VGBA is the best GameBoy Advance emulator on the market. It runs GBA games on your phone or tablet, lets you save GameBoy game progress at any time, and comes with cheats for dozens of GameBoy games. Share your game progress with friends, then let them continue where you've left off. Use network play to trade Pokemon or battle other VGBA players via WiFi. Rewind your game play back in time with a touch of a button. VGBA lets you play GameBoy Advance games with generic Bluetooth joysticks, Xperia gaming buttons, Moga gamepads, 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.
* The built-in Cheatopedia offers cheat codes for dozens of popular GameBoy Advance games.

* 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.
* You do not need GBA BIOS file: VGBA emulates BIOS internally.
* Play with your hardware keyboard, gamepad, touch screen, or accelerometer.
* Rearrange on-screen buttons any way you like.
* Supports Xperia Play special buttons, generic gamepads, MOGA gamepads, iCade joysticks, Wiimote, and Sixaxis controllers.

* Fully supports x86-based Android devices, such as Dell Venue.

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.

    Works fast and let's you play games from one of the best handheld generations. Way better than the other free emulators that run slow.

    This app works incredibly well I haven't had any issues yet and have been a user since it came out its def. Worth the money if you don't want to deal with lag and freeze and it randomly closing and the user support is outstanding quick respond time and very friendly thank you creators of vgba!!
