Emulators in JavaScript!

February 14th, 2010

I have in the recent past been made aware that it’s actually possible to create emulators in pure JavaScript. Along with the “new” canvas-tag, it turns out that the newest and fastest web browsers actually manages to emulate old game-consoles in an impressive manner. Some even with sound!

Here’s a list of some emulators created in JavaScript:

  • JSGB – Nintendo GameBoy emulator
  • JSNES – Ninetendo 8bit emulator
  • JSC64 – Commodore 64 emulator
  • JSSpeccy – Sinclair ZX Spectrum
  • jslinux – Linux
  • N64js – Nintendo 64

All the emulators requires a fast Javascript engine, like the ones in for example Apple Safari and Google Chrome and Firefox.
