Name Description
higan higan began development as bsnes on October 14th, 2004. Originally created as a Super Nintendo emulator, the project grew to support additional emulators over time.

On August 9th, 2012, the project was renamed to higan to reflect its new multi-system purpose. It continues today as an open-source community project on GitHub.

The goal of higan is to provide uncompromising accuracy and self-documented source code, no matter the performance overhead. To provide the most complete emulation of the target hardware, no matter the complexity required. Every emulation core in higan is cycle-accurate, right down to the video renderers for each supported system. The emulation model is based around the unique approach of using cooperative-threading, rather than the traditional state-machine design found in other emulators.
OpenEmu OpenEmu is an open-source, multi-system emulator for macOS.
Phoenix Phoenix is a closed-source 3DO, Atari Jaguar, ColecoVision, Sega Master System and Game Gear emulator. The PC version of the emulator is currently only available in Russian, but an English patch is available (requires forum registration). The 3DO and Jaguar cores require a high-end PC or very high-end phone for full-speed emulation.
