Stella is an open-source, multi-platform Atari 2600 emulator.



Stella is also available as a libretro core for RetroArch, albeit an older version (3.4.1).

It has some television filters to up the nostalgia factor.


SDL 2.0. You need this as it's required to run Stella (and some versions aren't packaged with it.) It's easy to install. It's just a .dll that you drop into your Stella folder.
