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.

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.

    Once again I'll start off by saying I love this emulator immensely. Though I'm still not sure why those classic games won't work. I know it says in the description that you have to have the gb emulator but isn't the game a gba game not gb? I really wish I could develop an app like this to better understand what you developers go through. I'm trying to learn programming currently

    This Is probably the best Thing ever. Just one thing though am I able to use gameshark on here for pokemon games? That would be great because I've never used this before until like 1month ago when I downloaded this.
