Magic Engine

Version 1.1.3

TurboGrafx-16 emulator.

Magic Engine overview

Magic Engine is a PC-Engine console emulator.

The PC-Engine - also known as the TurboGrafx-16 in the USA, was a nice little machine made by NEC. The first model came out in 1987 followed one year later by a CD extension that made the PC-Engine the first console to have CD games.

This was quite an impressive machine, with good graphic capacities (16-bit video processor, 512 colors, 64 sprites) and a fast and powerful 8-bit CPU. It also had a very good game collection, with unique and high quality games. And even today some PC-Engine games are still without an equivalent on modern consoles. Of course if you only enjoy 3-D games, well, the PC-Engine may disappoint you a bit, but if you love good old 2-D games, especially shoot'em up, give it a try, it really has some excellent games!

This version is based on the latest Windows version and includes some extra goodies from MagicEngine-FX and some Mac only features:

  • Improved UI
  • Smooth integration with OS X
  • Eject CDs and control the CD-ROM disk speed from the UI
  • Different video settings for windowed and fullscreen modes
  • Two different fullscreen modes
  • Improved scanlines
  • Save states and backup RAM files compatible with the Windows version
  • Nice dialog to install the key file
