Best GBA Emulators For Android

Although game development for the Game Boy Advance by Nintendo has ceased and the last game was officially released by the company was in 2008. Demand for system has remained fairly consistent. Years later all the people who owned or played GBA back in its glory days want to relive those days and play their favorite titles again.

4. Smart GBA Emulator

Some of the best features of this app is that it supports multiple file formats. So if your games are in either .rar, .7z, .zip, and or .gba you are supported. Smart GBA has been specifially optimized for Android phones and tablets. So if you are gaming on a tablet this may be a suitable option. I personally tried out this app and all my games ran smoothly.

3. MyBoy

Supports gameshark and action replay. So if you like to cheat in your games this app may be suitable for you. According to the developer of MyBoy will run nearly every single game boy advance game without any issue. Although I have not tried every single game out there. I did try it out with a few titles such as Super Mario and Pokemon, they did all run perfectly.


Ran all my games perfect without lag. MyGBA is based off open source project Gameboid. Some of the main features of this app consist of the ability to transfer roms from internal storage to your SD Card, run games in either .gba or .zip file. I didn’t really notice too much of a difference to the original Gameboid project but there maybe internal updates that I may have missed. You be the judge.

I thought this was the best gba emulator for android to use because you can save multiple save slots and there is even an auto save feature which can come in handy.
