If at the time we already made our recommendation with the best Super Nintendo emulators for Android, with the recent announcement of the existence of Mega Drive Mini it is the turn to do the same with the 16 bits of SEGA. Although the company has been concerned with launching many of its classic titles on the platform, the truth is that there are many alternatives to run the majority of the catalog on our smartphones and tablets.

We start with the jewel in the crown. RetroArch is a multiplatform emulator that includes a host of independent cores for all types of classic consoles. In fact, to emulate Mega Drive there is more than one emulator among which stands out the module of Genesis Plus DX, which does not exist outside of RetroArch / Libretto and that surely is the best of all those that we will mention in this article.

At configuration level, the emulator unifies the options to be used in all the consoles, allowing to adjust details such as vertical synchronization, aspect correction, possible additional post-processed filters or the refresh rate among other parameters. But what really matters is the speed of the emulation and response speed, whose results are almost perfect. If we add the fact of being able to record the game, which swallows almost all ROM formats (even if they are compressed) and also supports 32x Mega-CD, Master System, and Game Gear, there are few excuses not to try it.


If what we are looking for is a lighter emulator that does not include such baroque menus, surely the best option is AndroGens. Based on the code of the aforementioned Genesis Plus DX and DroidGen (both with GPL license), the only drawback is that it integrates advertising in their menus, although during the execution of the games themselves do not appear. Beyond this, we have a more than correct emulation and very high compatibility with almost the entire catalog. In addition, we appreciate the existence of the options bar superimposed on the game to avoid having to leave it when we want to record the game or load another ROM. Comfort is what is most sought after.

Other ways to enjoy Mega Drive on Android

As we have often mentioned here, SEGA has been launching titles of its classic consoles for Android for several months within the SEGA Forever initiative, which for practical purposes are nothing more than the ROMs of the original titles packaged with an own emulator. These are all those that have been released so far, where you can find jewelry like Golden Ax, Altered Beast, the first Sonic or Ristar among many others.
