  1. Requirements :

    First, lets list the necessary tools to play games on our phones :
    • Nds4Droid : First, we need to install the emulator on our android devices, here is the link of the app on android app store : Nds4Droid.
    • Any Emulator BIOS : Nope, not this time, while trying this emulator, the app didn’t ask for a BIOS file, may be it has it’s own .
    • Any Emulator Game : the last thing to do is getting the games, well the proper name is ROMS. How to get them?? we will need to install Any Emulator Game that will help us find them, here is the link for the app Any Emulator Game . Here is also a small quick tutorial that will show how to use it Getting Roms with Any Emulator Game.

Time out Once you got the games (ROM File) make sure  it’s isn’t an archive file (archive file name ends with .7Z or .RAR or .ZIP), if that’s the case, you need to extract the ROM file first, here is a small tutorial about extracting ROM files How to extract ROM files
  1. running the games :
