imameDecember 23rd update: No surprise, iMame has been pulled from the app store.

It appears that a version of MAME has snuck onto iOS devices yesterday in the Apple App Store. iMame even supports adding of roms to the app, which is of course a “no no” in the Apple App Store. So, you might want to download it RIGHT NOW before Apple removes this from the store.

iMame Supports the iCade arcade cabinet and even the iControlPad.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. The reason we are telling you to download this RIGHT NOW is emulators don’t usually survive long on the iTunes store as downloading games to play for free isn’t legal unless you actually own the game.

There is also a hidden way of adding ANY ROM to this iMame, making it a target for removal any second off the iTunes App store. Download iPhone Explorer free for your Windows PC from http://www.macroplant.com/iphoneexplorer/ and then browse to your iTunes connected iPhone, iPod touch or iPad to copy roms into this folder: /Apps/iMame/documents/ . Don’t forget to click OPTIONS to rescan for the new roms you just copied over. In tests, Mame rom version 0.375b works the best.

Visit Techmamba.com for a complete list of supported ROMS.
