MAME4Droid allows Android gamers to carry a complete arcade around with them. The quality of the emulation varies per game but on the whole it is excellent, especially with graphics and sounds set to lower settings.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for MAME4droid to support 'save states' as the app is based on a MAME version that does not support that particular feature. Nevertheless, this is a highly recommended app.
