I have been very reluctant to share about this, since the topic itself – emulators, to be exact game console emulators – are considered grey area to many. One way, people who use the emulators are happy, while the consoles and game manufacturers and makers are not happy their intellectual properties are being used/abused for free. Recent breakdown was coming from Nintendo, just a few weeks back only. Nintendo was asking LoveROMs and Emuparadise to stop sharing any consoles ROMs hosted on the sites, not just Nintendo own ROMs. Read here the details.
But finally today I made up my mind and would like to let the world know the best consoles emulator for Android.
It’s called Happy Chick. Seriously.
The name is Happy Chick. Probably you laugh, but yes, I’m being serious here.
For most of you, probably this is the first time you hear about it. If you have been in the emulator world for some time, especially for Android, you might have heard about PPSSPP, DraStic, ePSXe, SNES9X, Gensoid, MAME, and many more big known names – since most of them are porting from their PC counterparts. I have been using a few of them as well, until I found and knew about Happy Chick.
I can’t blame you for not knowing Happy Chick, since Happy Chick itself is not really emulator, it’s more like a game console emulators aggregator. And by saying aggregator, I mean it. Like RSS feed aggregator, aggregating all news feeds in one place, Happy Chick does the same thing but for console and arcade games.
Why Happy Chick?
I have been using Happy Chick myself for quite sometime, and I can’t be more happy than this. These are why you should consider Happy Chick.
- It’s a game consoles aggregator, everything is in one place.
- One single install, Happy Chick will take care the rest of game consoles emulators installation.

- No need to find BIOS for those supported emulators
- Can search for game ROMs easily
- Totally FREE!
