Very recently jailbroke my old iPhone 4s after upgrading to a hand-me-down 5s, and I'm planning to do the same with an old 2nd gen iPod i dug up from the depths of who knows where.

The original intent for doing the jailbreak was to turn the phone into a quasi gaming handheld since I don't have the money at the moment to buy something like a DS,PSP,(insert outdated handheld here), etc. and a bunch of games.

The phone is running on IOS 9.3.5 and was given a semi untethered jailbreak with phoenix (very good way to do it by the way), and very happily runs Cydia.

If anyone has any suggestions for game emulators, ports, home-brew, applications and games that are compatible,(or literally any other way to run decent games on it), that would be awesome.

anything i might need to use a bluetooth controller with aforementioned apps, etc would also be a big help

feel free to post any personal expirience with this kind of thing, or anything to be avoided as I am pretty new to the jailbreak community.
