Third party rom sites often contain roms that are illegal to download, so it’s worth checking their terms and conditions if you choose to download a rom from such sites – or you can just download roms from this page if you are uncertain about the law. These rom sites usually list classics like Super Mario Bros, Contra, Tetris, The Legend of Zelda, Castlevania, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Mega Man, etc – but these are likely to be illegal to download, so we recommend sticking to the homebrew roms on this page.


We accept no responsibility for any consumer downloading illegal roms from third party websites. Not every rom is illegal, and for those looking for free roms, we would encourage the use of homebrew roms, and ask consumers to obey the law and respect the intellectual property of others.


Downloading the roms listed on this page is not illegal. The download links to roms are external links pointing to other websites – you are not actually downloading any rom from our own website unless stated otherwise. We ask anyone to please notify us if any broken links are found, as external sites may change and we have no control over them.


If you own the copyright to a rom and want us to list it on this page, or if you are the copyright holder to any of the roms listed and want any rom removed, feel free to contact us.
