ViGaMuP is a Video Game Music player for Android, currently supporting KSS and SPC formats. ViGaMup was designed to have a very usable interface; so not just be able to play the files, but also have a good experience getting the music and selecting tracks and games.

Features:

- Support from Android 4.4 up to the latest
- Tested on real devices with Android 5, 6 and 7, 4.4 on VM
- Easy to use and quick user interface
- Afaik the only Android player using libkss, more accurate playback then other players (they all use GME) also supports Y8950.
- Uses C based OpenSLES for audio through JNI giving high performance, changing tracks and games takes tenths of a second
- Support for dragging around in the current track once the audio has been generated, similar to msxplay.js
- Very easy downloading using QR codes with the camera; visit vigamup.tk for music (on some other PC or phone)
- Music packs must have a list of tracks to play, so no pushing next to find the music like most kss players require, also skipping the SFX

- Logo can be included, they will be used in the app
- vigamup.tk has a nice polished Konami package, all logos and track info with correct playing times included
- Notification on >= Android 5 for playback similar to Play Music and Spotify; you can swipe the app away, the nofication and the service will keep running
