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.

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 emulator! Using it to link up two devices running LSDj. Sync works pretty well... But the sound is a little wacky on the Wave channel. Drum kits and samples sound very weird. Otherwise... Methinks I'm about to get back into 1st and 2nd gen Pokémon again since trading is a cinch. 4 stars until sound is perfectly emulated. I can only imagine how Pikachu sounds in Yellow version on this emulato

    Mega Man Zero 1,2,3,&4 all seem to freeze right before being able to play. Why?

    I hate to rate 1 star, but I seem to remember this working with zip files before. Now to play anything I must uncompress everything, which I have a ton of games so that is impractical. Because of this i may have to look elsewhere.
