VGB - GameBoy (GBC) Emulator

VGB - GameBoy (GBC) Emulator


VGB is a GameBoy emulator. It runs Classic, Color, and Super GameBoy games on your phone or tablet. VGB also emulates the pocket printer addon, link cable, rumble pack, cheat codes, and comes with cheats for dozens of popular games. Save your game progress at any moment, or even rewind gameplay back in time. Brag about it to your friends, then let them start playing where you have left off. Or play together over WiFi. VGB supports GoogleTV and lets you play using Xperia Play, Moga, iCade, Wiimote, Sixaxis, Nyko PlayPad, and other gamepads.

* Specifically optimized for Android devices, using assembly language and hardware acceleration to run GBC games as fast as possible.
* Supports full screen landscape and portrait modes, with many special effect options and customizable skin.
* Supports Moga and iCade gamepads, Nyko PlayPad, Xperia Play, Wiimote and Sixaxis.
* Supports GoogleTV devices running Android 4.x (Jelly Bean), such as LG G2/G3.
* The built-in Cheatopedia offers cheat codes for many popular GBC games.
* Save gameplay at any point and go back to that point once your character gets killed.
* Rewind gameplay 16 seconds back with a single keypress.
* Share your current progress in a GBC game with other users via State Exchange feature.
* Use GameLink emulation to play with other users over local network or Internet.
* Play with your hardware keyboard, gamepad, touch screen, or accelerometer.
* Record game soundtrack to MIDI files and use them as ringtones.
* On-screen buttons can be freely rearranged.

Please notice that VGB will not play GBA games: you will need VGBA for that. VGB package itself does not contain any games. You should place your own game files onto the SD card before running VGB.

Please, do not run any software you do not own with VGB. The author cannot and will not tell you where to find free GameBoy games.

Great emulator but sound is way off(some what fixed) The emulator works well but the sound on the gbc or GB gamed is not good its seems high pitched this issue is on a galaxy s4 try testing with one of those (note the developer has made an effort to fix this issue and has done a great job the sound is much better) but not perfect, NOW THE SOUND IS NEARLY PERFECT GREAT JOB 5 stars

Loving it so far. I tried almost every emulator out there and this one is giving me the best experience so far. However, some games are downloaded with the box art and I can't disable them. I'd like to have that option unless it's already there and I can't find it.

BEST Gameboy emulation!! (of yesteryear) Update 3/10/2015: The Garage Research Emulators list of apps definitely WAS the best in terms of innovation for bringing enhancements and bugfixes for its apps. Unfortunately like all good things, it seems to have hit its end. developer is either too busy or lazy to make key enhancements for his apps anymore. Have fun with my money, Mr. Dev. Update 4/7/2014: Still the best emulator suite found on Android to date! Dev is still on
Version 1000000
