Rom Hustler, the web of video game ROMs, closes. It eliminated all ROMs from its download library, and it becomes another of the pages affected by Nintendo’s demands. But below you will find up to 7 alternatives of Rom Hustler.
We already inform you of the details about this closure and the reason why it happened. It is not surprising that they have eliminated the downloadable ROMs because we have already known several cases of websites that have been reported by the Japanese company, such as LoveROMs and LoveRetro.
Alternatives to Rom Hustler
As this is cyclical on the Internet it open, for each page that closes, two of similar content. Today there are many alternatives similar to Rom Hustler that still work and offer a variety of ROMs. You can also read the best alternatives of Kickass Torrent.
One of the alternatives to Rom Hustler with more content. It has ROMs of a multitude of consoles of all times. From the 1997 Atari 2600 to ISOs from just over a decade ago on PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
It has also eliminated the content of Nintendo, before suffering a millionaire demand from the big N as Rom Hustler feared.
Despite its outdated aesthetics, its large library, its various emulators and its tutorials, this site is among the best alternatives. In its upper bar, we will easily find the different options to download what we need. In addition, it is in perfect Castilian.
Similar to the previous in content, but with an interface that, even outdated, is more friendly, having direct access to the download of ROMs and emulators, as happened in Rom Hustler.
It also offers us ROMs and emulators to play titles from decades past. In contrast, the web has no manuals of any kind and is only available in English.
The Old Computer
We are going with more alternative and this time with a website that gives us the possibility to download soundtracks of some games.
It also does not include content from NES, SNES or N64, but we do have an extensive library that orders the games of many consoles by region (if necessary, as in PlayStation) and name, indicating even the total size.
Its aesthetics is old and not especially intuitive, but it has many more options than the previous ones, including, as we have said, from music to video game covers if we want to print them, so it can be an option before the closure of Rom Hustler.
Again a website with aesthetics of more than a decade ago, but with the simplest handling of all. We chose the console in the panel on the left, choose the game, and download.
Of course, another website that has removed all Nintendo games from their downloads. Despite being present in the list, none can be downloaded.
Despite its disastrous aesthetics and chaotic navigation, this page has one of the largest catalogs available among these alternatives, comparable to it.
Even having eliminated the official ROMs of Nintendo, it has modified versions of its classic video games (at least for now). Who has not wanted to play a Super Mario driving Sonic?
This page is translated into any language by Google, which instead of helping, causes us to become more confused when navigating through it. As we say, the very good library, but cumbersome accessibility.
At last, a website that has not yet eliminated the Nintendo games. However, we leave it to the end due to its malicious browsing. When we browse the web and try to download something, we must be careful.
For example, when we select ROM and press “DOWNLOAD THIS ROM”, what will be downloaded the first time will be an EXE file, which is probably a virus or malware.
We must eliminate it without hesitation, even before the download ends. Once this is done, we can press that button again to download the ROM correctly.
Despite being one of the few alternatives that maintain Nintendo games, we must be careful when navigating through it. For the rest, it is one of the websites with the largest library of ROMs, because it has not cut its catalog. Recommended if we want to download some Nintendo ROM.
As the last of the alternatives that we leave you a website that includes content from all Sony consoles (up to PlayStation 3). The web has eliminated the downloads of the Nintendo consoles, in addition to SEGA’s Mega Drive (Genesis in the United States).
However, being able to download ISO images of more modern consoles such as PS3 is a point in their favor, unlike the previous alternatives on the list.
Is Rom Hustler safe?
We used Rom Hustler a lot. We get no virus and malware. It is safe to use and download files. Remember that users upload files. Before downloading files check user statistics.
It’s aesthetic is much more modern and friendly, and the search is simple, thanks to its distribution by consoles and an alphabetical name. In addition, many games have an image of it, to guide us on what we are downloading.
As you can see, we still have alternatives to Rom Hustler, but we have a problem if what we want is NES, SNES or N64 ROMs. The only web that allows us to download it requires a lot of care when downloading files.
