This is the lite version of Nostalgia.GBC. It is ad-supported and some features (manual progress saving/loading and game rewinding) are enabled only when ads are displayed (ie. when you are connected to the internet). We do not want to disturb you during gameplay - no ads will be displayed when a game is running.

If you like this app, consider purchasing the full version.

Easy to use, pretty responsive, no performance issues yet that weren't on the original GBC and the ads are pretty uninvasive. The only issue I have is that I can't seem to get the d-pad in a really good spot because you can't even slightly overlap buttons and there are a few extras that I don't use and I can't remove them.

I tried this app because I wanted to use LSDJ to make music. I quickly noticed that audio would frequently skip while playing games, so this app doesn't fit my needs. There's also an audio pop whenever I open games, which is an issue that other apps don't have. Also unlike other apps, you're not given a warning prompt if you close a game without saving. Gameboy Color games seem slightly under saturated compared to other emulators. This app is still perfectly useable, but it's not my first choice

It's a dope free emulator. The UI is really nice and customizable and it has save states. However, I was trying to pull my .sav file to play on pc and couldn't locate it. If it's not possible here, then this emulator is dead to me. If you're not planning on transfering saves between pc/android you're good. They have android/android save data transfer.
