Have you ever gone to the app store to get a Super Nintendo Game, but you can't find one to play. Well now you can play these nintendo games with the snes emulator from cydia. This emulator allows you to play Nintendo games on your idevice, even with a Wiimote! This is a very detailed simple step-by-step tutorial which will show you pictures for every step to visually explain what to do. This is also 100% free if you already have all the materials needed.

I was inspired to make this because...

- I always wanted to play Nintendo on my iPad. 
- I wanted to teach people about playing on the iPad with a Wiimote.
- I wanted to play Nintendo on a bigger screen when on the go.

You should download this because...

- It would be fun and entertaining for road trips.
- Wiimote is very responsive and fun.
- You can pick out the best games you want for free without discs.

Go into Cydia and Search for "snes4iphone (Cydia Store)" by ZodTTD & MacCiti. This source is already added with install of cydia. Normally the blue highlighted sections mean that the tweak costs money, but as of now it is free even though it is still highlighted. Install this, it will take up 1018 kB of space. After install restart your idevice. 

*DO NOT GET THE CRACKED VERSION (FREE COPIED VERSION), FOR IT WILL CAUSE ISSUES FOR FUTURE DOWNLOADS ON CYDIA.  IT MAY ALSO CAUSE CRASHES.

Step 3: Second Download

Go into Cydia once more and search "WiiMote". After this install WiiMote OpenGL-ES Demo to make the wii remote compatible with the iPad. Restart the device after install to make the app work.

Thanks! I really enjoy playing Mario with this app.

The iPod should look fine with this app because it is built as an iPhone app. Also you won't need to use the controls on the screen of your iPod, you can just use the wii remote. Normally iPhone apps don't look good on the iPad, but it looks so good here because I have retina pad from the cydia store.
great tutorial very nice for people not very tech savvy
