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.

Step 1: Materials
- Jailbroken idevice (iOS 5.1.x)
Files that will be downloaded:
- snes4iphone (Cydia Store)
- WiiMote OpenGL-ES Demo
Step 2: First Download
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.
Step 4: Third Download
Go back into Cydia and search snes games to pick which games you would like to play. My personal favorite is SNES Top ROMS Pack. You can pick your own favorite. You will not have to restart or reboot for this process.
Step 5: Making the WiiMote Work With the Games.
You will now want to go into your snes4iphone app. You will want to go into options and turn WiiMote Support on. Now exit the app and restart the idevice. After this process return to the app and press 1 and 2 together on the WiiMote so that the remote will become noticeable. Now just pick a game, turn your WiiMote sideways and play your favorite game!
*Controls may vary per game. After restart you may need to restart a couple more times because the WiiMote might not connect the first time.
Step 6: Enjoy
I hope you enjoy playing your Super Nintendo Games and I hope you also enjoy using the WiiMote with it!
