Bring a power bank for your phone and install a GameBoy emulator. I use this one. Get "The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap" and those 16 hours will be over in no time.
Use Mupen64Plus FZ instead, it gets kept up to date, and is quite open about being based on the Mupen64Plus AE code that so many other emulators keep claiming as their own
My Boy! gba emulator now supports syncing saves with google drive. Making it the best way to game on any android device since 90% of mobile games are just money vacuums.
(not sure if the free version allows syncing)
That is a real game on iOS and Android. I played it for a while to see if anything actually happens and nothing does.
Then play Pokemon again. Download a GBA Emulator here and download the pokemon game you want searching for Pokemon 'name' ROM. Run the ROM file in the emulator & enjoy playing pokemon on your computer. Phone user? Get this app to run ROM files (there is also a paid/full version that can be downloaded for free if you search on the internet).
Holy shit, the reviews for that game are hilarious.
"Don't waste your time I opened the game today, and it stated I have -12,000 balloons. That's a negative! How did I lose 14,000 ballons?!?"
"No.... How do you get negative balloons? Don't waste your time with this game. You will pit in the work for nothing."
"Kinda dumb You need you pay to unlock powers then pay to use them each time. And power up are just things that are normally in a game like the pause button."
People dont seem to realize that its a joke
I don't recall the name I used it a while back, give me a sec.
Edit: looks like it was called myBoy but now that retroarch is out I'd look into that because open source and free and stuff.
The best GBA emulator imo is the paid version of My Boy https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastemulator.gba Performance wise the free version is the exact same, just without couple of extra features...
I know this has been mentioned in here before but I haven't seen it recently, so for folks who don't know, they actually did make that game.
The best part of it is the people reviewing it being like "idk this game is kind of boring and stupid." Amazing.
Edit: I changed the link to be the actual link to the play store, not just something that looked like the actual play store page on my computer.
I'm gonna go a step further and recommend Mupen64 FZ.
It gets updated quite often and runs a lot better than the regular one.
I recently discovered Android version of The World Ends With You , a JRPG with awesome music and original mechanics, first released on NDS. One of the few ports of console games where the game ended up being better than original IMHO. I envy everyone who has yet to experience the story for the first time...
Duck Tales is okay. More of a nostalgia factor if you played it years ago on console. If you didn't it may not stand up as well for you.
In general there are many higher priced games worth the money IMHO.
Link me: Sproggiwood, Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, Icewind Dale, This war of mine, XCom, 9th Dawn 2, Crashlands, MCPE, Templar Battleforce RPG, Crowntakers, Pixel Heroes Byte and Magic
edit: MCPE link failed - should be https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mojang.minecraftpe&hl=en
Don't forget the Playstation emulator! You'll generally need a beefier phone, but man is there a ton of fun to be found.
Link for the interested. It requires some effort to get games on there, but once they're in, you'll have hours of enjoyment!
I don't get it. The Play store listing doesn't specifically list any supported devices, and the search on the Mojang support site is seemingly useless in that regard.
So by default, I'd assume that ALL Android devices are supported. Is this just a case of a customer support person not knowing that Chromebooks are now Android devices?
I only know of MyBoy for GBA and OldBoy for GB(C)
I love "The World Ends With You". Its a DS port and was built for touch controls so it translates perfect to smartphones.
The dialog is a bit cringy sometimes but the story overall interesting. Combat is super fun where you euip different pins which you activate with certain touch controls. You can also level and evolve your pins.
Overall i have great fun with it, check it out here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.square_enix.android_googleplay.subarashikikonosekai_solo&hl=en
Feel free to give my build of Mupen64Plus AE a try here:
If you have a fast device, you can use the GLideN64-Very-Accurate emulation profiles which are the most accurately graphically. And the performance is great in shield devices.
If you need best performance without caring for graphics, you can stick with the defaults.
I believe all of that should be possible without root (definitely these apps)
Snes9x (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.explusalpha.Snes9xPlus&hl=en) for SNES
Mupen64Plus FZ (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mupen64plusae.v3.fzurita&hl=en) for N64
Just a heads up, this version is completely up to date and updated every 2 days or so.
This game is so awesome.
And payment model is plain genius, just like on Smash Hit. I don't know if they make enough money by that model but I like it so much that I spare 2$ even if I don't really need extra premium features.
If you've got a low end device use the My Boy! emulator. If you've got a midrange or better device, go with Retroarch's mGBA core.
I use the My Boy! Gameboy Advanced emulator and it works flawlessly. There is a free and paid version and the free one works great. My bluetooth controller worked with it no problems.
There's a ton of excellent emulators available for Android, and a great resource is /r/EmulationOnAndroid
Good, that'll make it way easier. This emulater is very good. We aren't allowed to directly link ROMs here, but you can get a FE7 ROM at a site like CoolRoms. After that, just open the emulater and you should be good to go.
If you wish, you can also use My Boy! Free and play emulated Game Boy Advance games like Advance Wars.
My Boy!: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastemulator.gbafree&hl=fr
A.W. gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gj07BISWs0U
I'm going to recommend actually playing advanced wars using My Boy! emulator.
The free one will be sufficient for your uses, but the paid version adds a lot and supports the developer.
I really enjoyed Tanks of Freedom, which is an MIT-Licensed FOSS game in the spirit of advanced wars. However, the game lacks good documentation, so it takes a bit of guesswork to get going.
Oh, a 2d version of this? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mediocre.smashhit
I'd write where the inspiration came from just to be upfront about it.
Looks good though, gonna try it out as soon as I can.
He and I use MyBoy emulator: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastemulator.gbafree&hl=en
The rom can be found with just a simple google search.
Just searching up GBA emulators in the play store or whatever apple products use will probably get you some free ones.
The best working Mario Kart is the one for N64.
It's quite easy to set up. I'm using Mupen64plus fz. You download the Mario Kart ROM, put on your Android TV or a USB drive and can start.
In addition the are Mario Karts for GameCube and Wii you can emulate with dolphin. But it's hard to set up and not working very well.
For specific questions I would head over to /r/emulationonandroid.
Hey, You should definitely try My Boy!/My OldBoy!. Definitely the best GB emus around. Here's a link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastemulator.gbafree&hl=en And one for GBC: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastemulator.gbcfree&hl=en
My Boy! is where it's at. Cheats work in the full version, as do savestates.
Other than the ones you've tried, you could check out the VBA-M / VBA NEXT cores of RetroArch, but I have no idea if those support cheats.
i dont get it, you say inspired by duet, but is it not the same game? to me as a consumer, it looks exactly the same. i don't see why i'd play it over duet https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kumobius.android.duet
The app that they're using is My Boy! btw. There's also a paid and game boy color version. You can simply download many ROMs and play them.
Just in case anybody thought playing old game boy games on Android is exclusive to this thing.
MyBoy. Then download a rom and away you go! Download a rom on your Android phone, and then find it on your device in the MyBoy app.
ePSXe is amazing. Tons of video options, control options, etc. Easy to set up, and should run well for you. I just beat MGS on my 6P using it actually. Great experience all things considered.
Just in case you weren't aware, you can get PlayStation emulators on Android and iOS these days - then all you'd need is to search for the relevant ROM...
Also worth mentioning that you can use Bluetooth controllers with an Android device ;)
(edited to add: I use ePSXe (Android version) )
Download GBA Emulator here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastemulator.gbafree

My Boy! - GBA Emulator
Been using this one for years now and have the paid version, not so much for the added features but to support this great app.
Here's the link for it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastemulator.gba
Yeah, just grab an emulator and the translated rom.
RetroArch has a good GBA core, but if you don't want to deal with that there are plenty of stand-alone emulators as well, such as My Boy!.
If you have a fast Android device, Mupen64plus FZ works ok as well with GLideN64:
This build of GLideN64 is already included.
It's possible to multiplayer on a Wii-U but only for players who are directly connected:
To play on an actual server, or with someone else over the internet would require a different platform.
Your cheapest option would probably be a budget tablet and the edition of Minecraft specifically designed for tablets - originally called "Minecraft: Pocket Edition" but now just called "Minecraft". You buy it via the Google Play store.
This Edition of Minecraft has some Mojang-endorsed servers associated with it. However, it is up to you as a parent to supervise your child while online - these servers are moderated, but they are not babysitters.
As ever, the internet is not a safe place for unsupervised children.
You downloaded malware instead of the file, and I must say that's not directly related to Android, since you're new to it. Follow the other comments.
I would also like to say that the best N64 emulator is Mupen64 Plus FZ edition.
Mupen64Plus FZ, although I haven't personally used it yet.
Your experience will be highly dependent and what settings and plugins you use when it comes to N64 emulation.
I can also confirm that Nintendo 64 emulators work decently on it with a little tinkering with the settings. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mupen64plusae.v3.fzurita&hl=en is the best I've found. I was able to use a Xbox 360 controller and a OTG cable to play it.
Use it on a rom (any pokemon rom from GB-DS) to switch trade evolutions to lvl ones and other cool hacks if you want.
OR Im using a GBA emulator for Android that allows wifi/Bluetooth trades, or trades w/ another save file on the same device.
Pro Tip! There is a free version of this emulator that doesn't allow loading a save state.. however link still works for trading... You could use a different GBA emulator thats free, but then save the actual game to the rom... then open it with the Link one only when you want to trade, if you can't spare the $5.
ich habe mal eine zeitlang mit dem MyBoy! GB Advance Emulator gespielt. (ich werde dir natürlich nicht sagen, dass du auch nach der Pro Version APK suchen kannst) Da findest du dann auf google APK's zu feuerrot z.b. Das ist das Advance remake zu der roten Edition. Speichern erfolgt dann über die App. Klappt super alles und macht echt spaß.
Why on Earth are you trying to use a cycle-accurate emulator on a performance-constrained device?
Just use Snes9x. It's more than accurate enough- bsnes/higan is only really necessary with a small number of edge cases, and comes with system requirements an order of magnitude higher.
Which, obviously, is fine- if you're on a desktop-class computer. But a smartphone? No reason to not use Snes9x.
Frankly, I'd recommend just using Snes9x EX instead- it's pretty much the gold standard for SNES emulators on mobile.
It's not just cute, it's perfect. Perfect balancing, brilliant mission design, entertaining story, memorable music and sound effects. It's by far the best GBA game and because it's turn-based, you can easily control it with imprecise touch controls. Because it's a mobile title, mission length is short.
My Boy! Free runs the game flawlessly even on very old devices like my 600MHz LG from 2010.
The only ones I use are ePSXe and Snes9x EX+
Other than that, I just play Steam/PC games on the SHIELD. Oh and some Android native games.
You could play them on a psx emulator on android.
Try ePSXe for android or FPse for android both would do the job.
Why not use an emulator? I use My Boy! for gameboy advance, it's really good and I've played through Minish Cap (by far my favourite gameboy game) quite a few times on my phone. It's been excellent being able to relive my childhood!
Technically speaking downloading a ROM is piracy - but as I legitimately purchased the game as a child I think that's perfectly fine. Even if you didn't own a copy yourself I'd still recommend downloading it. It's a little on the short side as Zelda games go, but it definitely packs the punch and charm of its bigger brothers.
I would vote for the iOS or Android Version. The controls for the switch version are weird on a tv screen. Play on a high res mobile device.
Its also hard to come by cheap Switch copies.
the GBA emulator myboy (and possibly the gb emulator oldboy) can do wifi link!
> I like retroarch as I like the all in one UX. Is there a better option?
For N64? Mupen64Plus FZ.
Retroarch is great, but for some platforms there are better options. Specifically, Drastic for NDS, ePSXe for PS1, and Mupen64Plus FZ for N64. Retroarch is a fine option for pretty much anything else.
And no, the 32-bit Retroarch is generally the best option.
No, at least not currently. If your friend happens to have any windows pc he should be able to join if he uses the bedrock edition. He can download it from the microsoft store.
Also if he has an android phone he can join with that by using Minecraft Pocket Edition
Use this emulator ePSXe https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.epsxe.ePSXe
Then all you need is the PS1 bios extracted to /EPSXE/BIOS/
And iso of the game you want to play extracted either to your main storage or an external sdcard. If you already own the game it is easy to rip PS1 games using a PC or you can find iso online.
You can use on screen controls or a Bluetooth controller such as a Xbox one controller, PS4 controller (maybe), Ipega, Gamesir, Flydigi, etc.
Phone GBA emulators work really well. I use this one. It's annoying how you can't feel the buttons to react quickly, but this game has no time pressure.
I suggest, specifically, Mupen64Plus FZ, as there are one or two others which were garbage when I last tried them.
If he's looking to get it for his xbox or other console and he already has Minecraft then you just have to explain they're the same thing
Man, handheld N64 emulation was my #1 reason for buying my nVidia Shield. While Android with Mupen64Plus FZ is great for that, I would so love to have something that will play the actual cartridges (plus, if this potential system is a hardware-level clone, it'll probably have better compatibility and/or less bugs with those 'problem' games such as StarCraft64, Banjo Kazooie/Tooie, and Rayman 2: The Great Escape)...
No, it's free. I logged out of google play to see the price to be sure.
Are you sure you're not looking at some scam app?
It's pretty damn good for casual gaming, yesterday I had My Boy! (GBA emulator) running all day, in the foreground for 80% of the time on my Moto Z play and still managed a hardy 10+ hrs of SOT with 15% battery left.
mupen64plus-fz (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mupen64plusae.v3.fzurita&hl=en) supports hi res textures. It would probably depend on the game, but I would assume Super Mario 64 would work quite well on a Note 3
Sounds like you'll be pretty well served by SNES 9x:
They're both pretty solid emulators and work with the shield controller. To get ROMs you'll need to search around for download sites or torrent them, but they're really not that hard to find. Throw the ROMs on a USB stick, put that into the Shield and fire up the emulator and you're good to go.
If i go to the Play Store via the browser then it says incompatible with my r11 which is a shame as it would be perfect.
(I'm trying an APK extractor to see if that works, will report back shortly).
Ok..that was a few hoops to jump through. I got the apk off my phone via an Android app called "MyAppSharer", on the initial install (which I could do via Solid Explorer), it crashed my r11 but after rebooting, I ran the installation again and it worked. It took about 45 seconds to generate a world and playing around quickly, it's a little bit laggy but then I do have quite a few tabs open.
Overall, easily playable and I'm happy with it.
Could someone test something for me? If you have a Toshiba Chromebook 2, the 2015 Edition, can you test this app?
What I'm curious about is if a Bluetooth controller that is Bluetooth connected to the Chromebook will work so I could play Super Mario Brothers on the emulator. If that works I will buy one of those Chromebooks this afternoon
Try my version of mulen64plus:
It includes the GLideN64 plugin which makes a lot more games playable. You will need a higher end device though.
Latest version of ePSXe as of this comment is 2.0.6.
> Preferences > TouchScreen Gamepad > Gamepad Skin Editor Landscape/Portrait (Default)
Tap the analog stick so it's highlighted in green, and then press the + button at the top of the screen to increase it's size. If you went to far, then tap the – button to bring it back a bit.
If you only see the DPAD and not the Joystick, tap the Swap Mode button at the top of the screen.
Once you reached the desired size, tap the Save & Exit button.
Once in game, you'll see the Analog button to the right of the Select & Start buttons, tap that to switch between the "Joystick" and the DPAD in game.
You might want to get My Boy Pro a Game Boy Advance Emulator. It runs most games if just search game boy advance roms you'll find a lot of old GBA games. BTW $5.00 usd
Holy shit, are you Jerry? Don't worry dawg, they made content that is "suitable" for your level.
You'll spend many hours having great fun that requires no thought at all. You should feel right at home.
Skullgirls - I think I've run out of things to say about this game. I, uh, like the part where I punch people?
Vampire Savior - Goddamn this game is just so good, I wanna try and learn it seriously now. Capcom where's Darkstalkers 4 already?
Crypt of the Necrodancer - I may have had one good run, but everything else is lots and lots and lots of dying. Forget PBs, I just need to work on consistency.
Super Mario Maker - Alternating between stealing as many WRs as I can and practicing segments of my new Kaizo now that the design is finalized. Not actually doing full clear attempts yet though.
Shin Bokura no Taiyou: Gyakushuu no Sabata - Okay so I found the best fucking thing! An Android emulator that lets you use the device's light sensor as an emulated Solar Sensor! Sensitivity's a little weird, takes a lot to get one bar but then not much more to shoot up to ten bars, but it's the closest I'll ever get to being able to play this properly so I'll take it.
remove all the gamers
It's made by Mediocre, the studio behind big hits like Smash Hit or Does not Commute.
So fans probably see this as a no-brainer, because the other games were pretty unique and well made.
It is compatible, at least with the bluetooth ones.
I have <strong>this mini controller</strong>, there are a lot of incompatible games, but it works well with emulators.
Just tested it with Mario Kart on the <strong>My Boy</strong> emulator, pretty straight forward, no need for configuration.
That game that Jerry is playing exists, by the way:
I like all of his emulators. They run great, have slick, cusomizable controls (including controller support) and various graphics options. And he's quick to update them.
That's the link to the emulator.... Then you can go here http://www.freeroms.com/ to download the games...navigate to the Gameboy color/gameboy advanced section... Download whatever game you want into a folder you'll remember ( I recommend making a brans new folder on the phone titled gameboy games) ... Then you just load up the myboy emulator, hit load game and find the zip file in the folder you created, click the game and it should auto start...and there ya go
Smash Hit: "geometrischer" 3D-Schienenschießer, wirf Kugeln auf Glasgegenstände, bevor du hineinkrachst. Glaszerdeppern mit extrem zufriedenstellender Geräuschausrüstung, bissel Älter, deshalb auch von nicht ganz taufrischen Geräten mit hoher Einstellung nutzbar.
Gratisversion ist ohne Werbung, bezahlte Version bringt Checkpoints und mehr Modi.
Doesn't really fit your request, as it's an emulator, but maybe it helps you:
I really love the old games from the Famicom (alias SNES) like Chrono Trigger, Earth Bound and Secret of Mana. I use Snes9x EX+
What phone do you have? It can make a difference in which GameCube emulator to use.
For N64 I'd recommend the best choice as Mupen64Plus FZ, still updated all the time and has always offered the best performance.
For GameCube on mid-range phones I'd recommend Dolphin MMJ or MMJR(an updated version, but I've not used it), for high-end phones just the normal Dolphin emulator.
There might be other options for N64 but I'm pretty certain the linked one is the fastest, but for GameCube the only option is some variant of the Dolphin emulator for sure.
The World Ends With You
A formerly Nintendo DS game, but got ported to mobile OS along with adding other stuff. It's considered one of the top game I've ever played, not to mention the sick soundtrack it has.
Is a really good N64 emulator. I don't know what you are doing wrong. You could just need to tweak some settings. Or your device might not be able to handle those emulators.
For emulator, either Project 64 or Mupen64Plus.
For the rom, see the spreadsheet automod linked.
I've actually recently started playing on android with Mupen64Plus FZ
and I've had absolutely no problems with it! Just got Kooper and he works fine.
Works really well on a touchscreen, actually.
I played through all the AW games on my phone via emulators, first time I'd ever played them. It's an absolutely fantastic series and I'm eager to start playing them again.
This is the emulator I use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastemulator.gbafree
The rom I just Google "pokemon fire red rom". I have to re-download it everytime I get a new phone. Wich I recently did cuz I got a note 9.
My bro, check out The World Ends With You!
It's a solid modern JRPG, created by the legendary Tetsuya Nomura himself! It's got awesome beats, an intriguing plot and cool gameplay!
It's a bit pricey, so I'd recommend emulating the DS version on DraStic first, to get the hang of it.
Honestly, as far as JRPGs on mobile are concerned, you're better off emulating most of the classics. Square Enix did release a decent number of Android ports, but most of them are around 15 bucks, which is beyond what I can currently afford.
Get PPSSPP too. The PSP has a treasure trove of JRPGs that are worth checking out. Bonus points if you're able to snag a controller too.
A few titles, off the top of my head:
DS: Dragon Quest IV-V, SMT: Devil Survivor 1&2, SMT: Strange Journey, Front Mission, Pokemon BW & BW2 (has one of the best plots in the entire series).
PSP: Disgaea 1-2, P3P (a favorite of mine), Persona 1, Ys VII-VIII, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy Type-0 (complete fan TL available).
Super Retro 16 paid
In my travels most emulators work pretty good if you stock to 4+ ratings. It really comes down to how much space you are willing to donate to your emulator and how you want the UI to feel.
My Boy! apk. Done. Or pay under $5 for no ads. DraStic (Nintendo DS) works pretty well, too. ePSXE, too, but gets a little warm. After install, you do not need WiFi or any of that other business on to use them either. You can even use a bluetooth controller.
Unless it is for practice, is there really any reason to remove the rest? These work perfectly (or near perfectly) for me. So I guess, get Gapps nano?
Installed the proper emulator? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.epsxe.ePSXe&hl=en_GB
you can download games (called roms) if you already own them legally (cough) here... https://www.loveroms.com/roms/?q=crash+bandicoot

This should be your N64 emulator:
This is what I use for SNES, not pretty but it works well:
No problem, but what I meant was Mupen64Plus FZ standalone.
Retroarch is good for a lot of stuff but I still feel N64 and PSP are better on standalone emulators.
There are native N64 emulators on Android:
That's the most up to date one. So why would you run an emulator in an emulator?
