fMAME – It had to happen sooner or later :)

Over on they’ve released the first version of fMAME – a Flash port of MAME, the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. It doesn’t have any sound support yet, and in the debug Flash player is a little slow, but it’s still a damned fine piece of work! Several older games are supported (1943, Hyper Sports, Galaga, etc) but it’s great to see this classic emulator ported to AS3.

Click the screenie to play.

Press the 5 key to insert a coin, arrow keys = movement, A = fire button 1, S = fire button 2.

    This is a neat emulator, works very well here. I hope the author will add sound too. BTW great site that you got here!

    Wow, the best software ever made now runs in Flash.

    That’s just stunning.

    I’ve been wanting to do a Commando game for ages, but now you can just play the original in Flash. It’s really blown me away, nice find mate.

    Just checked and it appears to have been updated since I posted this! More games on the list now.

    Wow, Commando is hard… I lasted all of 10 seconds :)

    Check out for even more impressive Flash emulation.
    They have modern 16-bit games running at full speed, great shooters (check out Nostradamus especially) and high scores !!
