MAME4ios icon





MAME4ios is a multiple arcade machine emulator for iOS. Relive some classic arcade games with this beautifully designed emulator sporting some truly amazing graphical controls that mimic the original style of arcade machines. You are able to play games supported by the original MAME 0.139u1 in any orientation.

MAME4iOS includes many different features such as full universal support for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, updated for 4" display, full screen or windows support, fully animated joystick controls, autorotation and much more.

What's working: Most "supported" MAME4ALL games. Framerate for games tested so far is smooth. Audio works but is not perfect. Graphics work for all tested games but some games do not display properly (scaling to fit screen dimensions). iCade and MFi controllers. AppleTV running tvOS.

    How to add ROMs

  • Step 1. Downloaded iExplorer (or a similar utility) and plug your iOS device into your computer.
  • Step 2. Launch iExplorer and select your iOS device on the left-hand side. This should reveal an Apps icon. Click it.
  • Step 3. Now you should see a list of all of your device’s applications. Locate iMAME, click it, and select Documents.
  • Step 4. And that’s all there is to it. Move your ROMs into this folder, launch iMAME, and start playing!
