GBC.emu

GBC.emu


Advanced open-source Gameboy (Color) emulator based on Gambatte 0.5-wip, designed and tested on the original Droid/Milestone, Xoom, Galaxy S2, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, NVidia Shield, Xperia Tablet Z, and Xperia Play, but works on virtually any device with similar or better specs.

Features include:
* Selectable color palettes when playing original GB games
* Cheats codes in Game Genie & Gameshark (01xxxxxx type) formats
* Backup memory and save state support, state files from Gambatte should work on GBC.emu and vice-versa.
* Supports games in .gb and .gbc formats, optionally in .zip files
* 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

No ROMs are included with this app and 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).

No longer works now! This emulator used to be the best up until now because all it does now is crash on me when I go to play a game. All the other gbc emulators seem to work fine for me beside this one for some reason. I tried unistalling/reinstalling it and even restoring my phone back to its original state but it seems nothing I do works which only tells me it's the emulator that's the problem, so now I'm stuck with this as bloatware on my phone which I'm deleting now because it's no longer usable...just pathetic really!

The best Game Boy/Game Boy Color emulator, but needs Link Cable support. Without a doubt, this is by far the best Nintendo Game Boy/Game Boy Color emulator currently available... Fast, easy to use, compatible with everything and chock full of settings to tweak GBC.emu to your needs - who needs smartphone games when you can quite literally carry thousands of Game Boy/Game Boy Color titles around with you? In fact, my only complaint is the lack of Link Cable functionality (crucial to the "Pokémon" series in particular), for which a star is lost...

Overall, Average The app has a lot of great features some of the other apps don't have, and yet is strangely missing others; custom buttons can't be set, for loading or saving states, for instance. A fast forward button exists; however, lower speeds aren't available, such as 1.25x, 1.5x and 2x speed (it starts at 3x and goes in increments to 8x). Finally, there's a toggle in the options to ignore the warning for saving over states, but not one to remove the warning for loading them.
