Emulators tested

Demul (DirectX 10) – Game plays very well, with just some very minor audio glitches. This game uses hand-drawn sprites rather than polygons and may appear excessively blocky when upscaled by the emulator.

This game requires a high level of player skill and reaction time, using an arcade stick or accurate digital d-pad is recommended. The game may be harder on the emulator since there is likely to be additional input lag.

Demul (DirectX 11) – Not tested.

Makaron T12.7 – Not tested.
