For fans of the first generation of the PlayStation console we can only suggest FPse with a very low cost still compatible with rather dated smartphones or tablets that on the one hand manages the multiplayer for up to four players and on the other has no problems n with the rescues n with insertion of cheats codes.

PPSSPP – PSP emulator

The portable Playstation has been very successful because it has brought all the goodness of the Sony console to a portable size and PPSSPP goes to reproduce – or at least look for – the same experience even if a little more demanding than the other software in terms of power of the host device .

DosBox Turbo – Dos emulatorDosBox Turbo

Finally DosBox Turbo that can go play old games for desktop operating systems such as Windows 95 and Windows 98. In this case, if you could connect a keyboard via Bluetooth (which is supported) you would really go back in time of twenty years and more.

Two notes. The first that emulators are often happy to download malicious software, for this reason it is always better to download certified and safe programs. The second is that, by law, in theory you should only be able to download game Roma if you have the original version or if the rights to the game have expired – as on Abandonware – or if the copyright holders have given their authorization.

To find Roma there are countless portals and databases in Italian or English that can be easily found with a quick Google search. Again it is better to trust to bring them well known.
