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.
