MagicEngine is an emulator for the NEC PC Engine (known in the west as the TurboGrafx-16). It can run HuCard images, and with the right CD System Card ROMs, all CD based titles as well, including Arcade Card CD-ROM titles.

This is a shareware emulator that can still be registered on the author's site:

There are some limitations of the emulator, however:

* Only real CDs are supported for PC Engine CD-ROM games. Images downloaded from the internet can be burned to CD to play.
* CDs will not run without a CD System Card ROM image.
* The shareware version of this emulator only allows for a 5 minute session at any given time, but the time limit can be circumvented by save stating and immediately reloading the save state.
