Play old school PlayStation games on your phone

Smartphone chips are becoming more and more powerful. It is amazing that the PlayStation 1 games, which we grew up playing on the classic console, can now be played on your phones. Whether you were from the PS1 era or not, the following games will surely give you a good time and are great to begin with. No spoilers.

Please note: In order to run these games, you need to install an emulator. The emulator will allow you to run these games on your phone. All these games have been tested with the latest version of ePSXe.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

With the new Resident Evil being released on consoles and PC, it is a good time to try this game out. You find yourself in the infamous Racoon City. The game is action-packed, with the usual flavours of the Resident Evil franchise. The game's antagonist, Nemesis, is surely going to give you a hard time (and possibly do a cameo in your nightmare?).

Tomb Raider 2

The Tomb Raider is one of those gaming and movie franchises which need no introduction. Play as Lara Croft as you pass through mysteries and get involved in action. The game has just the right proportion of mystery and action.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventures

If you are a fan of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventures (JBA) anime or manga, this is certainly going to give you some good hours of gaming. The game is set upon the third season of the anime (Stardust Crusaders). The game contains JBA's unique stand formula and striking resemblance to the protagonists and enemies alike, which sets it apart and is one of the must try-outs among anime games.

Crash Bandicoot

Crash Bandicoot is one of those games I grew up playing. Its colourful art style, easy gameplay and various bosses easily makes this game earn a spot on this list. You play as Crash, a bandicoot, on his adventure to disrupt the plans of his creator and rescue his girlfriend in the process.

Need for Speed II: SE

This game has been a special part of all our childhood. Its diversified range of tracks and cars, both prototypes and mass-produced, have all been special. The epitome of rich, fast driving experience those days was racing on a McLaren F1 with cockpit view. Do you remember the long list of cheat codes?
