  • Apple Approves then Disapproves new NES Emulator 'Nescaline' App


    UPDATE: It appears that this app has been pulled from the AppStore.
    Only a few moments after I posted this, the app is now gone from existence. It's pretty obvious as to why this probably happened, but nonetheless, thats the way it goes. It just makes one wonder what is really going on for the approval process...


    Once again we are seeing Apple approve Apps that we would have never thought possible. Either they are really listening to the developers to cut some slack, or they are all drunk out of their minds, drinking Egg Nog and sipping Cocoa, with the AppStore on autopilot. Either way, I won't complain, although

    Nescaline was unleashed upon the App Store today by Jonathan Zdziarski. Nescaline comes with some free games, however as usual, you'll have to add your own roms. However, this is not as easy as just SSH'ing them in. Obviously those that don't have Jailbroken phones can't do so. But the App does have the ability to point to a URL containing a ROM and download it to your device to play as you please.

    I could go on to explain the controls, layout and gameplay, but nothing is really different than the version we have available to us in Cydia. So here are some details and some screenies

    Note: I only found this in the US Store

      well... I am surprised it even made it on the app store if ever so briefly. Something like that would encourage people to download roms illegally and I know apple doesn't want to have a hand in supporting that.

      They were probably drunk. But, don't forget, Nintendo probably asked Apple to remove the app. First of all, it is illegal to sell an emulator that contains commercial ROMs.

      you are right, but i bought the factory unlocked iphone at the first place so that i don't have to jailbreak my iphone, people who doesn't jailbreak or don't like to jailbreak does not mean they don't know anything... anyways thanks for the tip but i will wait for it..

      He didn't steal it from anyone. Jonathan Zdziarski is the developer of Nes3 on Cydia. He ported that to app store and called it Nescaline. Obviously he made some changes to make it more apple friendly (although it didn't last long) but they are basically the same thing.

      Well, warez is technically the distribution of paid applications for free, since this application technically does not exist anymore distributing it technically isnt warez

      But someone did post a rom, which can technically be shared copyright material.

      we do not allow discussion or linking of anything cracked/pirated/warez on this forum. Do not speak or link about anything on that subject, period.

      what many people do not understand, is that having an emulator is not illegal; having any type of ROM registered by a company IS. Regardless of if you own the game at home, or you ported it yourself, or you even bought the rom online. It's just plain and simple, illegal. Because Nintendo has had the biggest issues with the emulators, they have even put up their own dedicated page discussing the violations you would be making by downloading / porting / etc any of these.

      | Nintendo - Corporate Information | Legal Information (Copyrights, Emulators, ROMs, etc.)
      [read up]

      Essentially, it is almost exactly the same as downloading a paid iphone app for free.
