  • Controller Skins: Comes with well-crafted portrait and landscape controllers, and you can create your own controller skins.
  • Game Cover Artwork: Quickly set game cover artwork for your titles.

The Delta emulator took the App Store by storm and now the Gamma emulator has also appeared on the App Store. It is a PlayStation 1 emulator, and while it hasn’t garnered as much attention as Delta, it’s still available to download on your iPhone or iPad.

Of course, with emulators now allowed on the iOS App Store, downloading them is as simple as possible. You’ll need to open the App Store on your iPhone or iPad and search for “Gamma“. This app is completely free, like most legal emulators.
