Lifehacker has a great feature today that shows you exactly how to play SNES games on your iPad in just four easy steps. I know we’ve shown people playing SNES on their jailbroken iPads before, but this feature actually sets it all out for you like a very easy-to-follow instruction manual, including showing you how to jailbreak your iPad using Spirit. Provided you’re not averse to jailbreaking your iPad, with the risk, albeit minimal, that entails, go right ahead and follow the video instructions, but be sure to back up your iPad first of course.
Once you’ve jailbroken your iPad, you simply buy and download snes4iphone for $6, find yourself some game ROMs, and sync your Wii Remote to your iPad, all of which is explained very thoroughly on the video and in the feature. You should then be able to sit back and enjoy playing classic SNES games on your iPad!
