I was getting RSI from mashing circle for hours

Or try Retroarch free.

If you can side load, Happy Chick is an all in one solution for loads of systems often found on Chinese handhelds, you can find it via googling.

MD.emu should be a safe bet if you don't mind paying, Robert Broglia's emulators are usually pretty solid and easy to use.
Ended up going with Genplus and using the Save State option to give me something to screenshot. Have got Retroarch already but find it has a pretty ugly in game UI, assuming there's ways to alter this but now sure how exactly.
Retro arch is fully configurable
Android version?

If its just the hud it can be fiddled with, remember playing changing it from the SNES one to the Megadrive one

Trying to master 200cc in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Even using the art of brake-drifting, it's still crazy. Still, I have won a fair few offline races due to the sheer amount of carnage that can happen on the last few corners (going from 7th or 8th to 1st is a frequent possibility). Getting a triple-star ranking on all of the cups is going to take some doing. Managed 2 so far.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

In MK8 its best to not be first all the race as the CPU AI is annoying and will spam items, kinda why I dont really like it as its more luck of items rather than skill winning races

Playing through Gunstar Future Heroes(GBA) at the moment. Great little run n' gun and looks fantastic; another 'Treasure' game that everyone should check out. I've nearly finished It, so I have a few cheeky e-bay gets arriving soon:

Ape escape(PS1)
Wild 9(PS1)
Soul Reaver(PS1)
R-Type Delta(PS1)
Omega Boost(PS1)

Should keep me busy, at least until we're all back at work or everyone's dead.

Getting further into The Witcher 3 now, really enjoying it, mostly due to the great storytelling and world building.

Decided to stick my recent e-bay gets on the back burner and finally get stuck into 'Alundra' on the PSone instead. I really should have played this sooner - its incredible! I'm around 10 hours in and completely hooked. I've pretty much stopped playing everything else for the time being :)

Ace Attorney on Switch - got a voucher and decided to try it, and I love it! It's not the hardest game, but the stories and characters are charming, and the actual gameplay is something I enjoy from adventure games.

Trauma Center on Wii - now I've arranged everything in my gaming room properly I can now play with motion controls

Rock Band - after a few beers, ebayed some PS3 guitar and games. I'm a frustrated bass player, but it turns out I'm an even more frustrated singer. Now the neighbours know what my Ozzy Osbourne impression sounds like!

Played Super Mario Land I on the Gameboy, well via an emulator. Finished the game, been a while since i did that. Final end of level baddie wasnt too bad, harder than some of the previous ones as they were so easy.

Still an amazing game

Diablo 3 on Switch still has me hooked, perfect time killer game, such a great and addictive core loop. Going back to this game has done a good job of getting me hyped for Diablo 4 all over again

Managed to get the time to knockout the treasure seelie event for Genshin Impact, for the cute little pet. Though it seems right now I’ve progressed to the point where my characters are seriously underlevelled besides Klee and maybe Jean. Not looking forward to the ensuing grind but oh well
