Description

My Boy! is a super fast and full-featured emulator to run GameBoy Advance games on the broadest range of Android devices, from very low-end phones to modern tablets. It emulates nearly all aspects of the real hardware correctly.

This is by far the only emulator that supports link cable emulation with decent speed.

Note:
*** To play GB/C games, you need to get My OldBoy!.
*** This is the free version. You CAN save and load with the game's built-in save capability, which is accessible from within the game, not from the emulator's menu.

With the full version, you can:
• Remove Ads.
• Save to and load from multiple slots (through emulator's menu), as well as auto save & load.
• Sync saves with Google Drive. Save your games on one device and continue on the others!
• Fast-forward with speed greater than 2x (up to 16x).
• Have multiple lines of codes in a single cheat.
• Have gyroscope/tilt sensor emulation through your Android's motion sensors!
• Link up as a server with your friend (the other side as a client, which is allowed on the free version).
• Create multiple screen-layout profiles.

Highlights:
• Fastest emulation, therefore saves your battery to the MAX.
• Very high game compatibility. Run nearly all games without a problem.
• Link cable emulation either on the same device, or across devices over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
• Gyroscope/tilt/solar sensor and rumble emulation.
• Enter GameShark/ActionReplay/CodeBreaker cheat codes and enable/disable them on the fly while the game is running.
• High-level BIOS emulation. No BIOS file needed.
• IPS/UPS ROM patching
• OpenGL rendering backend, as well as normal rendering on devices without a GPU.
• Cool video filters through the support of GLSL shaders.
• Fast-forward to skip long stories, as well as slow down games to get past a level you cannot in normal speed.
• On-screen keypad (multi-touch requires Android 2.0 or later), as well as shortcut buttons such as load/save.
• A very powerful screen layout editor, with which you can define the position and size for each of the on-screen controls, as well as for the game video.
• External controllers support, such as the MOGA controllers.
• Clean & simple yet well-designed user interface. Seamlessly integrated with the latest Android.
• Create and switch to different key-mapping profiles.
• Create shortcuts to easily launch your favorite games from your desktop.

No games are included in this app and you need to obtain yours in a legal way. Place them onto your SD card, and browse to them from within the app.

Amazing GBA emulator. Good controls with the button's hitboxes very big. To the people who dont know how to get games. Go to google and search for a .gba file rom. Download and then go to the MyBoy! App and find the downloads folder and tap your rom and have fun! Don't forget to like this review so other people can see and this emulator's rating goes up. Full Review

This is a great app for playing good old GBA games! Ads aren't bad at all, I only see one every couple of days or so. Sometimes the controls (directional pad) don't work quite right, but that's probably just a user malfunction. Great app! Full Review

I got this to play Moemon and so far it's working quite well. My only gripe is that the touch controls aren't very responsive. The character moves a little even after removing my thumb from the gamepad. However for the game I'm playing, precision isn't required, so I can overlook this somewhat. Keep up the good work!

It's actually alot easier to play in terms of controls than the actual Console. (For me at least) I love the Games I can play for it. The fact that I can play these Classics that I've wanted to experience for years! It's just great. I'd recommend it to my friends, but that wouldn't make sense since THEY introduced it to me. Regardless of what people may complain about the App like the ad's, that's not a problem for me. Even if it WAS annoying and constant, all the good things would cancel it out as a downside. For whoever reads this, apologies for this being a long paragraph, but I HAD to share my opinion. At least I'm not a hater. Full Review

It is really good. I have a question though. I am playing Pokemon Saphire and I was wondering If Hacks work for this on my phone. For example; Evolving Pokemon that would normaly require a real physical cartridge, link cable for GBA, Friend with Console etc. Is it possible?? Full Review

Virtual input's controls sensitivity should be renamed controls accuracy and a true sensitivity option should be added to register solid button presses. Currently of I wave my hand a few millimeters over the screen, I can press every button unintentionally Full Review

These sneaky bastards don't let you Load your game without buying the full version. I played Pokémon Emerald for three hours and then I saved my progress. However, this emulator wouldn't continue until a 5$ fee was payed. This is a great emulator, if you have the full version. Full Review

This emulator is good, but there are some problems. The questions asked by Play Store had no relations with this emulator. And the main problem : The icon for this doesn't come on the home screen. But for other apps, the icons come. So, I think there is some problem with the app. Other things are very good. The games run smooth and the engine is very stable, but the main cause for the two star rating is the icon problem. Please fix it. Full Review

Okay guys... I gave you guys a full 5 stars... But please assist... Ever since I linked local and traded a few Pokémon... The games or the app for that matter does not function the same... It croaks and well I am not sure why. I did close the other open gba games etc... Still no change... Please assist... I am using a Huawei p10 lite. Full Review

Works perfectly well to run my old school Pokemon game. Just use the games normal save function rather than the emulator's menu save option as it asks you to buy the save slots. Full Review

This is solid. But, I noticed a small button delay for me. Not much of an issue usually, but playing Rhythm Tengoku, it does get frustrating. I'd also like it if I can change to 1.25 speed. But overall, this is worth downloading. Full Review

Denki blocks! Doesn't run on this emulator. Thus switching to John GBA. There it works just fine. Quite disappointing for an emulation of such an old console to not be able to pull all games off. First time I have EVER had a game fail entirely on ANY emulator Other than that it looks nice. Has a bunch of useless features. Link kable seems cool. No one uses it though. No bothersome apps. So that's nice but I'd prefer a cheaper paid version to get no ads whatsoever (they drain your battery) Price for paid version is a joke! Full Review

Decent emulator for GBA ROMs, however: - The directional pad sometimes does not register the correct button input, even after toying with the size and placement in the layout editor. - The mandatory ads when loading a save doesn't allow the game to load if the ad cannot be shown. This makes loading games in poor reception areas difficult, if not impossible. Will not be buying the full version out of principle. Full Review

It's really the best gba emulator by far but a major problem is that the controls are not responsive enough. It would really be great if this could be sorted out. Otherwise its an awesome app Full Review

This emulator is so good until they make you pay $5 just to have a little fun once you beat the game and want to enter cheat codes. There's over 10 other emulators that are completely free. Full Review

 Rodrigo Garcia Virgolini

This is a very solid emulator. Simple but efficient and functional. I've been using it for about 6 months now and I've barely had any problems with it. That is to say until now. As I was playing Pokemon I noticed the game would freeze for a second or two and the buttons would become unresponsive. Nothing serious, but annoying nonetheless. I checked if it also happened on other games and apparently it does. Now, I can't be sure if this problem belongs to the emulator or is caused by something else, such as my phone, but I think it's worth reporting so the devs could look into it. I hope this gets fixed whatever the problem is because I would hate to have to switch to another emulator such as VBA. UPDATE: Turns out this problem I described was happening not only on MyBoy but in pretty much every other activity on my device. After much investigation I found the culprit and it seems to be an update from google, nothing to do with this app. The emulator is awesome, I have nothing but good things to say about it. Fully recommended. To the devs keep up the great work. Full Review

Whenever I try to load a game it says to watch an ad or buy the full game, which in itself isn't an issue at all, the issue is that it constantly states that it is trying to load ad and yet never does, meaning that I've got to start again every time, when fixed I'll happily rate 5 stars as everything else is great Full Review
