Ever thought about playing your favourite good old arcade games on Nokia 9300i?
I did ! It took me a while until I can play my favourite games from my youth,
however I was lucky to make it work.
1. In order to play the Sega games I have to use a Picodrive (a sega mega drive emulatorwho was originally written for Risc OS) and then was ported for our shiny mobile phones.The port that worked on my Nokia 9300i was picodrives80s90_0_5_latest_04-06-2006.sis
I have to admit it was a real pain in the ass to find the working version of Picodrive for the
Nokia 9300i mobile. So I hope you’ll be more happy than me simply following the picodrive
download location provided in the download link above.

2. After having the properly installed version of picodrive on your Nokia.
create a folder (preferably) on your memory card. Assure yourself the new created folder
is called pdgames.
3. Download some Sega Genesis roms from orany other large Sega Genesis rom archive on the Internet.
4. Top 50 WORKING (recommended to playgames) for the picodrive emulator are as follows:
(N.B.! Originally the list of games was taken from allaboutsymbian’s website forums 1. Altered Beast2. California Games3. Cannon Fodder4. Columns5. Coolspot6. Dr Robotniks Mean Bean Machine7.

Even though the list conatins plenty of wonderful sega games. Not all the games forementioned
were suitable for my personal liking.
Thus I’ve selected a custom list of games which I like more:
The roms I’ve installed on my Nokia 9300i, I’ve bundled in a small archive that can be downloaded
