How to Play Nintendo Games on Your iOS Device Without Jailbreaking

Up until now only iOS users who were lucky enough to nab emulators like Slider Puzzle or MAME could enjoy playing Nintendo games on their iPad or iPhone, but that has all changed thanks to a new website called webNES. The website allows iOS users to use their Dropbox account to upload NES ROMs to play on their mobile browser. The best part about the website is Apple can't shut it down like it does with emulators uploaded to the App Store.

Galaxy Patrol

WebNES works with both Safari and Chrome, and includes five pre-installed games: Croom, Tetramino, Galaxy Patrol, Fighter F-8000 and BoxBoy. It also features its own on-screen Nintendo controller with D-pad and A / B buttons, so all you will need is your own NES ROMs, and headphones if you want sound.
