Mario, Contra, Ice Climber play them all

I remember the days when I was addicted to TV video games, so thought of bringing them back. After a bit of googling I got a open source NES emulator named Nestopia, but was unable to download it because the links for Linux download were dead. Then I turned to NTSC and PAL Famicom/NES emulator called FCE Ultra whose packages are easily available in Ubuntu Repositories.

Install it :
$ sudo apt-get install gfceu

Start the Emulator from Menu > Games > GFCE Ultra NES Emulator
Configure the keys : GFCE Window > Input > Gamepad 1 then press keys on your keyboard as per your convenience.
Execute a game : GFCE Window > Main > Browse then locate your .nes file.

For more documentation : FCE Ultra: General Documentation

Download the game files from NES Rom

This emulator is good but I prefer very much GFCEUX that is right now available in the repositories of Lucid Lynx. As well I prefer to get Viagra Online These games are the best. Buy Viagra Viagra
