Reicast is a Dreamcast emulator for Android that will run on phones, tablets and set-top devices such as the Ouya. Although its an Alpha it appears to run quite well on my 2 year old Galaxy Nexus phone. Sound works and games run at full speed with the ability to save.

The two games i have tried appear to have graphical glitches (Sonic Adventure 1 and 2), however from looking at the screenshots on Google Play that's not the case for all devices.

 

Well worth checking out if you liked the Dreamcast anyway!

I love my Dreamcast, and they are still releasing new games for it to this day. It's also great for running emulators so I can play my old Atari, NES, SNES, Genesis, etc. games on it. Definitely one of my favorite consoles ever. :)

I can't seem to get it to open on my Nexus 5. Gives me an error, about a SD card.
