VGBC8 is a Gameboy Color emulator that allows you to play and store Gameboy and Gameboy Color games on your phone. The app includes a free demo.

The paid version allows you to:
- Store an infinite number of ROMs on your phone.
- Pin your ROMs to the start screen.
- Load and save at any time during gameplay (you can still save using the in-game saving methods in trial).
- Turbo mode by pressing the camera button.
- Import and export your saves using SkyDrive.
- Use Gameshark and GameGenie codes.

Changes in 1.1.0:
- Fixed a bug that sometimes interrupted the importing of save files.
- Added support for Gameshark and CodeBreaker codes. Cheat codes can be managed using the new entry in the ROMs context menu in the ROM list.
- Added a new entry to the ROMs context menu to manage save states (supports delete only for now).
- Added an option to the general settings to manually create snapshots as shown on tiles. If the option is activated, the emulators appbar has a new entry to create a snapshot.
- Increased the possible turbo mode frame skip to 10.

    Don't bother. Crashes ALL THE TIME and won't let you start off at your save spot when it does. There isn't a more frustrating app available. I would give it 0 stars if it let me.

    Excellent emulator!! It runs perfect in my 720. Needs a little bit of improvement in the joystick. Pretty awesome!!!
