While most arcade emulators emulate multiple games, there are several that only emulate a single game. Since many arcade game machines run on similar hardware, this isn't the most efficient way to make an emulator, however, many multiple arcade machine emulators begin as single game emulators. Nicola originally programmed several single game emulators including a Pacman emulator and merged them together creating the very first MAME! Many of the emulators listed below many have been discontinud due to merging with MAME. Many are provided for archival, historical, or perhaps source code use reasons. If you've ever wanted to code a simple emulator, this might be an invaluable source of information.
