enable cheats for your favorite games.
- Alternate frame skip, palette, and advanced settings.

Nescaline works well with many freely available home-brew and public domain games, but is not guaranteed to work with all of them. Author does not condone the piracy of commercial games.

For optimal performance, an iPhone 3Gs is recommended, but not required.

NOTE: Nescaline is in no way affiliated with Nintendo of America or its affiliates. Nescaline does not contain any intellectual property or copyrighted material owned by Nintendo of America or its affiliates.

Do not ask for ROMs in this thread!

Is this for real? If so, we must be quick before it being pulled out...

this, from the description doesnt even have the old games, it has mostly homebrew games... that kind of dampens the excitement

It says in the description it is for playing Home-brew games only. Public domain stuff. This will not play Mario or any other commercial games...at least that's what I understood from the description.

Perhaps there is a way to download other types of titles?

They MIGHT be good, but the thing is... they arent the original library... and most homebrew games, while more original and out of the box, arent very deep. Id miss all the old RPG and adventure games i played on the NES

The developer's twitter says it can run commercial games, but I'm gonna hold off for now. That's a lot of money for an untested emulator. The C64 emulator includes a legitimate pack-in library and is 2 dollars cheaper. I dunno about this one.
