GBA emulator Android


This GBA emulator Android OS (or iPhone & iPad version) can just like a real Gameboy Advance also play original Gameboy (Color) games. So there is no need to get a separate emulator. Because of this the author has stopped development of his “normal” Gameboy emulator Visual Boy.

It is the first gameboy advance emulator to support multiplayer for smartphone! Later versions added support for the NintendoDS portable console.
