Frodo is an Open Source Commodore 64 emulator for many platforms. Hannu has been developing Symbian OS ports of Frodo since the year 2001, and all older Frodos are free.

Frodo for Symbian Frodo for Symbian

The latest version of Frodo supports sensors (accelerometer), vibration, on-screen C64 keyboard and audio engine. However, these advanced features are not included in the free emulator but require additionally installing Bilbo library, which is Donationware and can be obtained from Hannu's website.

Imagine playing Pitstop II by rotating your phone like a steering wheel, or solving Quedex maze by turning the phone in any direction. If you do not want just imagine, look at the YouTube video below and after that get Frodo and Bilbo to your phone! Note that sensors and vibration is not supported in all S60 phone models.

Visit Frodo home page to learn more about the Bilbo library and the new ehanced features.

Frodo for Symbian Frodo for Symbian

Frodo supports d64 and t64 images and looks for them in "\Others" or in "\Others\Frodo" folder.

Other features and improvements since the 0.53 version for earlier platforms include:
  • Five different slots in Quicksave
  • You can select the audio sample rate (for optimum speed vs. quality tuning)
  • The lowest level of volume is now zero
  • Support for E90 screen size
  • Fixed a bug that crashed and corrupted memory in certain screen modes
  • Contains 3 screen modes for landscape and portrait: "fast", "full screen overscan", and "full screen normal"
  • Screen mode can be changed by pressing + or from the menu
  • Screen orientation can be changed by pressing + or from the menu
  • Custom keymap support
  • Bundled games: Grid Runner, Mutant Camels, and RedRunner.

I sent a payment to the author, as a website indicated i could download the newer version, and - nothing ! not even a thanks or possibility of refund on paypal, and no update sent to my supplied email address (its not like the authors getting 400 requests a day is it ?). I learnt that lesson fast - i'll stick with no help & a freeware old version thank you. Very disappointed, i'm a programmer myself, i do know how much effort goes into these things, but these types of software are a hobby. Well I tried to do the right thing :( [Rate: 5/10]

Great experience with Bilbo, I used v.1.7 on my Nokia 6220 Classic (which is an S60 r3 phone BTW and not r5). Can't reach the onscreen keyboard though, need to remap for that. On some phones the edit key is the same as # just hold it. [Rate: 9/10]

Runs well nearly all games I throw at it. I supported some time ago and betatested it, therefore I have also bilbo library and can only repeat myself: Best emulator on E90 so far, internal screen is perfectly(!) used and only few games with very uncommon loaders refuse to start (and even then I found some workarounds for most of them)

Hello, it crashed on my favorite game (Loc) without 1541, and I cannot use it properly on my E90 because of no edit key on E90
