As you guessed from the name, this is an emulator for the NES / Dendy console. You can install any games that were released on the legendary 8-bit console into it. In the application itself, there are no games, they need to be searched for and downloaded into the phone’s memory, but this is not a problem, since there are just a lot of sites with retro games and finding them is not a problem.
