A Review about GameBoid

a review from gameboid.com

Let us have a brief history about the GameBoy Advance (GBA) to better understand our inclination towards GameBoid. As you are probably well aware, the GBA is one of the latest releases of GameBoy which started gaining popularity in the late 1980s. The GBA proved to be quite successful, and even hosted numerous games that we all enjoyed, such as the SNES and some really cool exclusives like Castevania and Zelda.
Take note that in spite of the visual experience you can get from SNES titles in GBA, the GameBoid certainly has held a firm and solid ground, and never had to struggle in a way that others do. Sound and speed have never posed any problem.

It can play all game titles, and although there are minor glitches in terms of slowdown and stutters, the quality offered is definitely better than Gensoid and Nesoid, and is clearly so much better than the SNesoid.

The GameBoid can provide scaling effects and sprite rotation, and contains numerous options for you to customize whatever it is that you would like. This includes changing the aspect ratio, change screen size, assign buttons in the keyboards, and save your game with the one-click save feature. - GENSoid SEGA Genesis
ROMs obtained from the Net do carry risks in terms of legal copyrights, and you may get into trouble if you get one unless you are the owner of the original cartridge. This stuff is pretty boring so we aren’t going to discuss these. All you need to know is the bottom line which is to make sure you understand that getting copyrighted ROMs will most likely get you into trouble, if you aren’t careful. SNESoid Super Nintendo Android
Being the most expensive yongzh emulator priced at $3.99, the developer made sure it is worth the price by ensuring topnotch quality for this emulator. This being said, we only have good things to say about the GameBoid. If you have tried it, surely, you will be nodding your head in agreement.
