VGB - GameBoy (GBC) Emulator


VGB is a Nintendo GameBoy emulator. It runs Nintendo GameBoy, GameBoy Color, and Super GameBoy games on your phone or tablet. VGB also emulates GameBoy Printer, GameLink, RumblePak, GameGenie and GameShark cheat codes, and comes with cheats for dozens of popular games. Save your GameBoy 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.

* 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.

* 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 GameBoy Advance 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.

Best GB emulator I have used The performance is great; doesn't lag out while playing games. And it is actively being maintained with fixes and features being released every so often.

Great emulator but sound is way off 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)
