DreamEngine lets you relive the glory days of 16-bit gaming [video]

In the world of game emulators that are now available to webOS users thanks to  the recent webOS 1.4.5 update (I know, I know, sorry AT&T and Verizon folk), VisualBoy Advance isn't the only name in town.   DreamEngine aims to bring the days of 16-bit gaming glory back into the fold.  Like most emulators you'll have to supply your own ROMS,  though two - Magical Chase and Tennis - come pre-installed.  Performance is generally smooth thanks to the miracles of overclocking, though I found that the hardware keyboard controls can take a little getting used to and the view port is somewhat on the small side.  Still, it's great to see more options like these bubble up in the 'Catalog.  

Hit the break for a video of DreamEngine in action!
