I don't know much about Chip-8 but never-less an emulator working on Sega Genesis is just awesome :D

is it a true emulator or something like the Mario rom ?
I don't remember the exact term for it, something like on the go refactor

As far as I know, Chip-8 isn't even a real machine (though there have been dedicated interpreters), so this is more like a VM than an emulator. Chip-8 is a specification for a really limited system.

Didn't check this yet, but my grip from the screenshots is that the screen is tiny. Can we have larger pixels? =/

The chip-8 had some popularity at one time because it was implemented on HP-48 calculators, a calculator that was itself popular among French wannabe engineers students (Math sup, Math spé) around 1995.

I'm surprised Stef doesn't know :p

I do still own my HP-48G :p It was an amazing calculator, i programmed it in assembly (with hexadecimal translated opcode). I loved its weird Saturn CPU (a custom 4 bit CPU with 64 bits registers).
Back in time Chip-8 wasn't existing and when i heard about it but it was too late for me :p

Tested some games like pong, space invaders and Tetris here.
You need change the speed emulation in some some games because some games runs faster and others slower.
Nice job man!
