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.

One of the very few apps that i'd give 5 stars after a pop-up asked me to rate it, but that happened after having the app installed for a week instead of seven seconds after. The app works great, is simple to understand, and the free version is more robust and capable than other emulators i've tried. Highly recommended.

Emulator works, but the layout to move around buttons won't apply when set in preferences, I decided to buy the pro and hoped it would fix it, but no luck, I still can't customize the layout like it is obviously programmed to do. Works, but no fully programmed, no reason to buy PRO unless you want fast forward, it's not actually behind the paywall. But it's really inconvenient to use unless you buy PRO Edit: After a few days playing it now I'm getting an error everytime the app is minimized

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.
