My favorite NES emulator is NESten
because it has an amazing "cheat finder". I loved finding cheats for old games but I only have a Mac now. If anyone is familiar with the cheat finder in NESten can you recommend a similar emulator for Mac os?

For those who are not familiar with the cheat finder in NESten this is how it works: You have two options, one to search for a known value, the other is to search for a value based on it incrementing and decrementing. There is also an option for no-change in value. This lets you find the place in the rom's memory where, for example, the amount of gold it stored and then change that value or freeze it.
I can see how it would be fun to find "cheats" in other software as well. For example finding a "cheat" in a standalone mac game. If this type of "cheat finding" software called something more generic?
