Hi team, I've got an Nvidia Shield. I want to download and play a game called Xevious, it's a retro arcade game from 1982 (I think). Can someone please tell me if this is possible and how to download it. Thanks in advance for any replies.  I assume I can use gamestream??. I own a MacBook.

Not sure if the Shield supports it in any way, but you'd need MAME or similar running, and a legal copy of the game ROM.  Google will help you further :)

Yep - have installed MAME4droid and loaded a truckload of ROMs - most of which work.


You will also need a gamepad- I have the Nvidia Shield one - not sure if other generic ones will work.


I don't have time right now to check if I have Xevious and if so if it is working - but will do so later and come back to you.
