    Just search for Gameboid in the Market. (The same guy also made NESoid and SNESoid... and Gensoid). One little trick in the market place.. if you find one of these apps you can 'click' on "view more applications" and it will show you other applications the same developer has created.

    I see. Cool. Can I check again, among SNES and GBA emulator, which is the best in terms of the speed and performance in HTC Dream phone? Both are paid applications too?

    Hey guys, I just bought this off the marketplace for my Droid and I have an issue. I wanted to play Legend of Zelda Oracle of Ages on this (a game boy color game) but it's not working. I tried Wario Land 4 and it seems to work flawlessly but then again, that is a GBA game. Can this app not play GBC games? I tried Pokemon Blue and it didn't work either. The Legend of Zelda file name ended with .gbc while Pokemon ended at .gb.

    Appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

    Whats the difference between the paid version and the lite version?

    Gameboy Color is a different system than GBA, so it would require a different emulator.

    The free version does not let you save your games or save a state.

    Actually, I think that's only true for the other emulators. I'm using Gameboid Lite and it saves my games just fine. Save states seem to be the only disabled feature, and while I don't necessarily need it for the games I play I might buy just to support the developer. This app is mindblowing, and brings some great titles to my Droid :)

    This app rocks. I am on it constantly. Since I downloaded it and started playing games I've actually spent less time on my 360 and ps3.

    Only bad thing is that I wish action replay and or gameshark would work on it, I got the ROM's for both and it just says move the switch to on (like on the cartridge adapter has on the device) and seeing as no switch does that mean no luck?

    Worked perfectly for me, although I was wishing for a DS emulator. But of course, that might be asking for too much.

    Cheat input support might be interesting though.

    Check your key configuration in Settings. You will probably need to change the default A/B/Turbo/Left/Right buttons

    What a shame, they want money for it. Oh well.

    What's wrong with paying for good apps? If you enjoy it, the author deserves your support and encouragement.

    I am encouraging him/her. Encouraging him/her to make it free. :D

    There's a free version, and all it's lacking is save states.

    i'm having problems with gameboid. it barely plays half the files i throw at it. maybe i'm asking too much? i'm wondering if either the ROMs i have suck or the BIOS i have sucks.

    so far:

    Astro Boy - OK
    Fire Emblem - OK
    Golden Sun - OK
    Kingdom Hearts - Craps out during intro video, goes into endless loop
    Mario Kart - OK
    Mario Tennis - Sound stutters/lags, eventually crashes app
    Super Monkey Ball Jr - Terrible sound
    Zelda - OK but colors got goofed up during a fade sequence and never fixed.

    I'm guessing only rooted phones can take advantage of these emulators anyway?

    I was asking if they had to be rooted..I guess not.

    Rooting is not required. It's just a standard Market app.

    If you don't think a perfectly running emulator which allows you to play hundreds of some of the best games ever made is worth a couple bucks on your phone... then you are a cheap bastard. :)

    Sorry, couldn't resist. The guy obviously spent many, many hours to get this emulator running smoothly. I've owned NESoid and SNESoid since they were first released on the G1 and he has been updating these things constantly (he didn't just roll it out and forget it). I honestly don't understand why some people think they are entilted to full free applications all the time. The value you get for your $3 is BY FAR worth it.

    If I can get it for free on a PC or a damn iPod touch, I should be able to get it free on a phone.
    You can kiss my ass. There's not a single damn app on the market worth even a penny.

    Calm down please. Whether an app is worth money is a matter of opinion.
