Android emulator fans, meet you new best friend. Yesterday the DraStic Nintendo DS emulator was published to the Play Store, for the admittedly high price of $7.99. It's not the first DS emulator for Android, but it's far and away the best - the combination of smooth performance (on sufficient hardware) and a stupefying amount of options to adapt the DS ergonomics makes it an easy recommendation.

Most of the existing DS emulators are based on code for Windows programs, making them unbearably slow on Android. This one is designed from the ground up to run on ARM, and requires at least a Cortex-A8 processor (with a few exceptions) and 256MB of RAM to run. I tried out DraStic on both the NVIDIA SHIELD and the Nexus 7 2013, and performance was at basically 100%, but devices with limited RAM and single-core processors will probably see noticeable drops.

To set up DraStic, you'll need to get the BIOS files for the Nintendo DS and drop them onto your device's root storage folder, SD card, or Download folder. Now, these files are copyrighted, and the only way to get them legally is off of your own NDS system via some expensive third-party hardware. There are other ways for Google Android users to get Nintendo DS BIOS files, but they aren't strictly legal. The game ROMs themselves are also a somewhat tricky legal subject, but it's generally agreed that you've got the right to emulate a commercially-sold game if you own an original copy. All the screenshots you see here are from games that I own.

Once you've got your files in place, start the app and select a game from the file browser. Here's the other part of DraStic that makes it fantastic: the options. As you may know, the dual-screen setup of the Nintendo DS is a tricky thing to work onto a single-screen interface. But DraStic offers no less than six different window modes for the two emulated screens. In the default view both sides are equally large and side by side, but there are options for big and little screens (nice for games that don't utilize one or the other very much), a stacked view, and single full-screen views. All of these can be swapped at any time with an assignable button. The portrait stacked screen layout is probably the best one for those with tablets or larger phones.

While playing the game, you have complete access to the DS's physical controls via virtual inputs, plus the lower touchscreen emulated in Android. A pop-up menu will let you activate stylus mode, making the virtual controls briefly disappear for more complete touchscreen control. The DraStic emulator also supports controllers. HID, Bluetooth, Xperia Play, Moga, NVIDIA SHIELD - whatever you've got, it can handle it. Mapping is quick and easy, and you can bind the screen-swap feature to any hardware control you like.

wm_Screenshot_2013-08-07-22-45-34

Dive deeper into the settings and you'll find all the standards of quality Android emulators: visual and audio settings, cheat code support, frame skipping, lots of variables for virtual controls and opacity. There's an FPS meter, an autosave function, and even cloud file saves that upload and download from Google Drive, for continuing your DS gaming session across multiple devices. Good grief, there are even options for the language, system name, birthday, and favorite color, recreating all the essential bits of the DS hardware menu.

wm_Screenshot_2013-08-07-22-45-49

I'm stupefied at how much patient, quality development has gone into the DraStic emulator. The only thing it's missing is multiplayer support, and considering the stellar performance elsewhere, that's an easy problem to overlook. If you've got decently powerful hardware and an urge to relive the DS glory days, grab your ROM files and eight bucks, then get playing.

Note: Drastic is incompatible with Tegra 2 devices (most first-gen Honeycomb tablets like the XOOM and Galaxy Tab 10.1, and quite a few 2011-era phones) and any device running an ARM11, Atom, or MIPS processor. Don't say we didn't warn you.

  • Robert Alex Kibler

    Holy crap. Any clue how well it works on either Galaxy Nexus or 2012 Nexus 7? If I can get a playable framerate, I'll definitely be buying this on payday

    • Ivan Myring

      Works great on my 2012 N7 (though I've only played pokemon platinum)

      • Robert Alex Kibler

        Thanks! Pokemon is the only thing I'm really interested in playing, so I'm glad to hear it. Does it have microphone support? I really want to play Lost in Blue again (my DS broke), but I know you need the mic for that.

        • Ivan Myring

          Sorry but I'm not sure about the mike

          • Robert Alex Kibler

            Okay, I'll just have to buy it and try it out. :) Thanks!

    • Mufasa

      Q: What are the minimum/recommended requirements to run DraStic?
      A: You need an Android device with the following specifications:
      CPU:
      An ARMv7a processor and NEON support. This includes any Cortex-A8,
      Cortex-A9 except for Tegra 2, Cortex-A15, Scorpion, or Krait processors.
      Tegra 2, ARM11, Intel Atom, and MIPS processors are not compatible.
      RAM: At least 256MB on the device. Ideally over 128MB free.
      Display: At least 320x480 is recommended
      OS: Android Gingerbread version 2.3.3 or higher

      should work fine on our Gnex :Q_

      • Robert Alex Kibler

        Those are the minimum specs though. He doesn't say what the framerate will be. I'll have to try it out when I get home from work.

        • Brandon Jiang

          i mean, if the minimum ram is 256 mb, which is basically the amount of ram in the first legacy android devices, i'd be surprised if a device with 4x that wouldn't run it well

          • Mufasa

            thats what im saying

    Lmao at the USA flag in language section.

    • squiddy20

      What, you seriously expected all 50 stars to be shown on what is probably a very very tiny area? You obviously knew it was meant to indicate the USA, therefore, the point got across despite the error.

      • http://skorch.co.uk/ Antony Derham

        Wow, you missed the point by a mile there. No, what I meant is what is the USA flag doing in a language section? That country uses many different European languages. The English flag would be the flag to use, if any at all. Flags are an extremely poor design choice for language menus.

        • Lidi

          But then anyone could say the same thing about games that use the English flag instead of the USA flag.

          All that matters is that you KNOW it means English and that's good enough but I can see where it would be better to do what most international games do by simply having the name of the language written natively in a list format.

          • jack

            No they couldn't - English comes from England. Not America, thus the British flag should be used.

            Spanish isn't represented by the Mexican flag, nor Portuguese by the Brazilian flag, nor German by the Austrian flag.

          • Poop

            Super cool argument you guys were having here. The US flag is used for American English, and the British flag is used for UK English. There are differences in spelling; some words are different as well. If the developers of the emulator speak American English, and don't intend to have UK English included in their software (and why would they? Brits can understand us fine) then it would be an error to put the British flag up when the text is not UK English.

    Nice! Too bad I'm' stuck on an incompatible Tegra2 device. Hopefully we will see a Dreamcast Emu as well.

  • http://surrenderat20.net/ frostyNinja

    This thing is just outstanding, I'm at a loss of words. I've been playing SoulSilver non-stop for like I don't know how long, I lost track of time. A very warm thank you to the developer!

  • josev

    first time I see hands-on review of emulator in AA.
    AA, are you sure this emulator is legal ?
    :)

    just want to make sure, for a peace of mind,
    if I buy this emulator & then it got takedown notice, will google remote-uninstall this app from my phone ?

    • http://surrenderat20.net/ frostyNinja

      It shouldn't get a C&D notice as it doesn't distribute any illegal contents such as the BIOS needed for it to run. The developer is also pretty smart not to delve into the multiplayer zone of things as Nintendo could probably easily blacklist his emulator and throw away hours of work for that functionality plus it'd be the easiest way to get a takedown notice. So for now he seems to be on safe ground.

      As for the latter part of your question, I'm not sure, maybe a more informed individual could answer that.

      • Josh Flowers

        No, Google will not remote-uninstall apps from your phone. I bought a tv-streaming app (tv portal) about a year ago. it was inviolation of the TermsOfService, somehow, so they were removed from the playstore but the app still functions (similar to other apps i've bought that have since been taken down from the playstore).
        Unless there's a new development in remote-uninstall by Google for such violations, you're good :)

        • Josh

          Didn't they remote uninstall apps flagged as malware a while back?

          • Josh Legoza

            They did indeed do that. Google's capable of it, but I don't believe they will remote uninstall apps just because the app violates the TOS (as long as the app isn't a threat to your security like the malware was).

    • NoUsernamesFree

      Less piracy, more supporting devs please.

      • noname

        The whole idea of this app is piracy...

        You can't really say to not pirate the app in this case of you're stealing games from actual game developers and stealing the files for a DS so you can be a cheap ass Android user and not have to buy video games or a DS.

        How about supporting game devs and Nintendo?

        Hell, the article even tells you how to pirate the DS files.

        • Jeremiah Rice

          Did you not read the part where I very clearly stated that I own both games on display here? I also own a Nintendo DS, so finding the BIOS files somewhere other than the actual hardware is, as far as I'm concerned, merely expediency.

          Stealing the screenshots I took for some crappy SEO blog (with the watermarks intact, no less) is just plain tacky. Thanks for encouraging all the negative stereotypes of Android users in general and emulation enthusiasts in particular.

          • noname

            The app's mere existence encourages the stereotype.

            I also noticed the bolded parts telling people what to Google for those BIOS files.

          • Funem

            Though I do the same, I believe its still illegal to download ROMS or have a digital copy of a ROM, even if you have an original copy of it, even if you have it for the oft quoted 24hours. Its the line Nintendo used to closedown as many flash cart companies as they could, though they missed shutting down the bigger better cart makers.

            Nintendo have it on their website : http://www.nintendo.com/corp/legal.jsp#download_rom

            Personally I think its OK to have a copy if you own it, but I don't make the laws (If I did there would be some great new ones)

          • Jeremiah Rice

            I'm sure Nintendo would like you to think that Section 117 of the Copyright Act (which isn't mentioned on the generalized text on the website, by the way) doesn't apply to their games. I'm sure Harper Collins would like you to believe that you have to pay for a separate copy of a textbook if you use it for more than one class. It doesn't make it true.

          • Funem

            Firstly the section you refer to would be for the archival use of a program or if it was needed in the recreation of a computer (IE re-installing your whole PC), which means it is used as a backup, what you are doing with an emulator is using the backup it, its no longer archival and therefore illegal. Secondly you can copy portions of text for use in a class, but you cant copy whole chapters/books that too is illegal.

            Though in both instances its hard to prove and varies from country to country, where it is legal to have a "copy" its not for general use. Nintendo is "ambiguous" in its wording but overall it is correct.
            Still, its a great emulator and I am having fun with it.

          • Guest

            As pointed out farther down, it's actually illegal to have "second copies" of your games you physically own

          I play Animal Crossing: Wild World on my Nexus 7 because I don't want to take the Animal Crossing: New Leaf game card out of my 3DS and put the Animal Crossing: Wild World version into my 3DS. Now. Would you like to explain the piracy there?

          • noname

            Simple.

            You're lazy.

          • SSJwiggy

            I don't want to be that guy, but it actually is illegal to have a ROM of games you own. It's a highly-debated subject. As Funem said, Nintendo's online policy says it's illegal to have a "second copy" of the game, whether or not you own the game. http://www.nintendo.com/corp/legal.jsp#download_rom

          • robert wilson

            fortunately, nintendo doesn't get to decide what is legal or illegal.

          • SSJwiggy

            Care to challenge them in court over that?

          • Seere Petrova

            Legal or not... who cares.. you cant do anything about it.. and nintendo cant do anything about it... hahahahahhahaha

          • Funem

            Not wholly correct, they do know what is legal and what isn't with regards to their intellectual property, they are also part of a group that affects how the law is created/amended in this area. Downloading a rom, if you have the game or not, is illegal, will Nintendo care if I do it, probably not. DS emulators have never really been that good and are not a threat as most people try them and go "Meh it plays like crap" and don't bother again, this emulator plays at 100% speed and is like the real thing (minus they physical controls) once Nintendo gets wind of this one they may decide get involved, should be interesting as the developer is treading really carefully.

          • robert wilson

            they might know, but they have a very good reason not to be honest about it. nintendo doesn't want people playing games on emulators, and claiming that it's illegal (even tho it isn't in most of the world) will stop a lot of people.

          • Primalxconvoy

            Except in Japan, where they made it illegal to even rent games. Japanese companies thrive on corruption and in Japan, such practices aren't illegal.

          • David

            So what if the download is ur "first copy" lol. Nah jk but what if u get a backup n the original is no longer usable?

          • Dan610

            Damnnnn that's lazy.

        • didibus

          Can you even get a DS anymore? Like where would I go to buy one, and how would I acquire the game from Nintendo?

        • Primalxconvoy

          Incorrect. Piracy refers to games on sale now. There are times when all related parties can't re-release an old game due to confusion relating to who owns the rights to a game. Thus, with games that are no longer on the market and who's rights are over or in contention, it isn't piracy to use them in an emulator.

          • Funem

            Piracy does not relate to games on sale now, it is still illegal to copy any games that have not entered into the public domain. All games from the arcade games of the 70's to the NES, SNES and megadrive are still covered by the same laws as those that are currently sold for the xbox360 and ps3 even though they are not available for sale now. If a games rights are in contention then it still has not entered into the public domain and cannot be released by anyone until its rights have been determined.

          • Primalxconvoy

            I've just checked and most of your points are valid. I would backtrack my previous statement somewhat but the general feeling according to the link that distributing abandonware isn't legal but isn't considered "illegal" (ie: worth taking legal action over).

            Here's the link:

            - http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abandonware

            The changes to American law do five some leeway for the upkeep of old software, though.

          • Funem

            Abandonware is a funny one, I always feel like there is someone sitting somewhere waiting and waiting for their game to become popular again or someone to create a version of it for another platform, when that happens they jump up and say hey hang on thats mine, you owe me loads of money now..

            To be honest as much as thew law states this and the law states that, as far as I am aware there has been no real big cases brought to court, in any country. I would guess that companies like Nintendo don't want that to happen either in case the court does not come down in their favor and create a precedence for cases that follow.

  • CaibreGreyblade

    This is awesome. Pricey but awesome.
    I'll buy it after they'll add working multiplayer. I hope it will be compatible with DS itself.

    • Amer Khaznadar

      Even if they do implement multi-player, and in the FAQ they say it's not currently planned, the chance of it being compatible with DS is as likely as Nintendo helping them do it. In other words, not at all likely.

      • atlouiedog

        You'll probably want something like a moga or gameklip for that dualshock if we're talking NDS games because of touchscreen controls.

      • Primalxconvoy

        Unless they want to use the phone and play while mobile. Balancing the phone on your lap and fishing or a controller from your bag isn't really an option for mobile gaming while gaming.

        Thus, until properly integrated hardware controls are easily available, mobile gaming isn't going anywhere.

        For some wierd reason I put them there . And for example in professor layton it says its curropted .And asks to delete the save file but for nds4droid same save file works

        • rubejb

          I actually had the same thing happen with my PL: Unwound Future save. Perhaps it ties the save to whatever "device" it first played on? I don't know. But all my other saves seem to have copied fine.

            Wow exactly that game . Must mean only that one . Thanks anyway man

  • ♠adeafmute♠

    After reading some of these comments I am absolutely awe stricken at the ignorance on display. To put it bluntly, how stupid do you have to be to think Nintendo's ToS overrides established federal law?

    • Funem

      Before you comment on how ignorant people are with regards to the statements on Nintendo's website, you should see If its Nintendo speak or law. It is in fact the law in most countries (Australia may be the exception, I haven't checked up on that for a while), You can have a backup of software or games, for use in the event that the original medium fails. Roms used in emulators are not being used in that manner therefore it is not a backup, therefore as stated on their website, they are illegal. They are right in what they say though very obtuse in the way they present the information

      • squiddy20

        "Roms used in emulators are not being used in that manner therefore it is not a backup, therefore as stated on their website, they are illegal." There's a problem with that argument: SOME people probably do use ROMs/emulators as intended, as a backup to the original physical medium. To make the blanket statement that, to paraphrase your words, all ROMs in emulators are not being used correctly, is overgeneralizing. Therefore, your argument has only half merit.

        Additionally, it's perfectly ok for me to take a CD I own, rip it to my hard drive/iPod/smartphone/MP3 player, and play it from there. Despite what Nintendo et. al. would have you believe, this is no different.

        • Funem

          I wasn't referring to people who use them as backups, I was (as this is the subject of this thread) referring to people who use the "backup" in an emulator. Having part owned and run a retro website, I have been on the receiving end of legal notifications which caused the closure of the website, so I follow this subject with interest. Backups are backups, using "backups" to play emulators stating you own a copy of the game is illegal as its no longer a backup. Firstly it is illegal to download someone else's copy of a ROM, even if its one you own as its illegal distribution, so technically you have to make your own "backup" for it to be legal. I have a device for doing this with NDS ROMs, this device is no classed as illegal as well as it circumvents the security measures in place to protect the games. CD and music is covered under a different law and does not work the same way as computer programs/games. These is a lot of confusion and mis-information (24 hour rule etc) about this and there are a number of grey and legally untested in a court of law areas, and it can vary from country to country though the underlying principals are the same

  • angel_spain

    Many people don't understand that many times the only way to play some games is using an emulator, because they aren't sold in your country (or they aren't on sale anymore). This happened many times with PSX and many JRPG games.

    Darn, just tried this and it literally blows other ds emulators for android out off the water.

          What does it say? Putting the .bin files on the Download folder of your Android Device should be enough. If you can be more specific I will try to help you.

    What FPS are you guys getting with Ace Attorney games? On nds4droid, I get 58-60 with my Nexus 7, and I wanna see how much the changes are before shelling out eight buckaroos.

    • TSON1

      Flat 60 FPS. NDS4Droid was great for its time, but may it rest in peace because audio and framespeed is flawless with this emu.

    The Dev has stated to me that they're looking into an ouya release but at the moment they're not sure how to give some of the content for free and which portions or features to restrict.

    Also, I'd really like an in-emu option to sign a button to switch from touch screen (stylus) controls to, say, the right analogue stick of a hardware controller. That way, games with obtrusive touch controls (like starfox and metroid prime) might be more playable.

    One thing I'd like to correct is that using roms is NOT Ok in some countries. I'm not sure but I think Nintendo and its industry cronies successfully bribed the Japanese government to make even modding a dvd player to ignore region locks a crime (with no "3 strikes" rule, either).

    So.. I bought it for my Htc Desire and its working pretty well. I tried Kirby - Canvas Curse, Kirby Mass Attack, New Super Mario Bros., Super Scribblenauts, Animal Crossing, They are all working 100% with filtering on. Only legend of zelda - Phantom Hourglass is working but bit slow not that slow about 90 % But still really good and playable. So yea... Its awesooome!!

  • Pixelorez

    Lol why is everyone talking abou how much they want for it? It like you have 100% working nds on phone so Its like you are buying nds and real nds costs bit more. So yea...

  • Drako

    How do i add roms? I can't figure this part out. please someone help.

  • Brett Besa

    I'm having some odd issues with this app. I downloaded the BIOS files and put them in the download folder. I'll play the game for a little while but it will eventually just stop at a point. Not freeze, just stop. No further actions can be taken in the game. I go to look in my file manager and all the bios files are gone. But when I plug it into my computer, it's still there. Any help?

  • Simon Belmont

    It makes sense that it doesn't support Tegra 2. No NEON support on Tegra 2, which I imagine this emulator needs.

    As for ARM11 (a.k.a. ARMv6), it's a no-brainer that it doesn't support that. ARMv6 is rather old at this point.

  • simar

    it say it requires the following bios files
    nds_bio_arm7.bin
    nds_bio_arm9.bin
    nds_frimware.bin

  • Miselem96

    does it works with 3ds games???

    • Bass

      Obviously not...

      • Nick Klenchik

        Actually it does, just not "3D"

        • http://acousticconfusion.tumblr.com/ Kwackers

          Are you implying that it runs 3DS games but in 2D or are you making a joke? Because you're unrightfully getting my hopes up man and that's not cool!

          No but seriously please tell me I'm not smart.

    • Yeah…

      No the 3ds wont be emulatable for quite some time because of special hardware. Same with the 2ds
