Formerly know as PiMAME, PiPLAY comes as a prebuilt Operating System (OS) dedicated to gaming and emulation. While it may not be as up-to-date as other software such as RetroPie and RecalBox, PiPLAY still has a loyal fanbase and does a decent job of turning your Raspberry Pi into a Retro Games machine.

Systems emulated include:

  • MAME – AdvanceMAME & MAME4ALL
  • CPS I / CPS II – Final Burn Alpha
  • Neo Geo – GNGeo
  • Playstation – pcsx-reARMed
  • Genesis – DGen
  • SNES – SNES9x
  • NES – AdvMESS
  • Gameboy – Gearboy
  • Gameboy Advance – GPSP
  • ScummVM
  • Atari 2600 – Stella
  • Cavestory – NXEngine
