GBA.emu


Advanced open-source Gameboy Advance emulator based on VBA-M r1097, designed and tested on the Xoom, Galaxy S2, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, NVidia Shield, and Xperia Play, but works on virtually any device with similar or better specs (at least a 1GHz CPU for best results).

Features include:
* High-level BIOS emulation, no BIOS file needed
* Backup memory and save state support, state files are interchangeable with the PC version of VBA-M.
* Supports games in .gba format, optionally in .zip files
* Cheat code support using VBA-M-compatible files (.clt extension), don't use any "Master" codes since they aren't needed
* Configurable on-screen multi-touch controls
* HID Bluetooth/USB gamepad & keyboard support compatible with any input device recognized by the OS (MOGA Pro, etc.), Wii controllers also supported if running Android 4.1 or lower, all devices support custom key profiles
* Works in any orientation

The game Motocross Challenge is included courtesy of developer David Doucet. Additional ROMs must be supplied by the user. A number of public domain games/demos are available at www.pdroms.de. Transfer games anywhere to your internal storage/SD card and browse to them from within the app (default SD card directory is /mnt/sdcard).

Excellent... I've been a fan for years. You really can't beat any of Robert's excellent emulators, including this one. Accurate emulation and very full-featured. Worth the money.

Another must-buy from the Master of Emulation Superb app from Robert, again using the same layout and framework as his others. MAME next, please! PROS - simple, slick and stable to use. His consistent interface is a great way to get into emu as a hobby or have a quick blast on games games that you love. CONS - occasional f/cs, especially selecting inputs or loading ROMS. Blocky on tablets - needs more image processing options. Some menu options too masonic and need explaining in either in the app or online.
