You got me on both points.

Why I was saying that? because I witnessed DS ports and the screen layout was slightly different (DS vertical resolution is 200 pixels, less that most of portrait mode arcade games resolution at the time). So for instance pacman credit indicator is not at the original location.

Now I'm wondering: did they rewrite emulators or just copied MAME source code, which would clearly be a case of GPL license violation Hard to tell without disassembling and comparing code structures...

So rewriting the game natively avoids the use of an emulator and avoids a possible legal issue ... with their own product
