“The ROM-dumping system lets the RetroN 5 use a wide variety of tools previously limited to computers with emulation software.

It’s a useful function for very difficult games and games with no save method, even if it can be considered its own kind of cheating. You can also take screenshots at the touch of a button and save them to an SD card. The included Bluetooth controller has dedicated buttons for save states, but you can also map these emulator-specific features to button combinations on any of your classic gamepads,” reports PCMAG.
