Attract Mode è un frontend che può sostituire EmulationStation.
E’ possibile avviare Retropie con un’interfaccia grafica alternativa, che ha la particolarità di essere “appariscente”, con più animazioni ed effetti audio rispetto a ES, ha inoltre una struttura dei menu a wheel.
Attract Mode è open source ed è disponibile per PC, Mac, Linux e Raspberry.
