MAME: Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator and Accessibility
Commodore 64 Emulation and Accessibility.

Coin-operated Video Games - Emulation and Accessibility - Image of a late 1970's arcade including Canyon Bomber.

Make mention of worth using this - some great fun games - cheat files - front ends - bit about owning roms. Try to seek out the Music Maker software for one-switch play (Beatles, Classics, Pop). Video games are fun and also give people the power to do amazing things that they would be unable to in real life.

With the right specialised hardware, many standard video games can be played by anyone, no matter the disability. "One Switch Gaming" is especially interested in games playable with a single switch, and in campaigning for accessibility features in all games.

SPEED CONTROL METHODS: Set "Frame Skipping" to "Draw Every Frame" from MAME's advanced properties settings. Then use the CPU Killer speed utility.
