VGBA - GameBoy (GBA) Emulator


VGBA is the best GameBoy Advance emulator on the market. It runs GBA games on your phone or tablet, saves GameBoy Advance game progress at any time, and lets you easily cheat at dozens of GBA games. Share your GameBoy Advance game progress with friends, then let them continue where you've left off. Use network play to trade Pokemon or battle other GBA players via WiFi. Rewind your GameBoy Advance game play back in time with a touch of a button. This emulator does not require GBA BIOS and will also emulate clocks, rumble and tilt sensors found in GameBoy Advance games. VGBA lets you play GBA games with Bluetooth and USB joysticks, Moga gamepads, Xperia gaming buttons, iCade joysticks, Wiimote and Sixaxis controllers. Other features:


* Specifically optimized for Android devices, using assembly language and hardware acceleration for the fastest GBA emulation.
* Supports full screen landscape and portrait modes, with many special effect options and customizable skins.

* Supports real time clock, rumble, and tilt features found in GameBoy Advance games.
* Supports network play with other VGBA users via WiFi.
* Automatically searches and downloads game box art from the Internet.

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

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

Sometimes it doesn't save In Pokemon games, sometimes it doesn't save properly and loads a save from an earlier version thus losing some of your progress. I hope there is a fix for this as right now I have to use the real time save feature which I don't like as much.
