How to play GBA games on Android – with the best


Did you know that your Android has the power to play Game Boy Advance games? With a few choice downloads and a little know-how, you can play Fire Emblem, Pokemon, or Mario Kart on your phone.

We scoured Google Play, searched the internet, and tried a handful of GBA emulators for Android. After a lot of testing (and a lot of Advance Wars), we think GBAoid is your best bet.

For one, it’s completely free. Rival Visual Boy Advance has an almost identical set of features, but that one will set you back £2.99. GBAoid also has cheats, configurable controls (including for the Xperia Play), top-notch performance, and even the ability to fast-forward boring cutscenes.

Here’s our guru guide to downloading GBAoid, installing the emulator, and loading up your favourite games.

Note: Pocket Gamer does not condone piracy, and offers this information for entertainment purposes only. Pocket Gamer also takes no responsibility if you follow this guide and manage to bugger up your phone in the process. That’s on you, bro.

Riviera: The Promised Land

20061122 1 comment

Riviera: The Promised Land (Riviera ~約束の地リヴィエラ~, Riviera: Yakusoku No Chi Riviera?) is a console role-playing game originally produced in 2002 by Sting Entertainment for WonderSwan Color as the first episode of the Dept. Heaven series of games. The game was later introduced to Nintendo’s Game Boy Advance in 2004, which Atlus USA released in North America in 2005. An enhanced remake was released for the PlayStation Portable in November 2006, and was released in July 2007 in North America by Atlus USA.[1] Riviera: The Promised Land became a sleeper hit because of its twist to the RPG standard.

The player takes the role of Ein, a Grim Angel, who must battle against demons as well as antagonistic Grim Angels to seal away the four fountainheads of evil known as the Accursed. He is accompanied by four heroines—Fia, Lina, Serene and Cierra—as well as his cat-like familiar Rose. Riviera also contains dating sim elements, as the hero can achieve multiple endings with the supporting characters through decisions made throughout the game.

Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone is a tactical role-playing game for the Game Boy Advance and PlayStation Portable, developed by Sting Entertainment as the second episode of the Dept. Heaven saga of games. Atlus USA localized and published both versions of the game in North America. 505 Games published the Game Boy Advance version in a limited number of European countries, such as Italy and France. A Nintendo DS side-game was released in Japan on December 3, 2009 as Yggdra Unison: Seiken Buyuuden.

The game is a tactical RPG with an overhead view of a 2D map, managing miniature versions of the units. A card system dictating unit movement and potential skills plays into both enemy and ally turns, as well as the “Union” formation system, in which massive battles can take place between several platoons. There are also some real time elements included during actual battle sequences, such as being able to control how units attack the enemy.
