Nesoid Android App Review


The Nesoid Android app is a Nintendo Emulator for the NES console.  This allows you to play hundreds of games that were created for that gaming system.  Although the first Nintendo Entertainment System Console is a bit outdated and the graphics seem primitive, the games that were created for it are some of the best out there.  You can play classics like Donkey Kong, Super Mario Brothers, Metroid, and Zelda all from the comfort of your mobile phone.

The Android has a reputation of not having that many gaming apps available to users, so this is a great way to really bulk up your library without having to search all over for other good games.  The iPhone definitely has the gaming market right now but Android devices are working to get more of a handle of the market.  This is a good app to give you fun games to play in the meantime.

One thing you should know about this app is that it provides the NES emulator it does not provide the games.  You will have to download the games from some other source and put them on your SD card.  An easy way to do that is to just go to Google and search for Nintendo Roms and you can find a lot of games to download.  This app boasts to work with about 90% of the roms you will download and not have any problems.  You want to be careful, however, that you don’t infringe on any copyrights when downloading these Roms.

Also, this Android app works best if you have an Android Device that has a keyboard or trackball.  Most of these games require you to press a couple of different buttons in order to excel, and the touchscreen isn’t really the best way to go about it.  If you have a device that has a keyboard then stop waiting around and download the Nesoid Android app today!



  • Ability to play over 90% of downloaded roms that you will find on the internet
  • Play classics like Super Mario Brothers and Zelda right on your phone
  • Needs a keyboard or trackball to be compatible with your device


If you love the old classic Nintendo games then you will love this emulator app.  It has some of the greatest games to have ever been created and brings them to your mobile phone.  One thing to note on these games, however, is that they work best if you have a keyboard version of the Android.  Some of the games are hard to control using only the touchscreen.  Other than that, this is a gaming app that you just shouldn’t pass up.

Voted 3.7 out of 5 stars by Android app users and currently costs $2.99 to download.
