Question Samsung Tab 2 In App Options

Hi, I've recently bought a Samsung Tab 2. It is for my little brother as he is an avid gamer. My problem is that when testing it out I downloaded him a gameboy emulator which stays open even after pressing the homescreen. I have the same emulator on my Xperia X10 (brilliant phone ) and when done playing I have to press the options button on the actual phone. On the tablet though i cannot find the button and it is causing the battery to decrease faster than normally. Can someone please advise me on how to close the app as it is the same options button that would allow him to add cheats to his game e.c.t.

Please can you help me as the only solution i can find at the moment is to restart the device after each use :P

Have you tried using the Task Manager to kill it? It may not be the correct way to close it but it will beat restarting the tablet each time you use it.

Press and hold the Home button for a couple of seconds, then release it and the task manager should pop up.
