VBA8 is a Gameboy Advance emulator that allows you to play and store Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance games on your phone. This app is based on the code provided by M.k. The app includes a free demo. Email store.support@outlook.com for anything.

- Play all gameboy games (GBA, GBC and GB)
- Auto save and load your progress (need to enable in Settings)
- Auto backup your progress to OneDrive (need to enable in Settings).
- Link with other phones and with PC through Wifi. Go to FAQs link to download the PC app.
- MOGA controller (Pocket, Pro, Hero Power, Pro Power) support.
- Customize virtual controller position.
- Three virtual controller styles to choose from.
- Pin your ROMs to the start screen.
- Turbo mode by pressing the camera button or virtual onscreen button.
- Import and export your saves using SkyDrive.
- Cheat code support.

LEGAL NOTE: Only a free game is included in this app. You have to obtain roms in your own way. Many free and public domain roms can be found online. The author does not condone and is not responsible for illegal use of the program. This product is not affiliated with, nor authorized, endorsed or licensed in any way by Nintendo Corporation, its affiliates or subsidiaries.
★★★★ NEW ★★★★
- Add option to disable Linear filter
- Bug discovered: Virtual buttons do not work probably if they overlap the system tray area. This mostly happens in landscape for button near the edge of the screen such as L, R, Left and A.   This is a limitation of windows phone; the only solution is to reposition the buttons so that they are not too close to the edge.

- I tried updating the app to WP8.1 to take advantage of the new features but Moga controller stopped working, so we are stuck with a WP8.0 app until Moga update their library.
- If you found your purchased features disabled, just click on the purchase button, enter your Wallet PIN if necessary and you will be able to activate your paid feature without having to pay again.
- If you store your app on SD Card, it is recommended that check "Create tile pictures manually" for better performance when exiting game.

    Really love the app! I was concerned that hitting the home button on accident would lose the progress i made, but that issue seems to have been resolved. As of yet I can't say anything bad. Great work!

    Best gba emulator app on the market hands down. I use this app to play Pokemon and it is a very excellent app. It does not crash and the controls are very responsive. In order to get roms you have to download them. The best website to get them from would probably be dope roms. And best of all this emulator supports cheats so you can mess around and have whatever you want. 10/10 would download :)
