Best PSP/Vita Homebrews for May 2012

Here are the 10 most popular homebrews as voted by you in May 2012. Lots of “long time champions” in this list, but a few new comers as well… Enjoy!

10. Flyer

This one is still a technical Demo more than a full game, but it already has a few goals, even if it’s lacking enemies currently. In Flyer, you handle a spaceship, and need to destroy targets to progress in the level.


Download Flyer here.

9. Pro CFW

The open source Custom Firmware is still growing strong, progressively replacing older Custom Firmwares on everybody’s PSP.

8. Lamecraft (compatible PSP/Vita)

Since it was released in 2011, Lamecraft, a great Minecraft clone, has never lost its popularity. Its creator Drakon updated it recently to make it compatible with VHBL on the PS Vita!

7. Mindcraft

Mindcraft is a 2D clone of the popular game Minecraft, not unlike Lamecraft presented above.

Download Mindcraft here

6. PSPokemon Grey

A Pokemon “clone” for the PSP. Beta1 of this game was merely a demo, but Beta 2, released a month ago, is a full game with actual battles, etc… The only issue is that it’s in German for now…let’s hope for updates :)

Download PSPokemon Grey here


HomebrewStore is a digital marketplace for homebrew PSP content. This content ranges from games to applications to themes. All of the content on the HomebrewStore, including the HomebrewStore itself can operate on any PSP unit from firmware 5.00 and up, no hacking required.

It also features a nice “autoupdate” feature!

Download HomebrewStore here


Our homebrew loader is getting lots of attention since it is currently the only way to run homebrews on Sony’s Playstation Vita. On the Vita, you’ll need one of the exploitable games (we’ll release new ones soon enough) in order to run HBL.

Download VHBL here

3. Open CMA

Still need to introduce this? Open CMA is Virtuous Flame’s tool that allows you to copy files from and to your vita without the need to be connected to the internet.

2. Cave Story (Compatible PSP/Vita)

The old school platformer with some RPG elements is still one of people’s favorites.

Works on the vita too!

1. Snes9xTYL (Compatible PSP/Vita)

The most stable and fastest Super NES emulator on the PSP, also works on the Vita with VHBL. ’nuff said?

Download Snes9xTYL here (This version is recommended for VHBL)
