ANDROID TV BOX RETRO GAMING
So, you have your new Android TV Box or if you are thinking of getting one.
You are looking at all of the features that your Android TV Box can do. One lesser known feature is Android TV Box Retro Gaming.
Yes you can can play current games via the Google Play store staright to your TV which is another great feature of an Android TV Box but via the help of an emulator you can download and roms you can download. You can turn your Android TV Box into a retro haven for Sega and Nintendo.
If you long to play the classics like Mario or Sonic again, as the newer ones just don’t cut it, then this is perfect for you. The Roms you download are all the original games, most have on screen instructions so picking it up is a breeze.
We have collated links for a selection of Roms for you on our downloads page. Simply click the link below.
So What is a Rom?
A ROM is essentially the game itself. It stands for Read-Only Memory, but it has come to indicate the file used for playing a game. Only download those which you own a physical copy of. We don’t endorse any ROM downloading, and you take matters into your own hands when doing this.
When searching for ROMs, be sure that no websites try to download anything other than .apk file (on Android). All ROMs should be .zip files, and you shouldn’t need to unzip them, just select the zipped folder with the emulator. File types such as .exe or .apk or programs that run on your PC or Android device and can be harmful.
Older games will likely be smaller in size, newer games will be larger.
Playing these games can be frustrating on a standard Android TV Box remote. That’s why we have the iPega Bluetooth Gamepad. This gamepad is absolutely perfect for playing games and controlling your TV Box.
