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, 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).

GameBoy on my Android!!! Again Robert Broglia has made one of the best GameBoy emulators on Android. Keep up the great work!

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...

Beep! Easily the best Gameboy emulator for Android! Sure, there are adequate free ones out there, but GBC.EMU's meager price tag is worth it for the outstanding quality and frequent updates (and Moga gamepad support). The only thing that could improve it is adding Super Gameboy features, custom palettes, and maybe a filter to recreate the look of a real GB screen (for us old farts that had the original grey brick with it's loveable blurry pea-soup screen)

Trust me this is the absolute best GBC emulator! To the developer: I do wish there was screenshots for the roms and the ability to customize the onscreen buttons. I would also love for you to make the GUI closest to the real GBC as possible like having perfect button positioning compared the the real gbc. You can get it really close in the settings too. Can I email you with some Photoshop mock ups?
