If you're nostalgic about your GameBoy or Gameboy Advance then VisualBoyAdvance could be the program for you.

VisualBoyAdvance, also known as Mac Boy Advance, emulates all the games of the popular portable Nintendo consoles. VisualBoyAdvance supports 148Kb Flash and the application of automatic IP patches. This GBA emulator is written specifically for OS X and according to the developers, has a higher compatibility than Boycott Advance.

However, expect some bugs while using it. Recent updates to OS X seem to have made it liable to crashes or a tendency to display screens incorrectly or not at all. However, depending on the game you want to play, it may be the only emulator that runs it for you. However, it does work with Intel Macs running Lion.

VisualBoyAdvance isn't perfect but is a must for all hardcore fans of GameBoy games.

Changes

  • Fixed a crashing bug with fullscreen mode.
  • New preferences layout.
  • In sync with the PC version.

If you're nostalgic about your GameBoy or Gameboy Advance then VisualBoyAdvance is the program for you. You can emulate all the games of the popular portable Nintendo consoles.
