VGB is a Nintendo GameBoy emulator. It runs Nintendo GameBoy Classic (GB), Nintendo GameBoy Color (GBC), and Super GameBoy (SGB) games on your Android phone or tablet. VGB also supports the GameBoy Printer, GameLink, RumblePak, GameGenie and GameShark cheat codes, and more. Save your Nintendo GameBoy game progress at any moment, brag about it to your friends, then let them start where you have left off. Or play together via the Internet. VGB supports GoogleTV and lets you play using Xperia Play, Moga, iCade, 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.
* Supports Moga and iCade gamepads, Nyko PlayPad, Xperia Play special buttons 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.
* 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.

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.

    This app does what its supposed to and was doing more. Loved the advanced settings update until it stopped working. I was able to save multiple snapshots and enable built in cheats if I so desired. Now the advanced settings button is no longer working on

    I like using this emulator, net play being a very nice feature, but there are some minor things I would like to see such as being able to set buttons like save state on a game pad and using net play for two different games I.E. pokemon Red and pokemon Gol

    I like it but it's not for me I had it for a little more than refund time which is 15 minutes and I couldn't get my refund so if I could get it that would be great

    It's everything you could ask for from a mobile emulator. Far exceeds expectations, 10/10 would bang.
