OpenEmu, the ultimate old-school game emulator for OS X, just got even better. A beefy update brings an improved user interface, real-time game rewinding and — best of all! — support for an additional 16 game consoles, including the Nintendo 64, PlayStation 1 and PlayStation Portable.
OpenEmu 2.0.1 features a redesigned UI, making the experience look a little more in keeping with OS X El Capitan’s aesthetic. It also allows you to rewind games while you’re playing them, which is useful for when you miss that long jump in Super Mario Bros. and don’t have a save state or a 1-up handy.
But the biggest improvement is emulated game support. Here are the new systems in OpenEmu 2.0.1:
- Atari 5200
- Atari 7800
- Atari Lynx
- Famicom Disk System
- Nintendo 64
- Sega CD
- Sony PSP
- Sony PlayStation 1
It’s true that many of these consoles were playable in past versions of OpenEmu if you opted for the work-in-progress version, but the support was experimental at best. OpenEmu 2.0.1 promises much more robust emulation support for the consoles above.
Never tried OpenEmu? Released two years ago, it’s without a doubt the best way to play classic video games on the Mac. Check out Cult of Mac’s guide to setting up OpenEmu for details on how to get started.
