A lot of people would agree that playing a fan-made Sonic the Hedgehog game is nice but it often comes very short of the authentic thing. Since old-school consoles don’t grow on trees, having an alternative is good. That’s why Gens is here, a lightweight emulator for Sega games. Gens is designed to provide support for games that were released for SEGA Genesis, Mega-Drive, Sega-CD and Mega-CD/32X. Support for all of that is neatly packed in a small piece of software that can offer you a lot of hours of entertainment. The application displays a user-friendly interface that should be accessible to anyone who wants to try or relive a classic. Simplified, the entire process of running a game means loading the ROM file into the app, and that’s that. Games start automatically once they are loaded so your only real challenge will be to find a well-built game for the app to emulate.
