Awesome Like the other emulator's, its very good quality with lots of features. Perfect, I love how you can change the design of the buttons and customise it. Best emulator for Android. Well worth the money.

Can't overwrite old .sav files The tittle says it all. I can load from the .sav file but when i save my progress through the game it doesn't overwrite the old .sav file. If i delete the .sta file and save, i lose all my progress since the last save i did with the older version.

It's a few steps from being the perfect Game Boy emulator. Before purchasing it i saw someone making a coment about the audio, he said the drums and some high pitched sounds were odd. I made the purchase anyway and i am very happy with it! However i too noted this in Pokemon Blue and Crystal. Please dev! Could you check this out? Then this would be the only Game Boy emulator we ever need!
