Why the John GBA Lite PC app
The Gameboy Advance (shortened to GBA) is not only one of the best selling handheld gaming consoles ever it also had an expansive catalog of games. Now you can play any GBA games you want on your phone.
From the early titles of the Pokemon series to Fire Emblem, it seemed that there was no end to the number of amazing games that were released for this platform. Even up to now, some of these games are still being played. I mean, just a couple of months ago the whole internet was in a frenzy playing Pokemon Red on Twitch.tv
John GBA Lite PC is the successor to two of the best Game Boy emulators for Android. It replaces John GBA and John GBC and puts the functionality of both under a single roof for less than the cost of both of them separately. It’s an excellent emulator from a developer that does excellent emulators. You get both virtual and hardware controller support along with SD card support, turbo buttons, up to 16 times fast forward, down to 0.25 slow down, and even some extra stuff like Dropbox and cheat codes. It’s one of the ones we’d recommend first and it should work with basically any ROM.
John GBA lite emulator only supports GBA games. This means that you won’t be able to load ROMs of your Gameboy and Gameboy Color carts.
John GBA Lite for PC is the free version of the app that’s also available on the Google Play store and it offers all the same features as the paid version. The only difference between Paid and Free version is the ad display. If you don’t like to watch ads during your gameplay then buy the paid version to get rid of all the ads and support the further development of the app.
There’s nothing fancy with the John GBA Lite for Windows emulator’s user interface. Once the app is installed it will automatically search for ROMs on your device’s internal and external storage. This auto-search can be canceled though and the player can opt to go directly to the ROM’s location on his phone or SD card.
