Step 1: Setting Up

follow the pictures, derp.

Step 2: Questions

What did you make?

I didn't really make anything, I was just showing you how to play your old gameboy games on your phone. It basically simulates a gameboy so you can play games. It's all free as well! All you need is an *Android* phone or tablet!

How did you make it?

One day, I saw a guy playing Pokemon on his phone, and I decided to figure out how i could play it on my phone as well. I did this independently, and I really just googled gameboy emulator and boom, this came up. After this, the rest was pretty straightforward.

Where did you make it?

I did this all at home, and I did this because I was bored of just playing subway surfers on my phone. And yes, pokemon emerald is exciting.

What did you learn?

The biggest challenge was probably finding the software I needed, but it was still really easy. I'm proud of the fac that I could play gameboy on my phone. And If I were to design my own app for this, I probably would have included some games with it.

    A lot of these pictures show console titles that aren't actually on the website

    Well I have a LG Volt and I downloaded My Boy and went to the website to download games but it doesn't seem to want to download games. Why is that?

    Although this works, I prefer RetroArch. It can emulate GBA, Sega systems, Playsation one (assuming your phone is new and powerful enough), Atari, et cedera.
    Just a thought.
