Reviews From google play store

BEST. EMULATOR. EVER. It's got ads, but gameplay is smooth and I like that you can choose to turn smoothing on or off because I personally hate smoothing so I'm glad there's an option to turn it off. you can put in cheats (some don't work but a majority do) and I also like how there's a speedup button because some games I just prefer to play sped up. I think this is the best gbc emulator if you don't mind ads.

It is good except when you push down 2 buttons at once then the app.starts pushing all the buttons for you and your character dies. Also you can only hold down 2 buttons at once and some to hold down three in order to get this app is good if you know to control it

You can control the layout and size of buttons and screen which is very nice. For the best experience turn off your wi-fi because the adds are quite annoying. Haven't noticed any lag or glitches while using it to play Pokemon Yellow so I do recommend.

Its a great emulator. Simple, fast. My only problem huge problem actually is that when i save and come back later my progress gets lost. Happened twice so im giving it up

Whenever i go to the settings, it has no back key to exit. it got stuck in the settings. Please fix these, just a "back key" is all it takes. Before your app deserves a 5 star.

App is great! Allows to save and load files, also has speed modifiers and allows you to plugin GameShark codes! The ads are reasonable and come at a fair rate. Nothing ridiculous, y'know? Also, because I know people will complain that it has no games but you have to download the games first. For example, search up "Pokémon Yellow GBC Download" on Google and BOOM. There ya go. Thabks for the great app! 10/5!!!

It does everything a gameboy emulator should do. Perhaps a little too much for a "lite" version. If anything, a strange thing this emulator does is restrict features in airplane mode...? Not even when there isn't any internet, it's just in airplane mode. I have no clue as to why. Dev please explain.

The A and B buttons are in an awkward position which makes it impossible to play mario games where they must be pressed simultaneously. Please make the buttons resizable and enable them to be relocated on the screen. Maybe have 1 button for AB at the same time. Otherwise, it works.

It is amazing apart from not having full proper colour for gameboy or the og green tint. But it runs well with no ads

Emulator works great! Only downside are the ads, if you ever wanted an emulator to slap you constantly with Raid shadow legend ads then this emulator is for you.

Please tell me why it will not work when there is a cheat then i put in the code i start to play the game and noting happens so i got and tryed 2 times to see if resteing it will work but no so see what is the matter with that or am i just do it wrong

This app spammed my phone with random ads that pop ups over any app even after I had deleted it. Someone tell me how to fix this I am very upset.

It is the best gbc emulator on internet. The controls need a little improvement though.

Great experience and great app. Its perfect for on the go playing and all you need to do is download an apk for that console.

This emulator used to work fine on my old phone (galaxy s5) but I am now having serious frame drops and latency for no reason on my j4+ (2018). Not entirely sure what the reason for this is but before this app lagged I rated it a 5 but now just a 1 because of such poor performance.

Functions optimally, as are intrusive and annoying.

After downloading it gave me a virus and now I've got ads poping up on my screen.

This wont work every time i try to play my rom it just crashes!

I love this emulator because you can play pokemon gold, silver, crystal, and probaly red and blue

I have been using these emulators since they popped up on the play store. never once had a problem with anything. people need to remember that this is a MOBILE APP and not the actual hand held device. nothing is perfect and if you think you can do better then go ahead and do it. 5 star for John GBA and GB. keep up the good work!

As with the GBA version, it will not allow access to the games' endings.

I like that it doesn't lock the save/load state function like MyBoy does behind a pay wall. However, it's pretty standard to have Cable Link function for all the Pokemon games these handhelds are known for. You can't evolve certain Pokemon without it. Would like to see this corrected in the future.

Ads are non-intrusive, buttons can be customised plenty, and it runs really well!

Really easy to delete data. And has to save in a stupid way.

this app definitely gets a five because without it i wouldnt be able to the zelda games and alot of the pokemon games. its very easy and not very hard to understand and use

I've always used John emulators and they work great.

its... okay I guess considering its free and it will do everything you want it to do with little lag and non intrusive ads

I don't like the interface. Just look how emulators are made for iOS and compare with one. No stupid text black menus, interface athat looks like the original hardware, that is how it should be done. The interface right now is like it wase made for android 2.0, very very unprofessional. Sad that a good programmed emulator lacks of a good designer.

Pretty good gb/c emulator but I'm having problems running this game i want to play. It's "The hands of Time" for gbc. It's mostly white screen. Aside from that all other games i tried run perfectly. I'd say the best for free on the playstore.

Ads are forced onto you as you close app and while playing , sleazy and grimy way to get hits devs i wont partake do now download this emulator

It's a great emulator with some pretty neat features. But it needs support for shaders. Also I'm experiencing some audio issues with Link's Awakening DX, it seems like after every few beats it skips a beat.

App secretly uses your mobile data, and lots of it. Doesn't show up under the app, rather it shows up under Android System. But make no question, its this app.

Emulates GB and GBC games perfectly. After installing the GBA version a while back, I longed for a GB/GBC version and finally got it! Ads aren't intrusive like on other lite versions of apps. You can click out of them right away! Quality app.

Ok so yeah great game, but what the heck is with the color's !? Not original.

Played for a few days then just out of the blue lost all progress on literally everything for no apparent reason at all. I've Used many emulators in my life never had this happen, on top of that Ads are constant, wouldn't waste your time.

This emulator later is best becoz of the following reasons : - its easy to download as it needs only less storage space - controllers are not complecated so the gameplay is very good - u can use romhacks and cheats too I wish they made for nds also

great app, i just need to know if i can open 2 games at once if i buy the full app. I am playing pokemon and I need to be able to do a ingame trade with another game opened at the same time. please let me know if this is possible

This is the only gameboy emulator that i have gotton to work. Its Great!

I love that I can play old games on a handheld I dont have. This emulator is awesome and SO much better that any other emulator.

It feels like a gameboy and runs very smoothly too

i had a great experience playing pokemon gold. i was 7 badges in until I hit that upload button up at the top on accident....completley reset my game to the beginning with no way of loading back to where i left off....WHY IS THIS BUTTON THERE?

This is really helpful but if possible a feature allowing you to connect locally between games, so for example you could trade pokemon between games? That would be very useful, otherwise 5 stars :)

A great Emulator loading app, a little confusing if you do not know how to download ROMs onto your device first. Not many problems, customizable, allows the use of cheats. Ecspecially great with pomemon games.

poor customization of virtual pad. D pad can't be splitted in parts

I used it for about three hours during a few dayd span. Now it just crashes on launching the application. Galaxy S9

if the game allowed you to disable button input vibrations and made the directional arrows slightly bigger so it was smoother transitioning of the thumb it would of got a 5 star review

The controls are very diffcult to use on gbor gba ot get annoying

The buttons are sometimes hard to operate.

Best emulator graphics are best cheats are easily worked

It's awesome and I can just download my own game up and I can just play it

No support for motion? Does the paid version have it? Won't even boot up kirby tilt 'n tumble, which boots fine with retroarch but unfortunately doesn't have motion support as well.

All in all it is a great emulator but one thing I have encountered is that my gameshark codes dont work they are proper gameshark codes, I dont really know but can you fix it?

i just bought the add free game, but it still asks me if i want to see ads of buy the add free game (what i just did....) i bought the game without adds on april 19th, still i don't have the game without adds....

A really great emulator with full emulation speed and controls. Great work by John Emulators

If you can make PS2,3 or 4 emulator that would be better.but still this emulator is really good,love it

I love it but i play mario land 2 it just gray scale not colored your demos are colored

works wonderfully helped me play many old school titles thanks!

Thank you so much for making it easy and free to use love it can you make a ds emulator?

Another great app. Roms fall into a legal grey area so don't expect these emulators to come with roms.

Really easy to use, download game files online (I used romsmania), then search your downloads

in my own personal opinion i think it needs legend of zelda games to start with the normal 10 games

The overall emulator is good and I love downloading my roms so I recommend this app

worst app can't even load cheats, and say too many ads. I don't recommend this emulator.

Awesome emulator, works perfectly.

does a great job of what it's supposed to do, good features

Too much ads

Very nice emulator I recommend, I'm using now

Best free GBC emulator I've found.

Worst emulator ever. Can't even load most roms.

this is amazing but can you plz add link local i really wanna evolve my kadabra other than that this is my favorite emulator

Pokemon x version works but omega ruby is not working

It's an amazing emulator, not much else to say

doesnt save properly its done it to me twice now i save the game through the app come next day and it did save where i was up to

I already download pokemon fire red but when scanning there is nothing

Love it, is there a way to turn off the vibration

it's the best emulators and soo easy to use

Its the screen its not properly


ur emulators are simple to play because other emulators are are hard to play cause u cant find a files so I'm gonna give this 5 star

It helps me play Pokemon when I lose my real game boy

Great experience of Game Boy Color!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It works really well, thank you, Devs

Best emulator ever suggestion Make a john NDS Lite and John NDS or N3DS emulator

worst GBC ever , I can't find the saved file and a GBC file is installed in my device yet it is saying no GBC file found

best emulator on the app store! (for gbc games)

This emulator really helps me relive my childhood

i was hoping to play magi-nation for the GBC on this thing... T.T

remove ads please

Easy, simple, AWESOME!

For some reason my save slot is gone

i love the app but i would like to see Pokemon SoulSilver and maybe HeartGold

The controls suck but the rest is okay

The game auto saves when u close it got stuck in a loop thanks jackass

Yeah pay for loading games Mhm like Konami

Love this app can spend hours on it

Can you make the screen short as you do in your GBA app

needs a online for pokemon trading or multiplayer games

Can't add cheats,when we add cheats it's get auto deleted.

good app I love playing the classic game

i hate emulators that dont have already installed games
