PolyBlast is a closed source, multi-system emulator.
PolyBlast is a closed-source fork of ares, featuring an alternative user-interface and additional emulation cores that are not present in either ares or higan.
Compared to ares
PolyBlast contains all the same emulation cores as ares does, with the addition of ZX Spectrum emulation, but allows for complex customisation options (nested peripherals, computer expansion slots/devices, etc) that are unavailable from the simple ares user interface.
Compared to higan
PolyBlast includes emulation cores that are not available in higan, and retains higan's high level of configurability, presenting it in a simple menu-driven user-interface, rather than the tree system.
