Free Amiga Emulators

Software emulation of the Commodore Amiga

Free Amiga Emulators

The free Amiga emulators on this page emulate the hardware of a Commodore Amiga on either a Windows machine, a Macintosh, DOS, Linux or other systems. The software basically creates an environment that makes Amiga programs think that they are running on a Motorola 680x0 Amiga with its specialized graphics and sound chips, even if it is actually running on a PC or a Mac. As a result, you can run Amiga games and other programs even if you do not own an Amiga machine.

Note that most of these emulators only emulate the Amiga hardware. You will still need an image file of the Amiga Kickstart ROM as well as the operating system software.

Free Amiga Emulation Software

Amiberry (ARM-based boards like Raspberry Pi) New

Amiberry is an open source Amiga emulator for ARM-based boards like the Raspberry Pi, Asus Tinkerboard, Odroid XU4, etc. It includes JIT (just-in-time) CPU and FPU support. It runs on Linux. The software is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3.

WinUAE (Windows)

WinUAE is an implementation (or port) of the UAE Amiga emulator for Windows. It has all the features of the UAE Amiga emulator (you can read about it elsewhere on this page).

Scripted AMIGA Emulator (web-based)

This is a web-based emulator designed to work in your web browser (using JavaScript and HTML5). You can either play the selection of games they have available on their website or download the source code and use it on your own machine. In the latter case, you will need to have your own Amiga Kickstart ROM and disk images. Note that their website states that you will need a fast computer and a modern web browser. It emulates the A1000/A1000-Velvet, A500/A2000, A500+, A600, A1200, A3000, and A4000/030. CPUs emulated include the 68000, 68010, 68020/68030 at variable speeds. The source code is licensed under the GNU General Public License.


This is an Amiga emulator for the Playstation Portable ("PSP"). You will still need a valid Amiga Kickstart ROM dump file and disk images.

FS-UAE Amiga Emulator (Windows, macOS, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD)

This emulator is based on WinUAE, and emulates the A500, A500+, A600, A1200, A1000, A3000 and A4000 models. It comes with its own kickstart ROM, but you can also use the ROM from a real Amiga computer (which should improve compatibility).

MaxUAE (macOS)

MaxUAE is a port of the UAE Amiga emulation software to Mac OS X. You can read more about UAE elsewhere on this page.

E-UAE (Linux, macOS, AmigaOS4, MorphOS, BeOS)

E-UAE is a port of the UAE Amiga emulator (see elsewhere on this page) to Linux and other Unix-type systems such as Mac OS X, BeOS, AmigaOS itself (both the 68k and PPC verisons), etc.

WinFellow (Windows)

WinFellow is an Amiga emulator for Windows. It comes with source code.

UAE Amiga Emulator (Source Code)

(Update: the official UAE Amiga Emulator website appears to be gone.) The UAE Amiga emulator emulates the hardware of the Commodore Amiga 500, 1000 and 2000. Specifically, it emulates a Motorola 68000, 68010, 68020, 68040 CPU and optionally a 68881 FPU, OCS, ECS and AGA graphics chipset with the sprite-playfield collisions, up to 2 MB RAM and 8 MB Fast RAM or 8 MB RAM without Fast RAM, up to 64 MB Zorro III Fast RAM, up to 1 MB Slow RAM, up to 8 MB graphics card memory, 4 3.5" floppy drives, that is, DF0:, DF1:, DF2: and DF3:, a hard disk, joystick support which may be mapped to the numeric keypad, mouse support, full stereo sound with 4 x 8bit channels, state saving, etc. The emulator includes ROM emulation (emulation of the Amiga Kickstart ROM). The emulator is available in source code form. If you are looking for pre-compiled versions, see the entries for WinUAE (Windows), MaxUAE (Mac) and E-UAE (Unix-based systems, like Linux) on this page (the page you are reading). The acronym "UAE" probably does not stand for anything, although some call it the "Unix Amiga Emulator" while others call it the "Ubiquitous Amiga Emulator".
