Developer Oatmeal Dome has created a Gamecube and Wii emulator for iOS. The app currently only works on jailbroken iOS devices. The project is in an alpha phase, so the app still has some problems.

Developer Oatmeal Dome released the emulator on Sunday. Such games can be emulated on Android phones for some time now. DolphiniOS is based on the Dolphin emulator for PCs and Android. It is the first smooth-running Gamecube and Wii emulator for iPhones and iPads.

There is already a Gamecube and Wii emulator for Apple’s mobile operating system, which is called GC4iOS. However, due to technical difficulties, it can only run certain games at low frame rates. This should not be the case with DolphiniOS. Based on initial testing on YouTube, the emulator seems to run most games well at a fairly stable 30fps on an iPhone XR. This is how Super Mario Sunshine works properly on DolphiniOS. In addition, the emulator can be used to play Wii games like Super Mario Galaxy. For this, users can optionally connect a Wii Remote.

The DolphiniOS emulator can be installed via Cydia, a kind of app store for iOS devices with a jailbreak. The emulator uses roms. According to the developer, users can easily make their own games from their own games. They do need a Nintendo Wii for this. Installing ROMs is not going very smoothly at the moment, NotebookCheck reports. This is because the interface of the app is not yet completely finished.
