VGBA is the best GameBoy Advance emulator on the market. It runs GBA games on your phone or tablet, saves GameBoy Advance game progress at any time, and lets you easily cheat at dozens of GBA games. Share your GameBoy Advance game progress with friends, then let them continue where you've left off. Use network play to trade Pokemon or battle other GBA players via WiFi. Rewind your GameBoy Advance game play back in time with a touch of a button. This emulator does not require GBA BIOS and will also emulate clocks, rumble and tilt sensors found in GameBoy Advance games. VGBA lets you play GBA games with Bluetooth and USB joysticks, Moga gamepads, Xperia gaming buttons, 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.
* Save GBA game play at any point and go back to that point once you get killed.

* Share your current GBA game progress with other users via State Exchange feature.
* 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 and display any way you like.
* Supports Xperia Play special buttons, generic gamepads, MOGA gamepads, iCade joysticks, Wiimote, and Sixaxis controllers.
* Supports GoogleTVs upgraded to Android 4.x, such as LG G2/G3.
* 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.

    Haven't had a huge amount of use so far, but from what I have used I've loved it. Does what I expect and does it well, thank you GRE for the work you do.
