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.
* 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 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.

Great Emulators I feel like the price is a little high but I can't argue with how well this and the other emulators work. Playing gameboy games on my phone is too awesome.

Not good Sound is lagging. Emulation speed is not good. Sometimes layers become invisible (tetris blast). nostalgia.GBC is much better at this point, but it hasn't scanline effects and midi export - which are the good points of this emulator.

Hardware excelration is total poop Everything is blurry. It totally ruins the pixel art. It seems like you forgot to set the texture min & mag filters to GL_NEAREST. It's a quick fix only takes 2 lines of code pleeeeeease. Spend 32 seconds of your day and fix it. Would be 5 stars if this worked properly.
