Ludo Alternatives

Ludo is described as 'Emulator Frontend able to run retro video games. Ludo does not emulate the consoles itself, but does it through emulator plugins called libretro cores. Libretro cores are well known emulators (like Snes9x or Genesis Plus GX or PCSX) stripped from their user interface' and is an app in the gaming software category. There are more than 10 alternatives to Ludo for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iPhone. The best alternative is RetroArch, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Ludo are Lutris, Snes9x, GameHub and ePSXe.

Ludo alternatives are mainly Game Emulators but may also be Game Library Managers or Linux Distros. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Ludo.
