Last weekend we looked at the SNES emulator for WP, demoed on the Nokia Lumia 920.

Here’s a sneak preview of a Game Boy Advance emulator that’s said to be coming soon! It will be added to “Purple Cherry” the Gameboy Colour emulator.


The App is coming from Samuel Blanchard. Translation of his comment below by Dall0o:


I am new to the world of emulation and I did it just for fun first and foremost. GBA’s cover will release when I have the time to do it (in general during the holidays). My family and my work are my priority. Today, the application is written in C# and this is a port. Therefore, it is slower than SNES8X. GBA’s cover will be a kind of bonus of PurpleCherry. It will not be an independent app. To play, I recommend a dualcore’s phone but you can can still use a “normal” phone like a lumia 800 just for fun. To finish, GBA emulator will be inside free cover of PurpleCherry. All GBA’s game are not supported but the support of some games are very good : “Mariot Kart, Zelda Minish, Pokemon Fire,

    Good news! i though windows phone was getting behind the emulators..Snes, now GBA very nice.
    I have Emumaster on N9, real cool thing with Mega Drive (Genesis), Amiga, GBA, NES, SNES and Playstation 1.
    I have countless roms of all, it’s really nice to play Final Fantasy VII or IX with all those graphics.

    Will windows phone have a psx or ps2 emulator? That would be cool!

      I love Emumaster
      hands down the greatest phone app ever created.

  • Thats it where that trusty poke silver rom ?

    There seems to be a bug in gba emulators when jumping. Etc jumping + navigations tends not to work unless its map with button..

    Hope this does have any bugs when it’s out.

    I have my fingers crossed it will be finished soon. There are so many games for GBA that I’m figuratively dying to play.

  • Kristopher

    Looks good, but will it be able to be played on the 900?
